Active On-Board SMD Multi-Band GNSS Antenna, covering L1/L5 bands
The patent pending AGGBLA.125.A embedded SMD antenna is a next generation, active multi-band GNSS antenna designed to cover working constellations in the GNSS L1/L5 spectrum. The AFXP125 comes with active circuitry, so it is a plug and play alternative to customer’s design a complex active circuit themselves. The AFXP.125 multi band GNSS antenna is a compact high precision solution for navigation or asset tracking devices where board space is at a premium and cost is a major factor.
The AGGBLA.125 has an omnidirectional radiation pattern that allows customers to use an omnidirectional antenna in devices where orientation of the product may be unknown, making it less sensitive to device orientation allowing it to be installed in areas where a patch antenna won’t work. It also comes with a low noise figure to preserve signal quality helps minimize time to first fix. It also features excellent out-of-band rejection to prevent out-of-band signals from overdriving or damaging its LNAs.
Typical Applications Include:
• Precision Agriculture
• Autonomous Vehicles
• UAVs and Robotics
Based on the loop antenna electrical effect, this operates antenna best when placed in the center of the longest edge of the board, the AGGBLA.125.A is an SMD component, delivered on tape and reel. As with all on-board SMD antennas, care must be taken to ensure the device ground-plane layout and antenna matching has been done correctly.
This antenna can be mounted with no performance degradation in either orientation as long as the antenna is soldered correctly via Surface mounting. Please see the integration instructions section for further detail regarding the optimum way to integrate this antenna into your device.
