The RAS 1575 is a GPS antenna with integrated receiver module offered in a compact enclosure measuring only 38 x 34 x 15.5 mm. The company attributes the tiny antenna size to the use of the SE 880 GPS module from Telit. Among other uses, the antenna can be applied as a retrofit solution for telematics applications in the transport and logistics sector. System integrators for large application like traffic control systems can also benefit from the unique features of the RAS 1575.

With low current consumption, the antenna is ideal for mobile applications. It is connected and fully powered via standard USB 2.0 connection. Location data is delivered by the receiver antenna in the NMEA standard. In the development of the new antenna system, Hirschmann focused on four main aspects: reception quality, flexibility of installation, robustness and compact dimensions. The RAS 1575 maximizes guaranteed GPS received power in an extremely compact and robust housing and the product can be integrated quickly, without any need for customers to engage on their own development work.

The Jupiter SE880 is Telit’s ultra-compact GPS receiver module for applications in the commercial, industrial, and consumer segments including wearable and handheld devices. The miniature 4.7 x 4.7 mm LGA (Land Grid Array), SiRFstarIV™-based receiver module employs leading 3-D SiP component embedding technology to achieve best-in-class performance in all dimensions critical for regular or size-constrained GPS applications. The SE880 receiver module was conceived to shorten time-to-market and to make the chipset-versus-module decision an easy one for you to make.

"With the cooperation between Telit and Hirschmann Solutions, the competences of two leading manufacturers in the high-frequency and module development sector perfectly complement each other", says Laurie Burns, head of the Solutions business unit at Hirschmann Car Communication. “The reception data is impressive: the time in cold start to detect the satellite signal (time to first fix) is less than 35 seconds. Sensitivity in tracking mode is -165 dBm. The positioning accuracy has a maximum error of 1.8 metres, while the recorded speed deviates by a maximum of 0.01 m/s."
