PA6E-CAM - GPS & GLONASS antenna module with integrated patch antenna and external antenna connection

G.top's PA6E-CAM is form factor and footprint compatible with its predecessor, the PA6E, but utilizes the new generation GNSS chipset, enabling access to both GPS and GLONASS satellites.

G.top's PA6E-CAM is form factor and footprint compatible with its predecessor, the PA6E, but utilizes the new generation GNSS chipset, enabling access to both GPS and GLONASS satellites.

The PA6E-CAM is a revision of PA6E POT (Patch On Top) GPS Module with an extra embedded function for external antenna I/O with automatic antenna switching function and short circuit protection. Enabling access to both GPS and GLONASS increases the number of visible satellites, reduces the Time-To-First-Fix and increases positioning accuracy, especially for challenging urban environments.

Features:

  • MediaTek MT3333 Chipset, 33 tracking/ 99 acquisition channels dual GPS/GLONASS receiver
  • Dimensions 16 x 16 x 6.2 mm, SMD
  • Ultra-high sensitivity, -165dBm, TCXO design
  • G.top Firmware Customization Services
  • Low consumption:
    • GPS+GLONASS consumption current (@3.3V)
    • Acquisition for GPS+GLONASS: 34mA typical
    • Tracking for GPS+GLONASS: 29mA typical
  • RoHS compliant
  • DGPS (QZSS/WAAS/EGNOS/MASA/GAGAN*) 
    *GAGAN will be supported in the future.
