Antenova’s compact antenna boosts GNSS signals
CES 2018: Antenova launches a compact, all-in-one active GNSS antenna, at the show in Las Vegas. The M20047-1 adds another option to the company’s range of positioning antennae and modules.
The M20047-1 operates in the 1559 to 1609MHz bands, and offers designers a space-saving option for small tracking devices.
Antenova says its key features are the active components, the built-in LNA and filter, which act to boost the signal to the GNSS processor in environments where there is a restricted view of the sky and line-of-sight to the horizon is difficult. With the LNA and filtering already built into the antenna, designers will not need to add them, saving space on the PCB.
The M20047-1 is a very low profile rigid FR4 antenna measuring 7.0 x 7.0 x 1.1mm, making it suitable for use in small tracking devices. It is suitable for tracking all kinds of moving objects, telematics and wearable sports devices.
The M20047-1 antenna is also named Active Sinica and is an alternative to Antenova’s Sinica antenna (part no SR4G008), which is marketed for accurate positioning.
Antenova’s antennas are specifically designed for easy integration, however the company provides full engineering support to help customers with all aspects of antenna testing, tuning and integration.
Antenova develops and supplies integrated antennae and RF solutions for wireless communication, consumer electronic and wireless M2M devices.
Antenova’s broad range of standard antennae and RF modules are suitable for GSM, CDMA, 3G, 4G, LTE, NB-IoT, GPS, GNSS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, LP-WAN, LoRa, Sigfox, Weightless-P and ISM, for M2M and IoT applications.
Antenova provides design advice and technical support, including custom antenna design, engineering, integration and test services.
