SMD antenna pinpoints locations within centimetres
Antenova Ltd has developed a new SMD positioning antenna that achieves an extraordinary level of accuracy in the GNSS bands, it can pinpoint a location to within centimetres.

The Raptor antenna uses the L2, 1200 MHz satellite bands which recently became available for civilian use. It is the latest addition to Antenova’s lamiiANT range of rigid FR4 antennas designed for easy insertion onto a PCB. The antenna itself is very small – it is a GPS single feed antenna in SMD form, measuring just 16.0- x 8.0- x 1.6-mm, which makes it suitable for small PCBs within all kinds of small electronic devices. The L2 frequency band combines multi-band satellite signal reception and GNSS correction data. This helps to mitigate position errors, greatly improving accuracy, especially in urban areas.
