DownloadsA USB interface (micro USB port), which is compatible with the USB version2.0 FS (Full Speed, 12 Mbit/s), can be used for communication as analternative to the UART.The USB port can be used as a power supply as well if you need the clickboard to be a standalone device.NEO-M8N GNSS receiver module featuresThe NEO-M8 series of concurrent GNSS modules are built on the highperforming u-blox M8 GNSS engine in the industry proven NEO form factor.

The NEO-M8 series utilizes concurrent reception of up to three GNSSsystems (GPS/Galileo together with BeiDou or GLONASS), recognizesmultiple constellations simultaneously and provides outstandingpositioning accuracy in scenarios where urban canyon or weak signals areinvolved.The u-blox NEO-M8 modules can also benefit from the u-blox AssistNowassistance service. The Online service provides GNNS broadcastparameters, e.g. ephemeris, almanac plus time or rough position to reducethe receiver’s time to first fix significantly and improve acquisition sensitivity.Hardware Backup Mode - If the main supply voltage fails, and a battery isconnected to V BCKP, parts of the receiver switch off, but the RTC still runsproviding a timing reference for the receiver. This operating mode enablesall relevant data to be saved in the backup RAM to allow a hot or warm startlater.What is GNSS?GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite System, an umbrella term thatdescribes both the United States GPS, the Russian GLONASS globalpositioning systems, and European Galileo.How it worksA constellation of satellites sends a continuous signal towards Earth.Onboard every satellite is an atomic clock, and all of them are synchronized,thanks to a reference time scale defined by the whole system. So, that thesignals coming from the different satellites of the same constellation sharethe same reference time scale.If the user wants to utilize GNSS to determine a position, they must have anantenna that receives the signals coming from the satellites, and a receiverthat translates these signals. The antenna position will be deduced from themeasurements of the time delay between the emission time (satellite) andthe reception time (receiver) for at least 4 signals coming from differentsatellites.Specifications
