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.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


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.
