Feb 17, 2009
 
Cambridge, UK, February 16, 2009 --- Antenova Ltd, the integrated antenna and RF solutions company, announced the addition of Brevis A10204 GPS SMD antenna to the gigaNOVA® range of market proven surface mount antennas. Designed for ease of integration into small wireless devices, Brevis GPS antenna is ideally suited for a wide range of embedded GPS device applications such as mobile phones, personal navigation devices (PNDs), PDAs, personal trackers/safety devices, mobile internet devices (MIDs) and plug-in accessories such as USB dongles, SDIO (Secure Digital Input Output) cards, etc. "GPS location technology continues to grow at a prolific pace, creating new device, application and market opportunities," stated Greg McCray, CEO of Antenova. "Antenova’s Brevis A10204 is a well performing small GPS antenna particularly suited for small portable and handheld devices where the device is likely to be used in various orientations. Brevis is a low profile and small footprint GPS antenna designed to work well on small boards and can be compared with the performance of a 10mmx10mm or 12mmx12mm patch antenna - but its near omni-directional characteristics enable good performance at any device orientation." Brevis A10204 is a high efficiency GPS SMD antenna which operates at 1575MHz. Brevis is a reliable, cost effective and higher performing option to larger, bulkier and more costly patch antennas, and is designed for use in all GPS applications where small size and near omni-directional characteristics enable good performance at any device orientation.” Brevis A10204 is a high efficiency GPS SMD antenna which operates at 1575MHz.
