Utilizing Vishay”s materials and manufacturing technologies, the new Vitramon chip antennas comply with the MBRAI standard for portable communication while maintaining small outlines of 35 mm x 5 mm x 1.2 mm (VJ5301M868MXBSR and VJ5301M915MXBSR) and 15.5 mm x 10.5 mm x 1.2 mm (VJ5601M868MXBSR and VJ5601M915MXBSR). The devices feature 50 Ω unbalanced tuning interfaces and wide operating temperature ranges from – 40 °C to + 85 °C.
The chip antennas are optimised for medical telemetry and instrumentation, industrial automation, security and home automation systems, gas and water meters, remote sensing and control, and long-range RFID. In these applications, the devices help to lower costs by eliminating the need for large external wipe antennas.
Manufactured in noble metal electrode technology (NME) with a wet build process, the VJ5301M868MXBSR, VJ5301M915MXBSR, VJ5601M868MXBSR, and VJ5601M915MXBSR are able to offer a high-reliability, ceramic-oxide body construction. The RoHS-compliant chip antennas are halogen-free per IEC 61249-2-21 and designed to be assembled onto a PC board using a standard reflow process.
