FlexMIMO has two integrated 2.4/5 GHz dual-band antenna elements that have been designed for MIMO applications.
The antenna is based on a Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) structure and has two mylar antenna elements with a foam core, which results in a low-profile, flexible antenna. Laird’s PIFA antenna structure lets the antenna be used on flat and curved surfaces, giving greater design flexibility without affecting performance.
FlexMIMO has low envelope correlation coefficients (ECC) performance, enabling high 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.
