EVK-8 / EVK-M8 - Evaluation kits for u-blox 8 & M8 concurrent GNSS positioning technology

EVK-8 / EVK-M8 evaluation kits enable simple evaluation of the high performance u-blox 8 and u-blox M8 positioning technology.

EVK‑8/EVK‑M8 evaluation kits enable simple evaluation of the high performance u‑blox 8 and u‑blox M8 positioning technology. The built‑in USB interface provides both power supply and high‑speed data transfer, and eliminates the need for an external power supply. u‑blox 8/M8 evaluation kits are compact, and their user‑friendly interface and power supply make them ideally suited for use in laboratories, vehicles and outdoor locations.

Furthermore, they can be used with a PDA or a notebook PC, making them the perfect companion through all stages of design‑in projects. The kits are to be used with a PC via USB interface. USB drivers are provided with the software package.


  • Easy to use
