Antenova's Tiny M10578 Modules Add GPS and GNSS to Small Consumer Devices and Wearables

Antenova M2M banner

Hatfield, UK – 23rd December 2015 - Antenova Ltd, manufacturer of antennas and RF antenna modules for M2M and the Internet of Things, has just released two new modules for GPS and GNSS. Both provide an easy drop-in receiver solution – a neat way to add a location capability to very small consumer devices.

The two modules are similar, both measuring 9.0 x 9.0 x 1.8 mm, with low current consumption, making them suitable for smaller portable devices, such as smart watches, navigation devices, OBD II modules, asset tracking, personal safety, sports cameras and equipment. They are based on the popular MediaTek processor.

There are two part numbers. The M10578-A2 module operates with GPS, with a 1-5 Hz update rate, and the M10578-A3 operates with GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU and Galileo with an update rate of 1-10 Hz.

Antenova has added two features to enhance performance of the modules. There is an internal self-generated orbit prediction which uses two GNSS systems simultaneously to give a faster time to fix, and a second high quality LNA (low noise amplifier) to boost low powered satellite signals.

The new M10578 modules are the latest in Antenova's RADIONOVA series of fully optimized RF modules for wireless M2M and embedded devices. Both modules are pin compatible, offering easy integration and upgrade from GPS to GNSS, and for the antenna function, Antenova offers the small Sinica SR4G008 GNSS antenna.

The new modules are built on high grade FR4 substrates with a high density, multi-layered design that places the critical RF functions in the best position for location finding and performance.

The M10578-A2 and M10578-A3 are available to order now.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
