Yageo has announced 3216 PIFA ceramic antenna catering to compact mobile device applications. Measuring 3.2mm x 1.6mm (3216) in dimension, Yageo's PIFA ceramic antenna features low profile fitting for multifunctional compact product design and signal transmission efficiency up to 90% almost on a par with traditional metal antenna.
The 3216 PIFA ceramic antenna comes with an omni-directional system that supports central frequency of 2.45GHz with a maximum gain of 2.84dBi and a working temperature of -25 degrees C to 85 degrees C. Yageo claimed this new product is currently the smallest planar inverted-F antenna available in the market, and is designed to be isolated from environmental interference and achieve transmission optimization in miniaturized electronics applications particularly Bluetooth headsets, ultra-thin handsets or wireless mouse. Samples are available for customers with mass production underway.
Yageo is looking to further enhance the yield and production lead time of 3216 PIFA antenna, and expects this product to contribute to 40% of chip antenna shipments within two years.
