ALEX-R5 series Image

The ALEX-R5 Series from u-blox is an Ultra-small LTE-M/NB-IoT System-in-Package (SiP) with integrated GNSS functionality. It combines the secure u-blox UBX-R5 IoT chipset and the u-blox UBX-M8230 GNSS chipset with the highest level of integration in a SiP. The LTE-M and NB-IoT module supports a comprehensive set of 3GPP Rel. 14 features that are relevant for IoT applications, like improvements to power consumption, coverage, data rate, mobility, and positioning.

The Super-E mode of the GNSS receiver provides ALEX-R510M8S with an ideal balance between low power and good performance. It is optimized for power-sensitive and battery-powered applications, featuring a sub-μA current consumption in PSM mode.

The ALEX-R5 offers a dedicated GNSS serial interface and a dedicated GNSS antenna interface, which provides highly reliable and accurate positioning data concurrent with LTE communication. In addition, the module offers unique hybrid positioning, in which the GNSS position is enhanced with u-blox CellLocate® data, providing location always and everywhere. The module has built-in, hardware-based Secure Cloud functionality supporting IoT-Security-as-a-Service.

The SiP is available in a 133-pin LGA package that measures 14 x 14 x 1.5 mm and is ideal for size-constrained devices like people and animal wearables, small asset trackers, portable healthcare systems and other small IoT applications.
