Taoglas to launch AA.16X Dominator series of antennas for M2M market

Telecom Lead America: Taoglas USA, a provider of antenna
solutions to the M2M market, is launching the AA.16X Dominator series of

These new antennas have a wider bandwidth to cover the
GLONASS operating frequencies up to 1610 MHz, a good axial ratio and a double
resonance design for optimum reception at the centre frequencies.

Taoglas will showcase these antennas at CTIA from May
8-10 2012.

Taoglas also announced that it is leading the market with
a range of GPS and GLONASS-enabled antennas for M2M devices.

The AA.161 Dominator is a magnetic mount GPS-GLONASS
IP67, external antenna incorporating a 35mm ceramic patch. It is a wide-band
active patch antenna product with a large integral ground that delivers a gain
up to 35dB.

Taoglas claims that Taoglas is the first company to have
a range of GPS-GLONASS active embedded antennas (AGGP series) and passive
embedded (CGGP) antennas. They are the choice for automotive first tier TS16949
and after-market applications.

In the coming months, for the first time the true
availability of GPS and GLONASS satellites along with the latest generation of
GNSS receivers are going to dramatically change the performance of M2M location
devices. With close to double the amount of satellites to draw from compared to
a stand-alone GPS constellation, we are now going to see quicker time to first
fixes with accuracy improving from meters to sub one meter,” said Ronan
Quinlan, director Taoglas.

Taoglas’ GPS antennas are being used in the field by many
different M2M solution providers including tracking, telematics and GPS
manufacturers. All three Dominator antenna series are available for purchase
online at Digikey and Mouser or directly from Taoglas.
