Product description
EVK-7, EVK-8 and EVK-M8 evaluation kits make evaluating the high
performance of u-blox 7, u-blox 8, and u-blox M8 positioning technol-
ogy simple. The built-in USB interface provides both power supply and
high-speed data transfer, and eliminates the need for an external pow-
er supply. u-blox 7, u-blox 8, and u-blox M8 evaluation kits are com-
pact, 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.
