This paper manufactured an active GPS antenna for ground vehicles and presented a method to verify the performances of the antenna and component technology of the low noise amplifier (LNA) board manufacturing. The manufactured GPS antenna is an active antenna where microstrip patch and LNA board were combined. The main performances were standing wave ratio, antenna gain, and axial ratio, and all satisfied the target specifications. The proposed component technology can be utilized as a basis data in which the performance of LNA board can be compensated in the mass production process inspection, and employed as a method to verify whether antennas are properly working in environmental tests.
