|Your answer is wrong it's not puce-antenne but antenne de la puce. You just saw puce-antenne in the text without looking at the context (ergonomie puce-antenne means l'ergonomie de la puce et de l'antenne). Please research thouroughly before giving an answer.|

Dear 'val Franc-Houge',
No need to be so aggressive.
If you don't like the Kudoz-answers given (even if only 1 reply was sent, which might indicate the rareness of a given term...), then just don't grade them and simply add a comment.
All we try to do is help out other colleagues. We do this for free (Kudoz indeed stimulates people to answer, but doesn't reward them as such), often spend quite some time in trying to find a suitable answer and we even pay for the time we're spending online (which -here in Belgium and in my case- is still +/- 3 US$ per hour).
Your 'chip antenna' can hardly be found in any dictionary, t.i. I didn't find it (and I don't have Termium), but I know what it means and even though I grasp the meaning when it's being translated as 'antenne de la puce', I wouldn't use these words. Hence my suggestion of 'puce-antenne', a term which I saw confirmed on some website pages after some research.
Sorry it didn't meet with your expectations.
And sorry I didn't 'thouroughly' research your request. Maybe you could start checking your spelling thoroughly, before blaming somebody else.
And, by the way, why do you ask for a translation when you already know the answer ?
