Product Description
GPS RADIONOVA M10300 is a flash based highly integrated GPS RF Antenna Module suitable for L1-band GPS and A-GPS systems. The device is based on the high performance MStar Poseidon IC combined with Antenovas high efficiency antenna technology designed to provide an optimal radiation pattern for GPS reception on a small, typically 40x40mm or smaller, boards. M10300 is a small compact module comprising of a surface mount RF module and a passive antenna. All the front-end components are contained in the RF module, providing a complete GPS receiver with maximum design flexibility in multiple platforms. The M10300 also includes Antenovas patented external antenna matching which allows the antenna to be optimized for a specific product without having to change the antenna or the module. M10300 supports stand alone autonomous and assisted (AGPS) operation through MStars proprietary long-term ephemeris data network, and operates on a single 3.6V positive bias supply with low power consumption and available low power modes for further power savings.

Recommended Application Schematic


The following schematic shows the recommended connection for the module for stand alone applications. Please contact Antenova for A-GPS applications.

External Antenna Matching

The values of C1, L1, and L2 must be chosen in order to match the antenna impedance (RF_OUT port) to 50W (RF_IN port). The specific values depend on the environment around the antenna (plastic case, host PCB size, large components near the antenna). PCB trace that connects C1,L1 and L2 must also be kept short as possible to RF_OUT and RF_IN pins. Gerber files showing an example layout for the matching circuit are available from Antenova. Please contact Antenova to get support on defining the optimal matching components values and PCB layout recommendations for your specific device.

Module Assembly
GPS RADIONOVA M10300 module is a compact module comprising a PCB part and an antenna part. The PCB part is suface mountable. The antenna part is assembled to the module PCB part after all reflow processes have been completed, as the antenna part is not able to withstand the temperatures experienced during the reflow process. The M10300 module is RoHS compliant and has been design for lead-free solder reflow.

Following all reflow processes of the host PCB, the antenna part of the module can be assembled by sliding the antenna and plastic carrier onto the front of the GPS module PCB. This is illustrated in the below pictures:
