Antenova announced what it claims to be the world's smallest single-package GPS system solution, combining an integrated-circuit (IC) receiver with a patented GPS antenna. The GPS RADIOVA M10214-A RF antenna module features the model GSC3LTf GPS receiver IC from SiRF Technology and Antenova's own high-efficiency single-feed GPS antenna technology. The module includes all necessary front-end components, such as the low-noise amplifier (LNA), surface-acoustic-wave (SAW) filters, and temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) in a package measuring 43 x 9 x 4 mm. It operates on a single +3.6-VDC supply.
