Yageo Corporation announced the release of what it asserts is the smallest ceramic chip antenna (PIFA mode) for GPS applications. The PIFA GPS antenna is an advanced design of the 2.45 GHz PIFA antenna released last year. Although the same size, it can now reach the same efficiency on lower frequency. This antenna is designed for use in high-end handheld GPS devices. Yageo's 3216 ceramic PIFA GPS antenna features a dimension of 3.2 mm x 1.6 mm. The antenna supports central frequency of 1.575 GHz. The use of coupling and parasitic effects reduces the frequency, thus strengthening low frequency performance.
