The FlexPIFA 2-dBi and FlexPIFA 3-dBi  antennas with MHF1/U.FL cables from Laird Connectivity are now being shipped  by Mouser Electronics.

 

These antennas are claimed to be the industry's first flexible Planar Inverted-F Antennas (PIFA) designed for Wi-Fi or Bluetooth applications mounting on non-conductive or irregular surfaces, regardless of humidity or hot/cold cycles (-40°C to +85°C).

The antennas are designed to improve performance across a broad array of environments, enclosures or even body-worn applications. The 2-dBi FlexPIFA antenna is a super-small (40.1 mm × 11 mm × 2.5 mm), single-band (2.4 GHz) device offering 2-dBi peak gain, linear polarization, and 50 W impedance, ideally suited for Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth applications.

The 3-dBi FlexPIFA antenna features dual-band (2.4/5.5 GHz) performance in a 38.5 mm × 12.7 mm × 2.5 mm form factor, with 3-dBi peak gain and 50 W impedance. This antenna is also ideal for Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth applications, as well as legacy Wi-Fi 802.11a applications.

The FlexPIFA family of antennas delivers robust performance and easy installation, making them an ideal solution for challenging Internet of Things (IoT) and harsh environment design applications.
