Application: Flexible composite substrate for wearable antenna (Patent ID: US20240088544A1)

The patent filed by Jabil Inc. describes a flexible composite substrate for a wearable antenna, consisting of a fabric sheet and a single-layer dielectric film with a dielectric resin matrix and a low dielectric loss material. The dielectric film is laminated with the fabric sheet to create the substrate, which has a dielectric constant value ranging from 2.1 to 3.1. The wearable antenna includes a conductive antenna layer and a conductive ground layer on the flexible composite substrate, with the ground layer immersed into the fabric sheet. The antenna layers are formed using functional ink and printing techniques like screen printing or inkjet printing.

The method for manufacturing the flexible composite substrate involves providing a liquid mixture of dielectric resin matrix and low dielectric loss material, forming it into a single-layer dielectric film, and laminating it with a fabric sheet. The film can be applied on a blank liner before being laminated with the fabric sheet. Alternatively, the liquid mixture can be directly coated or printed on the fabric sheet, with the film then immersed into the fabric sheet. The dielectric resin matrix includes silicone resin, while the low dielectric loss material can be polyimide, polytetrafluoroethylene, or liquid crystal polymer. Heat-curing is used to form the single-layer dielectric film.
