The NEO-6M module series brings the high performance of the u-blox6 position engine to the miniature NEO form factor. u-blox6 has been designed with low power consumption and low costs in mind. Intelligent power management is a breakthrough for low-power applications. These receivers combine a high level of integration capability with flexible connectivity options in a small package. This makes them perfectly suited for mass-market end products with strict size and cost requirements. The DDC interface provides connectivity and enables synergies with u-blox LEON and LISA wireless modules.

[!] Note : We are importing these modules from China. It is learnt (but not confirmed) that these modules may have recovered GPS modules from other products. The recovered modules are then soldered on new pcbs to sale for hobby electronics market. We at Art of Circuits test all of these GPS modules before sale.

Package Includes

  • 1x Ublox NEO-6M-V2 GPS Module with EEPROM (Tested and QC-OK by Art of Circuits)
  • 1 x Detachable Antenna.

1.7.2 Timepulse and frequency reference
NEO-6T comes with a timepulse output which can be configured from 0.25 Hz up to 10 MHz. The timepulse can
either be used for time synchronization (i.e. 1 pulse per second) or as a reference frequency in the MHz range. A
timepulse in the MHz range provides excellent long-term frequency accuracy and stability.

1.7.3 Time mark
NEO-6T can be used for precise time measurements with sub-microsecond resolution using the external interrupt
(EXTINT0). Rising and falling edges of these signals are time-stamped to the GPS or UTC time and counted. The
Time Mark functionality can be enabled with the UBX-CFG-TM2 message
For details, please refer to the u-blox 6 Receiver Description including Protocol Specification [2].

1.8 Raw data
Raw data output is supported at an update rate of 5 Hz on the NEO-6T and NEO-6P. The UBX-RXM-RAW
message includes carrier phase with half-cycle ambiguity resolved, code phase and Doppler measurements,
which can be used in external applications that offer precision positioning, real-time kinematics (RTK) and
attitude sensing.

1.9 Automotive Dead Reckoning
Automotive Dead Reckoning (ADR) is u-blox’ industry proven off-the-shelf Dead Reckoning solution for tier-one
automotive customers. u-blox’ ADR solution combines GPS and sensor digital data using a tightly coupled
Kalman filter. This improves position accuracy during periods of no or degraded GPS signal.
The NEO-6V provides ADR functionality over its software sensor interface. A variety of sensors (such as wheel
ticks and gyroscope) are supported, with the sensor data received via UBX messages from the application
processor. This allows for easy integration and a simple hardware interface, lowering costs. By using digital
sensor data available on the vehicle bus, hardware costs are minimized since no extra sensors are required for
Dead Reckoning functionality. ADR is designed for simple integration and easy configuration of different sensor
options (e.g. with or without gyroscope) and vehicle variants, and is completely self-calibrating
