Linx Technologies launches surface-mount embedded GNSS antenna
Linx Technologies, now part of TE Connectivity, a developer and manufacturer of antennas and connectors, expanded upon the Splatch antenna series with the release of a new surface-mount embedded global navigation satellite system (GNSS) antenna supporting GPS, Galileo, GLONAAS, Beidou and QZSS systems in the L1/E1/B1 bands.
The new linear GNSS antenna from Linx expands upon our already robust embedded PCB antenna portfolio of customer favourites like the uSP410, SP610, and the nSP250, by adding a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) solution," said Rick Stuby, VP of Product Management. "The antenna displays high performance in a compact surface-mount package, making it especially well-suited for small devices in the growing Internet of Things (IoT) market."
The ANT-GNL1-nSP antenna exhibits notable performance in a compact size (10 mm x 8 mm x 1 mm) and features linear polarisation and an omnidirectional radiation pattern.
The antenna is available in tape and reel packaging and is designed for reflow-solder mounting directly to a printed circuit board for high-volume applications.
The new GNSS antennas are available now via Linx Technologies' distributor and manufacturer representative networks.
