New Antenova Surface-mount GPS Antenna Modules
UK's Antenova introduces two new surface mount GPS RADIONOVA® RF antenna modules fore embedded GPS & M2M applications.
Both the M10477 and M10478 are low profile, fully optimized, complete GPS receiver modules comprising a CSR SiRFstarIV™ low-power navigation processor, all front-end RF components and Antenova’s high performing GPS antenna. Designed to be a convenient drop in solution, M10477 and M10478 RF Antenna Modules benefit from Antenova’s novel external matching for greater design flexibility.
“Antenova has enjoyed great success with our CSR/SiRF-based RF antenna modules, and the M10477 and M10478 modules are the result of customer demand for lower profile, surface mountable versions with the market leading SiRFstarIV GPS engine,” stated Greg McCray, CEO of Antenova.
“The high performing M10477 is a small 24.2 x 9.9 x 3.8mm3 complete GPS receiver module in a popular SMD form factor which benefits from Antenova’s GPS antenna utilizing the latest Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) technology. The M10478 is the industry’s smallest and lowest profile GPS radio antenna module, providing optimal GPS reception, in an ultra small 13.8 x 9.5 x 1.8mm3 drop in solution.”
McCray added, “The embedded GPS and M2M markets continue to grow at a steady pace, with many new device applications enriching our day to day lives. Antenova remains committed to providing customers with high performing GPS RF antenna modules with receiver options from leading GPS IC vendors and form factors that are best suited for their embedded GPS applications.”
Antenova is a leading developer and supplier of high performing integrated antennas and RF solutions for wireless communication, consumer electronic and wireless M2M devices.
