The Echo 5 is a compact and active GPS embedded antenna, measuring at 13.4 x 13.4 x 8mm. This compact ceramic patch antenna is perfect for GPS applications designed to include embedded solutions that can still produce high levels of performance despite its small form factor. With its built in Low Noise Amplifier (LNA), this active GPS antenna has a slightly reduced gain of 18dB that is required in certain circumstances for GPS chipset compatibility or for simply reduced noise amplification from internal components. Common applications include: vehicle/fleet/asset tracking, mobile applications and general position services.
The Echo 5 has a centre frequency of 1575.42MHz for GPS compatibility. The built in Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) produces a gain of 18dB, working on a current of 10mA @ 2.5 - 3.5V DC.
The Echo 5 is supplied, as standard, with 100mm 1.13mm coaxial cable, terminated with an IPEX connector. Custom cable lengths and alternative connector types can be supplied for volume requirements.
