PIFA Antenna Supports Wi-Fi MIMO Applications

Laird’s FlexMIMO debuts as the industry's first flexible PIFA antenna for Wi-Fi MIMO applications. The component has two integrated 2.4-/5-GHz dual-band antenna elements designed for 802.11 MIMO applications, such as automated equipment, medical devices and a myriad of Internet of Things (IoT) use cases. FlexMIMO is based on a Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) structure, comprised of two mylar antenna elements with a foam core, resulting in a low profile, flexible antenna.


The FlexMIMO can be mounted in a wide range of applications. Laird's patented, flexible PIFA antenna structure allows it to be deployed on flat and curved surfaces, concave or convex.


Sensors Midwest Hits Rosemont, IL October 16-17!

Sensors Midwest, the industry's largest event focusing on sensors, design, and IIoT in the Midwest region, is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Co-located with STMA, the event draws over 1,000 engineers and engineering professionals that are looking for access to the latest sensor advancements and will provide an opportunity to connect with the area's greatest technology leaders and suppliers.


It sports a design that is about the size and thickness of a quarter. With an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, the 2.4/5 GHz model targets 802.11n/ac/ax applications that use MIMO or Wi-Fi Diversity. Depending on user requirements, customized versions are also available. For greater illumination, peruse the FlexMIMO PIFA antenna datasheet. Also, you can learn more about the 60 Series.
