Antenova’s M10214 Provides Greater Location Accuracy for Lone Worker Safety Devices
Cambridge, UK, 20 July, 2009 --- Antenova Ltd, the integrated antenna and RF solutions company, announced that Connexion2, manufacturers of the award winning Identicom lone worker device, has selected Antenova’s RADIONOVA M10214 GPS RF Antenna Module for its Identicom i757 and i777 models.
“Accuracy, reliability and low power consumption are essential performance requirements for any personal safety device,” stated Greg McCray. “The high performance and quick-fix accuracy of the M10214 RF Antenna Module has enabled Connexion2 to meet customer demand to add greater location accuracy for mobile workers, particularly those constantly on the move and in higher risk jobs such as traffic wardens, district nurses, paramedics and cash in transit operatives. The small size and low profile of the M10214 vertical mount form factor has enabled Connexion2 to add GPS to the i757 and i777 models in the same thin and discreet ID card format as in their non-GPS models.”
“Antenova’s M10214 GPS RF Antenna Module is a complete GPS system solution, including all the RF and antenna in an easy to integrated compact module,” stated Craig Swallow, CEO of Connexion2. “The size, accuracy and reliable performance of the module coupled with the fact that it easily integrated into our existing design and form factor made it the ideal choice for adding GPS to our Identicom lone worker devices.”
Antenova’s GPS RADIONOVA M10214 RF Antenna Module is a complete GPS system solution in a compact, low profile form factor suitable for embedded mobile device applications. M10214 combines the SiRF GSC3LTf low power GPS receiver IC with Antenova’s high efficiency complementary antenna technology and all front-end components (e.g. low noise amplifier, SAW filters and TCXO) in a single package, fully integrated laminate base module for optimum performance. RADIONOVA M10214 operates on a single 3.6V positive bias supply with low power consumption and available low power modes for further power savings. M10214 is supported by SiRF’s GPS software suite and uses a UART/SPI host processor interface. The low profile connector and optional PCB cut-out allow the small 43x9x4mm3 single package module to be vertically mounted with a low 6mm height requirement.
