Ultra-thin antenna with GPS and 3G functionality

March 30, 2011 // By Julien Happich
The W4150GG5000 antenna can be installed with either side facing up so only one antenna is required, whether mounting on the windshield or dashboard, to make installation simple. It receives location information from a GPS satellite and uses the cellular network to transfer this location information to a central control center or third party.

The antenna assists in vehicle and asset tracking and location, navigation, emergency call systems, fleet tracking, insurance tracking, and pay-as-you-go transport systems. Pulse Electronics' GPS/3G antenna comes in a small elliptical package measuring 100x50mm with a height of only 8mm.

It combines a Pulse Electronics GPS ceramic chip antenna, a low noise amplifier, and 3G antenna functions resulting in a thinner profile than standard GPS and 3G band antennas while still maintaining an excellent level of performance.

The 3G antenna is suitable for global operation providing coverage at frequencies of 824-960/1710-2170 MHz with a gain of 2/4 dBi and a radiated efficiency of up to 70%. The GPS operates at 1575.42 MHz frequency with a gain of 26 dBi max. The antenna can be installed with either side facing up. It comes with RG-174 cable in a variety of lengths and SMA male connectors.
