The product is a simple but full-featured breakout board for the CAM-M8C GNSS module from u-blox and its integrated antenna. Much effort has been given to lay the board out to the manufacturer’s specifications, meeting all ground plane recommendations. The purpose of the breakout board is two-fold:

  1. Provide an easy way for beginners to get hands-on experience with a GPS/GNSS module and to see how code they write can work with it.
  2. Provide designers specifically interested in the CAM-M8C or CAM-M8Q modules with an inexpensive way to see if these modules from u-blox will meet their needs. The CAM-M8C and CAM-M8Q are nearly identical. The M8C has a crystal while the M8Q uses a TCXO oscillator. Additionally, the minimum supply voltage for the M8C is lower.

The datasheet for the breakout board can be found here.
Follow one of the tutorials found here to get up and moving quickly with the breakout board.

The breakout board can also be purchased directly from Digi-Key here.
