1. Introduction
This miniaturised GPS Active Antenna
module combines a tiny 12mm squared
ceramic patch antenna from Cirocomm
with a two stage low noise amplifier.
It is available as a ‘plug and play’ format
for onboard integration with GPS receiver
modules via ultra thin coaxial cable and
connector from IPEX.
Only 5.5mm in height, this new Taoglas
active antenna module utilises
XtremeGain™ technology for the
highest industry sensitivity.
Designed for use with the new generation
of GPS receiver modules using chipsets
from SiRF, Ublox, Nemerix, Fastrax,
Navsync, Falcom, Telit, Tyco, Siemens etc.

8. Plugs Usage Precautions
8.1 Mating / unmating
(1) To disconnect connectors, insert the
end portion of I-PEX under the connector
flanges and pull off vertically, in the direction of the connector mating axis.
Coaxial Cable
(2) To mate the connectors, the mating
axes of both connectors must be aligned
and the connectors can be mated. The
“click” will confirm fully mated connection.
Do not attempt to insert on an
extreme angle.
