The RADIONOVA M20047-1 from Antenova is an active antenna module for GNSS applications from 1559-1609 MHz. It supports GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO and BeiDou constellations. The antenna module consists of an SMD antenna with built-in active components: an LNA and SAW filter to boost antenna performance in environments where there is a restricted view of the sky or where line-of-sight to the horizon is difficult.
It is available in a 7.0 x 5.0 mm surface mount package and is ideal for small positioning devices where space on the PCB is tight, for example in wearable devices, asset tracking, sports cameras and equipment and smart watches. There is also added an external matching feature to compensate for any de-tuning of the antenna caused by proximity to other components, such as a plastic case or a battery.
