SE868K3-A & SE868K3-AL

Multi-Constellation Smart Antenna GNSS

The tiny and mighty SE868K3-A/AL is the industry’s smallest multi-constellation GNSS patch antenna module. Designed with an additional low-noise amplifier (LNA) and surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter, these modules deliver best-in-class performance. The combination of advanced features and a low-profile design significantly simplifies integration for space constrained applications by eliminating the need for external components.

Product Description

The SE868K3-A/AL series is an enhanced variant of the legacy Telit SE868-A GNSS antenna module. The module series delivers a complete, multi-constellation set of GNSS receivers which include a 9 x 9 mm patch antenna, SAW filter, flash memory, GNSS core, RTC and TCXO. Easy to integrate, this 11 x 11 mm PCB package is swappable with previous generations and delivers an additional LNA, which increases the overall RF sensitivity.

Form Factor Family

The SE868 sub-compact form factor is a well established industry standard in a 11 x 11mm, 32-pad QFN package. Models in the family vary in depth dimension from 2.6 to 6.1 mm depending on presence and type of integrated antenna.
