Harkened as the industry’s first adhesive-backed flexible antenna designed for use directly on metal surfaces, the patented mFlexPIFA flexible antenna is about the size and thickness of a quarter. Suitable for connecting everything from household appliances and automated equipment to medical devices and innumerable other items, it is based on a Planer Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) structure comprised of a Mylar antenna element with a foam core.
Most unique, the mFlexPIFA antenna can be placed directly onto metal surfaces without detuning the antenna. Reportedly, up until now, this has been a major challenge faced by product designers and OEMs. It also can be used on concave or convex metal surfaces.
The antenna can be mounted in a wide range of embedded and external applications with metal surfaces and enclosures. It is available in a 2.4 GHz version for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Thread, and general ISM applications. It is also certified for use in selected Laird Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules. More information is available on the mFlexPIFA antenna product page.
