Hi,

Can I make an array of SR4G053's (i.e. Raptors) to feed a single GNSS receiver?

If so, what would the (hopefully simple) circuit look like?

Many thanks.

Hi, Raptor is not suitable for an array system, Raptor is designed for smaller devices that have limited space and that do not have the room for a large heavy ceramic patch, but still require good performance. For your request you are best advised to use a patch array design.

Perhaps I'm not explaining quite what I'm trying to achieve.

Could one attach two Raptors to a drone, one on the top and one on the bottom, such that the drone's GNSS receiver would be able to function when the drone is right side up and upside down?

Thanks.
