Flexible antennas provide application flexibility
15 November 2017, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless

The FlexPIFA from LSR is an industry-first flexible planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA). The 2,4 GHz antenna is ideally suited for use with 2,4 GHz applications such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth, and is ideal for Wi-Fi applications across both bands, such as 802.11 'a'. Both the 2,4 GHz and dual-band 2,4/5,5 GHz FlexPIFA deliver strong performance in challenging environments, providing flexibility to solve real-world antenna design challenges.

The PIFA design provides consistent performance across a broad array of environments and enclosures - plastic, metal or even body-worn applications. With the ability to be flexed in either concave or convex directions, without sacrificing antenna performance, the small size and adhesive backing give further mounting flexibility within a product design.
