CEDARBURG, Wis., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LS Research, the global leader in Wireless Product Development, announces the addition of a new family of Antenna solutions to its RF Products portfolio.  These new products were designed to help its customers address critical technical challenges traditional antenna products simply cannot meet.

The flagship product of LS Research's Antenna family is the new FlexPIFA™ Antenna.  This industry-first design offers an unmatched solution for applications where traditional antennas struggle to perform.  The FlexPIFA™ Antenna with adhesive backing is designed to perform on curved surfaces, enabling simple installation and improved performance in a wide range of enclosures, such as wearable technologies.  Additionally, when placed in close proximity to the human body or metal, it can perform significantly better than other antennas currently on the market. 

"With more and more interest in the space of wearable technologies, companies looking to bring such products to market realize it's critical to have both the form factor and performance customers demand," said Bill Steinike, President of LS Research.  "The new FlexPIFA™ brings a unique solution to help ensure strong antenna performance even when placed close to the human body or in the presence of metals."

In addition to the FlexPIFA, LS Research also announces a new flexible notch antenna, called the FlexNotch™.  This solution also provides flexibility and ease in placing the antenna within confined spaces.  For custom applications, the designer can quickly test and optimize the antenna's performance by simply cutting the length of the antenna. 

The family of Antenna solutions also includes a number of traditional dipole antennas, as well as a brand-new series of waterproof dipole antennas to expand the usefulness of such products in a broader range of applications than ever before.

"Our customers have long trusted LS Research's dipole antenna solutions for their reliability and real-world performance," said Josh Bablitch, VP of RF Products.  "Our customers challenged us to bring that same performance to even broader applications, and we have done just that by introducing a series of waterproof antennas."

LS Research is a trusted source for wireless design that also provides custom antenna design services, turnkey product development, and on-site EMC certification and testing.  In 2013, LS Research also launched the Antenna Shop, providing a comprehensive approach to custom design, testing, and certification of antenna projects.  LS Research will continue to add off-the-shelf Antenna solutions to its technology portfolio, utilizing innovative design approaches to better meet customers' real-world challenges.
