FlexPIFA Antennas

The FlexPIFA™ (patent pending) is an industry-first flexible Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA). The 2.4 GHz FlexPIFA™ is ideally suited for use with 2.4 GHz applications such as, Wi-Fi® 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth. The dual-band FlexPIFA™ is ideal for Wi-Fi applications across both bands, such as 802.11 'a'. Both the 2.4 GHz and dual-band 2.4/5.5 GHz FlexPIFA™ deliver strong performance in challenging environments, providing you unmatched flexibility to solve your real-world antenna design challenges. The PIFA design provides consistent performance across a broad array of environments & enclosures - plastic, metal, or even body-worn applications. With the ability to be flexed in either concave or convex directions, without sacrificing antenna performance, the small size and adhesive backing give further mounting flexibility within your product design.

Transcript

FlexNotch Antenna

FlexNotch is the only adhesive-backed, flexible notch antenna that can be easily custom-trimmed for maximum range within your spe- cific enclosure. Paired with the antenna design expertise offered by LSR, FlexNotch provides a simple, repeatable process for optimizing antenna tuning to deliver maximum range for your application.

  • With FlexNotch, tuning for your specific application is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
  1. Request a Design Review and provide LSR with an enclosure sample
  2. LSR’s Antenna Design experts use 3D modeling and lab testing to determine optimal antenna length for maximum range
  3. Built-in cut lines simplify the production process to consistently adapt antennas for best gain & range
    OR Order pre-trimmed from LSR (MOQ requirements apply)
  • Ability to be flexed in either concave or convex directions without sacrificing antenna performance
  • Small size and adhesive-backing give further mounting flexibility within your product design
