Compact GPS Module Integrated with Patch Antenna

80-R is an ultra compact GPS POT (Patch on Top) module with an embedded 15.0mm × 15.0mm × 4.0mm patch antenna. This space-saving design makes L80-R the perfect module for the miniature devices. Adopted by LCC package and integrated with patch antenna, L80-R has exceptional performance both in acquisition and tracking.

Combining advanced AGPS called EASY™ (Embedded Assist System) technology, L80-R achieves the highest performance and fully meets the industrial standard. EASY™ technology ensures L80-R can calculate and predict orbits automatically using the ephemeris data (up to 3 days) stored in internal RAM memory, so L80-R can fix position quickly even at indoor signal levels with low power consumption.

With its compact design, high precision and sensitivity, L80-R is perfectly suitable for a broad range of M2M applications such as portable device, automotive, personal tracking, security and industrial PDA, especially suitable for special applications, like GPS mouse and OBD.
