Abracon Internal Antenna Solutions for IoT Medical Devices

Abracon has been leading the way in the demand for components required in critical medical equipment such as ventilators, clinical testing devices, and patient monitors with its wide selection of antenna solutions. More than 50 percent of electronic designs include antennas that support Wi-Fi/Bluetooth because these protocols are ideal for short range networking and device-to-device communications.

Abracon has low profile Wi-Fi/BT flexible PCB antenna solutions, such as the dual-band AFAG2220-SW2. The dual-band antenna offers a flexible structure and peel-and-stick installation that is useful for MedRec applications (tracking patient medication orders and the location of patients admitted to hospitals) as well as for remote patient monitoring applications, such as wearables & fitness trackers, glucose monitors, blood pressure monitors, and wireless pendants and wearable mHealth devices designed to send patient information to caregivers.

Abracon also has a wide Wi-Fi/BT chip antenna range. Wi-Fi/BT chip antennas serve as unique solutions for devices aimed at allowing medical professionals to wirelessly monitor patients from a safe distance. Chip antennas provide selectivity and efficiency benefits as well as less sensitivity to design changes, therefore allowing different design configurations.

The following Wi-Fi/Bluetooth chip antenna examples showcase the most compact, highest gain and lowest profile options available for industrial, scientific and medical ISM applications.


Ideal for wearable monitoring, smart medical testing devices as well as telemedicine. This antenna features the most common package size of 3.2 x 1.6 mm, while providing higher performance specifications for applications requiring higher gain, a wider operating temperature range and lower VSWR potential. The antenna supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and ISM protocols.


A compact and low-profile solution, making it ideal for ultra-compact wearables and other space-constrained medical IoT applications. This antenna also maintains a high gain and requires only a small GND clearance and GND plane. It supports the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, BLE and ISM protocols at 2.4 GHz.


A high gain antenna solution that supports ISM, Bluetooth and 2.4/5.5 GHz WiFi. It is well suited for designs that require high gain and dual-band coverage and is ideal for point-of-care testing equipment, broadband connectivity, drones and AR/VR.
