SE868K7-A

Smart Antenna GPS

The tiny and mighty SE868K7-A is the industry’s smallest GPS 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 an embedded antenna significantly simplifies integration for space constrained applications by eliminating the need for external components.

Product Description

The SE868K7-A is an enhanced variant of the Telit SE868-AS GPS antenna module. This module is designed as a companion GPS variant of the multi constellation SE868K3-A series and include 9 x 9 mm patch antenna, SAW filter, ROM memory, GPS core, RTC and TCXO. The SE868K7-A uses the same compact 11 x 11 mm “cavity like” PCB package as the SE868-AS and retains its popular footprint while adding a second LNA to increase the RF sensitivity.

Form Factor Family

The SE868 compact form factor is a well established industry standard in a 11 x 11 mm, 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.
