Active Patch Antenna Module with Front End SAW Filter
The AP.17E is a one stage 17mm active patch antenna Module with Front End SAW Filter that has been designed specifically for embedded (inside device) integration with GPS/GALILEO receiver modules.The AP.17E combines a 17*17*4mm advanced low profile ceramic patch antenna with a one stage LNA and a front-end SAW filter with ultra thin coaxial cable. It comes with its own integrated ground-plane. The front end SAW filter reduces the risks where there is a cellular transmitter nearby of interference from out of band frequencies which can cause LNA burn-out, saturation, or radiated spurious emissions.
The antenna can work on a wide input voltage from 1.8V to 5.5V with best in class power consumption figures.
