Antenova's ultra-small high precision GNSS module with integrated antenna and
low power consumption
Hatfield, UK, 10th March 2023 - Antenova Ltd, the UK-based manufacturer of antennas
and RF antenna modules for M2M and the IoT, is to reveal its latest compact high
precision GNSS module at Embedded World. The new product,
is a GNSS receiver with integrated GNSS antenna and greatly reduced power consumption.
M20072 uses a MediaTek 12 nm low energy chip with 1.8V power supply which
uses 70% less power than older chipsets. The power consumption of the module can
therefore be as low as 21 mW for a GPS fitness tracker, and GNSS-enabled products
built with the M20072 will have a longer battery life.
Antenova created this ready-made receiver solution for easy integration into
a design. The module contains an integrated omni-directional GNSS antenna, on-board
LNA and a SAW filter which work together to boost the signal to the GNSS processor
if line-of-sight to the horizon is difficult.
"The M20072 is outstanding for its low energy consumption – it uses only 30%
of the power used by previous products," says Antenova's product marketing manager,
Michael Castle. "It is also very easy to use because there is no RF integration
to do, and we assist our customers with reference designs, design reviews and full
The M20072 tracks four satellite constellations simultaneously in the 1559-1609
MHz bands: GNSS, GPS, BeiDou and GLONASS. This gives greater accuracy in positioning,
and EASY and EPO are built in for a faster time to first fix (TTFF), so designs
using M20072 will perform with accuracy and speed.
At only 13.8 x 9.5 x 1.8 mm, the M20072 is ultra-small, and it requires
only a very small clearance on the PCB, making it ideal for the smallest trackers
and compact positioning devices where space on the PCB is tight. It is designed
for use in wearable electronics, small trackers, bikes and e-scooters and all battery
