The VERA-P3 Series from u-blox are Automotive Grade 802.11p V2X Transceiver Modules that operate in the 5.9 GHz frequency band. These automotive-grade modules are based on the u-blox UBX-P3 chip for 802.11p, which offers superior RF performance and is qualified in accordance with the highly demanding AEC-Q100 grade 2 specification. The modules support diversity in both transmit and receive directions, thus providing vehicles full coverage with no “dead” areas. It can support a data rate of up to 27 Mbps (10 MHz channel) and 54 Mbps (20 MHz channel).
VERA-P3 modules feature an Ethernet host interface, which allows maximal flexibility in placing the module in a vehicle, independent of the distance from the host processor. They offer a solution for smart antennas and distributed systems in the vehicle and support operation of a smart antenna compensator. These modules are available in a 160-pin LGA package that measures 24.8 x 29.6 x 3.5 mm with two variants: module with single antenna; module with dual antenna, single-channel with diversity. The VERA-P3 series is fully compliant with WAVE and ETSI ITS G5 for US and European operations.
