Now Shipping from Mouser: Laird’s FlexMIMO Antenna Offers Industry’s First Flexible PIFA Antenna for Wi-Fi MIMO Applications

 

August 24, 2018Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the FlexMIMO dual-band MIMO antenna from Laird, the industry’s first flexible PIFA antenna for 802.11 Wi-Fi multiple input/multiple output (MIMO) applications. The FlexMIMO includes two integrated 2.4/5 GHz dual-band antenna elements specifically designed for MIMO applications, such as automated equipment, medical devices, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

 

The Laird FlexMIMO dual-band MIMO antenna, available from Mouser Electronics, 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. Laird’s patented, flexible PIFA antenna structure allows for the use of the antenna on flat and curved surfaces, providing greater flexibility in design and excellent antenna gain and performance.

 

The FlexMIMO has low envelope correlation coefficients (ECC) performance, enabling best-in-class throughput and range performance. Designers can pair the antenna with Laird’s 60 Series Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® modules, which offer hardware designed for 802.11ac, 2×2 MU-MIMO, Bluetooth 4.2, and Bluetooth 5 on one low-power device.
