Parsec’s PTA1.5 antennas are a family of GNSS/GPS L1 high radiated efficiency passive antennas. The PTA1.5 family integrates easily with industry leading GNSS/GPS 3D-SIP and system on chip (SoC) receivers with only a single direct connection typically required and is compatible with any GNSS receiver operating from 1560 to 1610 MHz. Ideal for embedded LBS receivers requiring good user experience that operate within 5 to 7 mm of the human body, indoors in the presence of mulipath, and in applications with obstructed view of orbiting satellites. Patents pending.
