RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Sangshin Elecom’s KSA series of Globalstar patch antennas. The KSA-LCSP1621MS25 is designed specifically for Globalstar (1611.25 to 1618.75 Mhz) applications. This left hand circularly polarized (LHCP) antenna is tuned / tested for operation at 1621 MHz (5 MHz above the GlobalStar band) to accommodate frequency shifts that may occur in a radome.
The KSA-LCSP1621MS25 offers 4dBi of peak gain and is available in a 25mm x 25mm x 4mm package.
The KSA-LCSP1621MS25 provides optimal gain, stability, and sensitivity through the use of high performance proprietary ceramic material. Peel and stick adhesive is optional for PCB mounting during assembly. Sangshin’s antenna optimization services provide guidance on customer board and ground plane designs resulting in PCBs tuned for optimal performance. Sangshin’s patch antenna lineup also includes a wide range of sizes and options geared towards the L1 and L2 frequencies. Turnaround time for customer specific prototypes is approximately 4 weeks.
