DESCRIPTION
• Wide operating temperature range (- 40 °C to + 85 °C)
• Material categorization: For definitions of compliance
please see www.vishay.com/doc?99912
Note
(1) See figures 1 through 6 for more details on the radiation pattern
(antenna gain) at 868 MHz; the PCB board ground is shorted to
earth ground for tuning.
The VJ5301M868MXBSR ceramic chip antenna is a small
form-factor, high-performance, chip-antenna designed for
operation at 868 MHz. It allows manufacturers to design
high quality products that do not bear the penalty of a large
external antenna, and is designed to be assembled onto a
PC board using a standard reflow process.
APPLICATIONS
The VJ5301M868 is the latest in a family of products
developed by Vishay, a world leader in manufacturing of
discrete and passive components.
• Long range RFID
The VJ5301M868 series are small form-factor,
high-performance chip-antennas optimized for medical,
remote sensing, industrial, security, and RFID applications.
Operating temperature: - 40 °C to + 85 °C
Utilizing unique Vishay materials and manufacturing
technologies, these products when properly tuned also
comply with the MBRAI standard for portable
communication.
• Medical telemetry (internal/external)

FOOTPRINT, MECHANICAL AND PCB DIMENSIONS
The antenna footprint and mechanical dimensions are
presented in Figure 7. Optimal tuning is adjusted according
to PCB layout.
For additional mechanical support, it is recommended to
add one drop of heat curing epoxy glue.
• The glue dot should not overlap with any of the soldering
pads
• Apply the glue dot at the center of the antenna.
• The glue dot area secures the chip firmly to the PCB

VJ5301M868 ASSEMBLY GUIDELINES
1. Mounting of antennas on a printed circuit board should
be done by reflow soldering using the profiles shown
(Figures 8, 9, and 10)
2. In order to provide the adequate strength between the
antenna and the PCB apply of a dot of heat cured epoxy
glue in the center of the footprint of the antenna prior to
soldering the antenna to the board. An example for such
glue is Heraeus PD 860002 SA. The weight of the dot
should be 5 mg to 10 mg.
