Compact Antenna Boosts GNSS Signals

Antenova’s all-in-one active GNSS antenna, part number M20047-1 adds another option to the company’s existing range of positioning antennas and modules. The M20047-1 operates in the 1559 MHz to1609 MHz bands, and offers designers a useful, space-saving option for small tracking devices.

 

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, and can save space on their PCB.
