Taiyo Yuden Introduces the Industry's Smallest GPS Antenna

Schaumburg, IL - Taiyo Yuden's newest RadiEdge GPS antenna is the smallest in the industry. Measuring just 3.2 x 1.6 x 0.5mm, the AH316M157501 is approximately 87% smaller in volume and 69% shorter in height than the company's previous AF816M157502 (8.0 x 1.6 x 1.6mm) model. The lower profile EIA 1206 size antenna is designed to promote the development of smaller and slimmer GPS-ready mobile phones, smartphones and portable navigation devices (PNDs), as well as to improve the flexibility of antenna placement. The popularity of and demand for GPS functionality in mobile phones and smartphones is growing rapidly. In the case of car navigation systems, features and dimensions have been reduced to develop removable or mobile PNDs. These slimmer mobile GPS devices require equally small and slim antennas. However, because the position of the fingers and hand can interfere with radio waves and weaken reception, optimal placement of the antenna is also essential. While Taiyo Yuden's previous compact chip antenna could only be mounted to the corner of a substrate for GPS-ready devices, the smaller AH316M157501 allows for flexibility in antenna placement. The AH316M157501 is currently being produced in volume quantities. The sample price is $3.00/unit.
