Today Laird announced the industry’s first flexible, adhesive-backed PIFA antenna specifically optimized for installation on metal surfaces. The mFlexPIFA™ can be placed directly on curved or straight metal objects and provides the best possible antenna gain and performance in a wide range of enclosures.
The mFlexPIFA joins Laird’s family of […]
When designing an RF system that operates at a high frequency such as the 5 GHz band, it is necessary to take parasitic effects into consideration. It is important to understand from where the parasitic effects are coming. When designing the PCB layout, you must consider landing pad size in order to reduce junction effects, […]
Earlier this year, Laird published its most popular white paper to date, RF Design Considerations, which helps readers understand the complexities regarding RF design.When developing a wireless product, RF hardware design is complex and oftentimes a challenge. Many factors must be considered. For example, parasitic effects that are not typically a concern in low frequencies […]

Establishing a reliable Wi-Fi connection in sports arenas, airports, and other large venues has traditionally proven to be a challenge. This is due in part to the limits placed on the 5 GHz operating band by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). However in a recent press release, Continue Reading →
The FCC recently made a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) regarding its announcement to free up unlicensed spectra to be used for a variety of technologies, most notably, Wi-Fi. (This topic is discussed in previous blog posts here and here.) The NPRM discussion is broken down into two sections, (1) The Current […]
