Molex Unveils Wi-Fi Flexible Antenna Series for Easy Integration into Compact Devices

Molex has introduced flexible antennas for Wi-Fi,  that are designed for fast and easy integration into wireless devices with minimal implementation cost. The new 206994-series side-fed cable-flexible antenna enables high-performance RF transmission for the most demanding Wi-Fi applications, including those with space constraints.

The design constraints imposed by today's miniaturized devices are a huge challenge, but it's not simply a question of board and casing real estate. These days a smartphones and tablets can pack several radios, while using sophisticated techniques such as frequency hopping, spread-spectrum and OFDM modulation. Meanwhile the 2.4 and 5.0-GHz unlicensed bands are increasingly crowded. The demand for expertly designed and precision-manufactured antennas has never been greater.

When center-fed cable antennas do not address the needs of particular applications, side-fed cable antenna designs are required and, to answer market demand, Molex has developed two side-fed cable antenna versions: the 206994-series monopole and the 204281-series dipole-style flexible antennas. The 206994-series monopole addresses the requirements of small-size devices, while the 204281-series dipole supports applications that need fully balanced transmission and ground-plane independence regardless of cable length.

The 206994-series antenna is a highly compact Wi-Fi flexible antenna with high RF performance of >70% radiation efficiency that measures only 15.0 mm x 6.0 mm.
