u-blox, a global provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies, today announced its UBX‑P3 chip for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) wireless communication based on the DSRC/802.11p standard. The chip builds on the success of the u-blox THEO‑P1 and VERA-P1 V2X modules, and the company’s experience as a technology supplier to the existing V2X chip industry. Developed entirely in-house, […]
u-blox and Arduino introduced four new boards to their MKR family, delivering enhanced wireless connectivity options for IoT applications. Previously Arduino adopted u-blox for their MKR GSM 1400, now one of the most popular boards of the MKR family for its unique characteristics and robustness. Arduino introduced the MKR family and form factor to address […]
Arduino announced Uno WiFi Rev 2, the company’s first AVR-based, natively-enabled IoT board. This new addition to the Arduino product family will address the demand of the growing IoT market, especially in need of wireless connectivity and low power requirements. Arduino Uno WiFi Rev 2 includes a new enhanced AVR microcontroller from Microchip, making it even […]
u‑blox announced the latest member of its ZOE‑M8 series of ultra‑small GNSS SiPs. The ZOE‑M8B is a GNSS System‑in‑Package (SiP) available for small battery powered consumer devices such as portable and wearable devices targeting the fitness, health monitoring, and personal tracker markets. Small battery powered devices are defined by their limited size, weight and power, which dictates that […]
