Multiband GNSS antennas designed for drones and self-driving cars

16 July 2019

Taoglas has introduced a new range of high-performance global navigation satellite system (GNSS) antennas designed to power applications that require highly accurate location capabilities such as navigation, drones, surveying, agriculture and eventually autonomous vehicles.

The antennas incorporate several new form factors to help drive performance and location capabilities across a wide variety of use cases. The antennas not only add functions of the Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDou satellite systems, but also the GPS L2 or L5 bands to deliver accuracy and performance required for next-generation systems.

The range includes a GRS.10 smart antenna that includes a ceramic path antenna module integrated with a u-blox NEO-M8U GNSS receiver; the Torpedo series; the Bolt A.90, a new timing antenna that includes lightning-induced surge protection; the ASFGP ceramic GPS that has a low-profile and low-axial ratio; and the MAT.12A dueling-loop chip antenna evaluation board featuring two miniaturized low-profile chip antennas on a smaller PCB footprint.
