Chip Antennas First To Cover Entire UHF Band

Heralded as the industry's first high-performance, multilayer ceramic chip antennas to cover the entire UHF band from 470 MHz to 860 MHz, the Vitramon chip antennas comply with the MBRAI standard while maintaining small outlines of 35 mm x 5 mm x 1.2 mm for the VJ 3505 and 10.5 mm x 15.5 mm x 1.2 mm for the VJ 6040. Groomed for mobile UHF TV receivers including DVB-T, DVB-H, ISDB-T, and MediaFLO units, the devices eliminate the need for large external antennas in portable electronics. The VJ 3505 and VJ 6040 feature a 50-Ω unbalanced interface and an operating temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. Additionally, the RoHS-compliant devices are omni-directional with linear polarization and assemble onto a PC board in the standard reflow process. Reference designs and evaluation boards are available upon request. Pricing starts at $1.70 each for the VJ 6040 and $2.50 each for the VJ 3505. VISHAY INTERTECHNOLOGY, INC., Malvern, PA.
