u-blox announces multi-band antenna series

The ANN-MB multi‑band active GNSS antennas, tailored specifically to the needs of applications requiring centimetre-level positioning accuracies, has been released by u-blox.

The ANN-MB antenna series has been developed in conjunction with u-blox’s F9 multi-band high precision positioning platform, and receives signals on the L1 and L2/L5 bands of all four global navigation satellite constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou).

The antenna features versatile mounting and connector options (SMA, SMB, MCX), and supports an extended temperature range (up to 105°C), adds u-blox.

Prior to the announcement of the u‑blox F9 high precision positioning platform, multi-band GNSS technology primarily targeted niche industries. “With the u‑blox F9 platform, we took a major step in bringing down the cost of ownership of high precision GNSS technology, such as our recently announced u‑blox ZED‑F9P module,” says JunJun Lu, Senior Engineer Product Management, Product Center Positioning at u‑blox.

“The ANN-MB multi-band antenna series takes this effort one step further, paving the way for new high precision positioning applications in the consumer and industrial markets.”
