Embedded GPS L1 / L2 Dual Pin Stacked Passive Patch Antenna
The Taoglas GPDF357A is a precision-engineered embedded GPS stacked passive patch antenna supporting both GPS L1/Galileo E1 and L2 bands. It consists of two patches stacked with two pin feeds (one for each patch), the bottom patch is 35*35*4mm and the top patch is 25*25*3mm – making the overall dimensions just 35*35*7mm. The antenna has been tuned and tested on a 70*70mm specifically for GPS L1/Galileo E1: 1575.42MHz and GPS L2:1227.6MHz.
Both patch elements have a dual pin feed to ensure a low axial ratio and should be used in conjunction with a hybrid coupler. The antenna exhibits excellent gain and good radiation pattern stability leading to a reliable GNSS fix in areas of weaker signal strength. All these elements combined ensure the best possible positional accuracy for your device.
Typical applications include:
• High accuracy positioning and navigation systems
• UAVs, Robotics & Autonomous Vehicles
• Mapping & GIS
• Transportation & Telematics
• Precision Agriculture
• Public Safety, Search & Rescue
• RTK Systems
The GPDF357A is manufactured and tested in a TS16949 first tier automotive approved facility.
This patch can also be purchased in a version tuned specifically for Free Space, GPDF357B. Patch antennas can also be tuned to customer-specific device environments, subject to NRE and MOQ.
