Antenova Ltd rolls out its M10382 GPS RADIONOVA surface mount GPS Radio Antenna Module that utilizes the latest Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) technology in a compact low profile package. According to Antenova, the M10382 provides embedded GPS, machine-to-machine (M2M) and mobile device manufacturers the convenience of a complete GPS system solution in a compact surface mountable device with patented external matching that offers ease of tuning for each device platform.

The M10382 is a highly integrated GPS RF antenna module suitable for L1-band GPS and A-GPS systems. The device combines the u-blox 6 UBX-G6010-ST GPS receiver IC with Antenova's high efficiency GPS antenna. All front-end and receiver components are contained in a small 24.2x9.9x3.9mm surface mountable device providing a complete GPS receiver for optimum performance. M10382 operates on a single 1.8V or 3.3V positive supply with low power consumption and several low power modes for further power savings. An accurate 0.5ppm TCXO and very low noise LNA ensures high sensitivity and short time-to-first-fix (TTFF). The M10382 is supported by u-blox stand alone software and is compatible with UART, SPI, DDC, I2C and USB host processor interfaces. M10382 also benefits from Antenova's patented external matching that ensures easy tuning for each platform.
