Flexi PIFA Antenna Hugs Metal Surfaces

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.

 

mFlexPIFA antenna can be placed directly onto metal surfaces without detuning the antenna.

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.
