SMD On-Ground Antennas

Molex 2.4 GHz SMD On-Ground Antenna as the smallest on-ground MID (Molded Interconnect Device) antenna in the market using the power and precision of Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) technology. Measuring only 3.00mm by 3.00mm by 4.00mm (0.118" by 0.118" by 0.157") and mated on one side of the PCB , the Molex 2.4 GHz SMD On-Ground Antenna enables designers to realize significant PCB real estate savings by leaving the ground layers in the PCB intact while freeing up space on the reverse side for other component assemblies. Featuring an omni-directional radiation pattern, this monopole antenna requires simple stripline matching on the PCB without the need for discrete components. Fully compatible with SMD and reflow processes, the Molex 2.4 GHz SMD On-Ground Antenna can be used as a stand-alone device without the need for cable connection. In addition to offering excellent thermal properties, the LCP body of the antenna provides a higher mechanical strain tolerance than ceramic antennas. Weighing 0.03g, the 2.4 GHz SMD On-Ground Antenna is ideally suited for portable electronic devices based on Bluetooth ®, Wi-Fi ® ZIGBEE ® and other wireless standards.
