PX1N - GLONASS & GPS Interface

PCI Express Mini Card

The PX1N is a PCI Express Mini Card providing a GNSS receiver with GLONASS and GPS functionality and can be used in 19" systems, box PCs and display computers. It supports active or passive antennas, which can be connected to an U.FL connector. The received antenna signals are sent to the host via USB.
