Internal GPS - SMT Loop Antennas
Taoglas have developed ceramic miniature loop antenna solutions for GPS wireless communications. The GLA Series.
The GLA.01 and GLA.02 for 1575MHz have efficiencies of between 40-90%, these loop antennas show at least three times the efficiency of traditional chip antennas. At a size of 5*3*0.5mm and 10*3.2*4mm respectively no other antenna range in the market can meet the same size and efficiency combination.
The GLA.01, at 0.5mm high is a low profile solution, it also has a small footprint size and would be suitable for devices that have space constraints.
The GLA.02 while larger than the GLA.01, does not need ground removed on the back-side of the PCB thus allowing other components to be placed there on crowded boards.
Based on the loop effect the GLA series of antennas work best when placed on the centre of the edge of the board, but can still work better than traditional linear polarized chip antennas even when placed at corners as substitute.
