A convenient breakout board (BoB) for the u-Blox SAM-M8Q GNSS receiver, compatible with GLONASS, GPS and Galileo. The board provides a 50 mm x 50 mm ground plane under the patch antenna, which enables optimal reception in the 1.575 - 1.6 GHz range. Communication through I²C (pullup resistors included) and UART is supported. Designed for 3.3V operation. Pinout on text overlay and reset button included.
This design is based on the MikroE GNSS receiver.
Rev. 2.0 adds power line and UART series filtering for improved ESD resistance.
