FlexPIFA Flexible Adhesive-Backed PIFA Antennas

Overview

Laird's FlexPIFA™  antennas (patented) are the industry's first flexible Planar Inverted-F Antennas (PIFA).  The 2.4 GHz FlexPIFA™ is ideally suited for use with 2.4 GHz applications such as, Wi-Fi® 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth. The dual-band FlexPIFA™ 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 you unmatched flexibility to solve your real-world antenna design challenges. The PIFA design provides consistent performance across a broad array of environments, enclosures, 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 your product design.
