3216 PIFA ceramic antenna

Yageo Corp. has released 3216 PIFA ceramic antenna catering to compact mobile device applications. Measuring merely 3.2mm x 1.6mm in dimension, the PIFA ceramic antenna features low profile fitting for multi-functional compact product design and superior signal transmission efficiency up to 90 per cent almost on a par with traditional metal antenna.

Yageo's 3216 PIFA ceramic antenna come 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°C to 85°C. Currently the smallest planar inverted-F antenna available in the market, the 3216 PIFA antenna is designed to be isolated from environmental interference and achieve transmission optimisation in miniaturised electronics applications particularly Bluetooth headsets, ultra slim handsets or wireless mouse.

Vincent Hu, Yageo president global sales business group, said, "To meet growing demand for multi-functional portable gadgets, our customers are constantly in search of solutions for efficient integration of functions within increasingly compact space. Statics and interference arise from a crammed circuit board has often resulted in poor transmission quality to further exacerbated the problems for product designers. Yageo's 3216 PIFA antenna represents our latest innovation to help system designers to align antenna efficiency with processors."

Moving forward, Yageo is looking to further enhance the yield and production lead time of 3216 PIFA antenna by leveraging its technology strength in manufacturing process and circuit design and expects its 3216 PIFA antenna to contribute to 40 per cent of chip antenna shipments within two years.

Samples of the 3216 PIFA ceramic antenna are available for customers with mass production underway.
