The ceramic patch GNSS antennas comprise surface-mount and through-hole pin options over three sizes, allowing engineers to balance size, performance, manufacturability, and cost in their systems.
These GNSS antennas comprise the surface-mount 12- x 12-mm ANT-GNSSCP-SM12L1 and two adhesive-mount, through-hole pin antennas, the 18- x 18-mm ANT-GNSSCP-TH18L1 and the 25- x 25-mm ANT-GNSSCP-TH25L1. All are 4 mm thick and employ right-hand circular polarization (RHCP) for optimal satellite reception looking skyward. Additionally, all three antennas support high-temperature operation, to +105 ˚C, supporting qualification in automotive systems requiring AEC-Q200 reliability.
“GNSS is an integral function to the Internet of Things which often sees devices serving in harsh environments.” noted Tolga Latif, President and CEO of Linx Technologies. “So, we chose to expand the Linx GNSS antenna portfolio with high-temperature antennas suitable for everything from hot cars to asset tracking on a sun-baked construction site.”
