GPS/GNSS Smart Antenna Modules

Locosys GPS/GNSS Smart Antenna Modules provide critical positioning capabilities to military, civil, and commercial users around the world. The GPS/GNSS is freely accessible to anyone with a GPS receiver. APC provides high quality GPS/GNSS Smart Antenna modules, ideal for design engineers who prefer to develop their own products. The modules provided by APC are proved to have high reception in urban areas.

LS2008x-BV2/3

The Locosys LS2008x-BV2/3 is the latest development in GPS/GNSS smart antennas that work with dual-frequency GNSS: L1/L5 for GPS, Galileo and QZSS, L1 for GLONASS and BeiDou and L5 for IRNSS.

LS2008x-BVx increases the number of satellites involved in tracking and positioning and efficiently reduces multipath effect while used in urban environments. In addition, the modules shorten the acquiring time of signals and enhance the positioning accuracy, with built-in LNA and SAW filters ensuring the positioning performance under the harsh environment like weak reception.

Modules are equipped with advanced low-power management to reach the level of low-power and the positioning accuracy within 1-meter (static). An ideal solution for applications in power-sensitive or battery-powered systems.

LS2003C-2RE

LS2003C-2RE is a complete standalone GPS smart antenna module, including embedded patch antenna and GPS receiver circuits. The module ‘s functionality is using MediaTek lateast GPS, MT3337E, ROM chip and it can acquire a lot of satellites at a time while providing fast time-to-first-fix and low power consumption. Besides, it can provide you with superior sensitivity and performance even in urban canyon and dense foliage environment. This module supports self-generate orbit prediction, EASYTM, to achieve faster cold start and warm start. The EASYTM is no need of both network assistance and host CPU’s intervention. The prediction is valid for up to 3 days and updates automatically from time to time when GPS module is powered on and satellites are available. It is easy to install without both RF connector and coaxial cable that are needed in a separated GPS active antenna. In other words, reduce the cost and size. Also, speed up the time to market by eliminating R&D efforts on RF matching and stability between separated GPS antenna and module. Furthermore, it can be directly powered by a lithium battery without any external voltage regulators. Therefore, LS2003C-2RE of miniature size and brilliant performance is the best choice to be integrated into your slim devices.

LS2003C-G

LS2003C-G is a complete standalone GNSS smart antenna module, including embedded patch antenna and GNSS receiver circuits. The module can simultaneously acquire and track multiple satellite constellations that include GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, QZSS and SBAS. It features low power and small form factor. Besides, it can provide you with superior sensitivity and performance even in urban canyon and dense foliage environment.

This module supports hybrid ephemeris prediction to achieve faster cold start. One is self-generated ephemeris prediction (called EASY) that is no need of both network assistance and host CPU’s intervention. This is valid for up to 3 days and updates automatically from time to time when GNSS module is powered on and satellites are available.

It is easy to install without both RF connector and coaxial cable that are needed in a separated GNSS active antenna. In other words, reduce the cost and size. Also, speed up the time to market by eliminating R&D efforts on RF matching and stability between separated GNSS antenna and module. Furthermore, it can be directly powered by a lithium battery without any external voltage regulars. Therefore, LS2003C-G of miniature size and brilliant performance is the best choice to be integrated into your slim devices.
