C16 - Telematics application board

The C16 wireless and GNSS application board is a complete and integrated solution for telematics applications.

The C16-C20/U20/G35 wireless and GNSS application board is a complete and integrated solution for telematics applications such as fleet management, asset tracking, road pricing, and security/surveillance.

It demonstrates the integration of u-blox' MAX-7 GNSS receiver with a u-blox wireless module. Utilizing the u-blox nested design concept, it provides the option to embed either a LISA-U200 W-CDMA, or SARA-G350 GSM/GPRS module.

This application board supports full access to the MAX-7Q GNSS module via the wireless module. Thus wireless and GNSS functionality can be controlled through a single serial port from any host processor. Direct access to the GNSS and wireless modules is also available via two mini USB connectors. The high performance u-blox 7 GNSS engine enables navigation even in weak signal environments.

Application boards are intended to assist system integrators to develop their own end products quickly with fast time-to-market. On request, u-blox provides comprehensive technical documentation including schematics, layouts, BOM and design recommendations.
