Overview

The Laird Connectivity Mini NanoBlade Flex and Flex 6E Antennas now include models supporting the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard. This new tri-band standard covers 2400-2500, 4900-5925, and 5925–7125 MHz to support the highest data rates possible.

With flexible printed circuit board type peel-and-stick technology, these antennas are specifically designed to be embedded inside devices by adhering the antenna to a device housing for aesthetically pleasing integration and reliable performance.

FAQ

Are Laird Connectivity's antennas UL certified?

Laird, generally speaking, does not submit antennas for burn testing so as to be UL certified.  That said, we do use UL-94/V0 compliant materials for specific parts such as a radome.  These parts are identified on the antenna's datasheet.

When do you want to use a FlexPIFA over Flex PCB antenna?

In a cluttered propagating environment, such as a medical suite, office, etc. where there are many metal obstructions.
As a propagating signal encounters an obstruction, the antenna's polarization sense changes and will continue to change as each obstruction is encountered.
The FlexPIFA antenna mitigates this polarization sense issue by providing energy in both vertical and horizontal polarization; thereby, increasing the probability of picking up a useable signal.

What is dBd and dBi and how do you convert from dBd to dBi?

    
dBd is a unit of measure for gain using a dipole as a reference; whereas, dBi uses an isotropic radiator.  To convert from dBd to dBi simply add 2.15 to the dBd value to get the dBi value (e.g. 0 dBd= 2.15 dBi)
