NEO-5M: Small profile GPS receiver module
u-blox 5 ROM-based GPS receiver module
The NEO-5M is a highly cost-effective stand-alone GPS receiver module, which offers numerous connectivity options in a miniature 16 x 12.2 x 2.4 mm package. The module's compact architecture and its low power consumption makes it ideal for battery operated mobile devices with very strict cost and space constraints.
The NEO-5M features u-blox' SuperSense® Indoor GPS technology that offers unmatched tracking performance in harsh signal environments such as parking lots and dense urban environments. The module's architecture further ensures costs are kept at a minimum by using a crystal instead of a TCXO and replacing costly Flash EPROM with an internal Read-Only Memory (ROM) in the GPS baseband chip.
