Antenova ships precision positioning antenna Raptor

first_imgAntenova is now shipping its latest positioning antenna – Raptor, which achieves an extraordinary level of accuracy in the GNSS bands – pinpointing location to within centimetres.The Raptor is an embedded antenna for all positioning applications that require a greater level of accuracy. In particular it is ideal for emerging applications with autonomous vehicles, drones and other mobile devices where its enhanced positioning capability can, for example, indicate which side of the road a vehicle is on – which has not generally been possible with previous GNSS devices.The antenna will also be useful for applications in tracking, surveying and mapping. It requires a corresponding high precision GNSS receiver module – these are also newly available on the market to connect the Raptor antenna in a complete RF system. The Raptor antenna operates in the 1200MHz and 1600MHz GNSS satellite bands and is suitable for all global public constellations: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou.  It supports the L2 1200MHz band in addition to the existing L1 and L5 bands.It is a single feed antenna in compact SMD form, measuring just 16.0 x 8.0 x 1.7mm, making this exciting antenna a practical choice for small electronic designs such as wearables and portable devices where space on the PCB may be restricted.The addition of the L2 frequency band combines multi-band satellite signal reception and GNSS correction data. This helps to mitigate position errors, greatly improving accuracy, especially in urban areas.Like Antenova’s other SMD antennas, the Raptor antenna is designed according to the company’s philosophy of Design for Integration (DFI) – meaning that the antenna has been designed to fit easily into a PCB, alongside other components. Antenova specialises in the design of SMD antennas and also provides expert integration and testing services for its customers. The Raptor antenna, part no SR4G053, is supplied in Tape and Reel.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous Key requirements for AI fairnessNext Apacer: CV110-SD and CV110-MSD cards launched worldwidelast_img read more

Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Mourinho criticised organisers of England’s top flight last season during United’s gruelling run to a victorious Europa League final, accusing them of failing to protect their clubs competing in Europe.Ahead of his side’s first Champions League game of 2017-18 against Basel on Tuesday, the former Chelsea boss again highlighted a different approach to other major leagues that he believes puts English teams at a distinct disadvantage.”The only thing I can say is that Real Madrid last year played the last month in La Liga with the second team,” he said. “They could do it and they arrived at the Champions League final with a fresh team.Toni Kroos Juventus Real Madrid Champions League“Juventus were champions in Italy three months in advance and could arrive fresh for the quarter-finals, semi-finals, final. “For English teams, normally, that’s impossible. There’s no winter break, like in other countries, although I have to admit that I love the Christmas period in English football.”Other countries protect their clubs. For example, Benfica played Friday. We always did that in Portugal and Italy. Paris Saint-Germain played Friday. That happens all the time.”But no complaining. We have a squad, if you see the players are tired then you have to play others.”Mourinho admits United are perhaps not at the level of certain elite Champions League sides given that they have only qualified for the tournament twice in the last four years.However, he says he would gladly accept a repeat of his past meetings with Basel if it meant United reached the last 16.Jose Mourinho Manchester United“I think in the Champions League there are four or five teams with an incredible level, quality, experience, know-how, and that’s what makes the difference,” he said.”We have to try to go to the last 16 and enjoy that special knockout phase with the best teams in Europe.”We’re strong, playing well and have confidence in ourselves,” says Jose. “It’s a difficult game tomorrow but we have the quality to win.”— Manchester United (@ManUtd) September 11, 2017″To be humble is to admit that the opponent has the same ambition we have, that they can come here like they did in the past and give Manchester United a bad taste.”But we go into this match thinking we can win, we go to Moscow and to Lisbon thinking we can win. We consider that we can win every match and that’s what we’re going to try.”I would perfectly accept what happened the last time I played them [in 2013]. I played and I lost the match in Basel and in London, but we qualified. For me, what matters is to qualify.”I think we are strong, playing well, with confidence in ourselves.”last_img read more
