Cellular/GNSS passive monopole antenna
21 February 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

The compact TG.08 with hinged rotatable Fakra Code D connector is a monopole antenna for automotive telematics applications that provides wide coverage among cellular and GNSS frequencies and offers impressively high efficiencies.

Designed by Taoglas to fit in crowded device environments, the antenna’s robust brass hinge enables it to be oriented in all directions, allowing users to maximise performance with minimum effort. The Fakra connector gives additional mechanical robustness over a traditional SMA connector since it locks securely with its mate and will not come loose due to vibrations or impacts.

This 72 mm long monopole antenna has good efficiency in the 700 MHz to 2700 MHz range, covering the 2G/3G/4G bands, as well as GPS/GLONASS/BEIDOU. When connected to a ground plane, it can achieve up to 75% efficiency at GPS and LTE bands.

With its cellular and GNSS function, plus compact design, the TG.08 is well suited for routers, vehicle tracking devices, telematics devices and remote monitoring systems. It is also ideal for use in cellular modules with Assisted GPS functionality that can be implemented in various devices.

As with all monopole antennas, it works best when connecting directly to the ground plane of the device main-board or to the device’s metal enclosure. For optimum radiation efficiency care should be taken to keep the radiating element of the antenna as far away from metal as possible.
