The company’s product portfolio includes cellular chips, narrowband (NB) IoT modules, short-range radio components, antennas, and positioning systems in packages (SIPs).

What are some examples of outstanding U-Blox products?

The corporation provides cutting-edge high-quality products like chip antennas, modular, GNSS antennas, cellular chips. Some of the best products from the firm include SARA-U201-03B-00, which is a part of the SARA-U2 series modules. The product is a 3.75G UMTS/HSPA solution with GSM/(E)GPRS fall-back in the miniature (26.0 x 16.0 mm, 96-pin) SARA LGA form factor, allowing for seamless drop-in migration from/to other U-Blox cellular module families.

The SARA-U2 modules have HSPA data rates of 7.2 Mbit/s (downlink) and 5.76 Mbit/s (uplink) (uplink). The modules provide data and voice communication over a wide operating temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C, with low-power consumption and a comprehensive feature set that includes dual-stack IPv4 / IPv6. The SARA-U2 series includes variants that support band combinations for global operation, including North America, Europe, Asia, and other regions. There is also a low-cost UMTS-only variant.

The EVK-JODY-W2 module in the JODY-W2 series enables an external host processor to access several useful features for testing and evaluating the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity supported by JODY-W2 series modules. The JODY-W2 series is a family of compact modules based on the NXP 88W8987 chipset. AEC-Q100 compliant chipsets are used in the automotive-grade JODY-W2 modules. They support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) communication and are ideal for automotive and industrial use.

The U-Blox ANN-MB1 multi-band (L1/L5/E5a/B2a/NavIC) active GNSS antenna is intended to shorten the time-to-market for the next generation of high-precision GNSS applications that require highly accurate location capabilities. It is an extremely fast, easy, and dependable multi-band antenna solution due to its compact design, excellent price-to-performance ratio, and versatile mounting options. The ANN-MB1 antenna is a perfect match for the U-Blox F9 platform, supporting L1 and L5 bands and providing customers with the valuable antenna solution they require to minimize evaluation and design-in efforts.
