Molex 211996 series 5.9GHz flexible antenna

Molex proudly presents 211996 series 5.9GHz flexible antenna

Molex 211996 Series 5.9GHz Flexible Antenna

This antenna is used for dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) technology, used for vehicles and infrastructure communications. This compact size antenna facilitates balanced dual band and produces radiation pattern that allows independent communications for vehicle directions.



  • Poly-flexible, double-sided adhesive tape on antenna
    • Enables easy peel-and-stick mounting anywhere within the device casing
  • High antenna radiation performance
    • Total efficiency values of 80% minimum (2.4 GHz band) and 70% minimum (5 GHz band)
  • Ground plane independent design
    • Reduces engineering resources and costs needed to mitigate PCB ground-induced radiation
  • Triple-band ceramic antennas enable multi-vendor operability
    • Offers greater power efficiency and long-range connectivity to Wi-Fi-certified products
  • Laser direct structuring (LDS) chip antenna technology
    • Ensures consistent antenna RF performance due to excellent laser structuring repeatability, precision and accuracy
  • SMT ceramic antennas integrate quickly and easily on center of PCB edge
    • Provides optimum performance
  • Compact rigid PCB antenna
    • Combines greater space savings with secure mounting to the device’s chassis
  • Wide selection of micro-coaxial cable lengths from 50.00 to 300.00mm
    • Extends connectivity for maximum design flexibility
  • Pick-and-place optimized
    • Delivers fast and flawless assembly
    • Designed and packaged for easy integration into modern pick-and-place manufacturing lines
  • Miniature on-ground molded interconnect device (MID) chip antenna with small footprint and small clearance zone
    • Provides PCB real estate savings on mounted side of the antenna
  • SMT ceramic antennas offer symmetrical radiator design
    • Delivers design flexibility by allowing reversed lateral placement on PCB without affecting radiation pattern or performance
