Designed for use in rugged environments and wide temperature range, MAX-M5Q is an ideal positioning solution for industrial machine-to-machine (M2M) applications as well as Russia's ERA-GLONASS emergency call system. MAX-M5Q enhances positioning in poor GNSS satellite visibility conditions as well as in high latitude and polar regions. According to the vendor, the module is able to track all 50 US and Russian satellites.
With dimensions of only 9.7 x 10.1 x 2.5 mm, MAX-M5Q is the newest member of u-blox’ industry-standard compact MAX GNSS LCC module series. Additional features include autonomous A-GPS that reduces warm start TTFF by as much as 90%, and an embedded data logger which can store location information to internal Flash memory for up to 16 hours at 15 second intervals.
