TE Connectivity Introduces Wi-Fi 6E Antennas for 2.4/5/6 GHz Bands

TE Connectivity, a world leader in innovative connectivity solutions for high-speed computing and networking applications, has launched new Wi-Fi 6E antenna solutions that support tri band operation, including the new 6 GHz band. TE’s antenna solutions and integration help to better utilize the power of extensive additional spectrum from Wi-Fi 6E which provides greater network flexibility and faster speeds with reduced latency in new end devices and applications.

The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz are currently widely used Wi-Fi frequency bands. With the increasing use of connected devices, these existing Wi-Fi bands have become congested. The new 6 GHz band can provide the additional bandwidth and wider channels commonly needed. TE's new antennas for Wi-Fi 6E applications cover three bands: 2400-2483.5 MHz, 5150-5875 MHz and 5925-7125 MHz. Accommodating 14 additional 80 MHz channels or seven additional 160 MHz channels, the new 6 GHz band brings a wider range of available channels that can offer an extensive contiguous clean spectrum for WLAN (Wireless Local Area Networks) communication. The new portfolio has antenna products available on PCB, cabled PCB and cabled FPC. Multiple wireless standards are supported and they are customizable in cable length and connector types, which can have quick time-to-market and offer system design flexibility. TE's RF competence centers support the creation of efficient Wi-Fi 6E MIMO antenna configurations and optimization of throughput.

Han Sang Cheol, product manager at TE's Data and Devices business unit, commented that wireless networks have impacted our lives in many ways: enabling mobility at home and at work and enabling new solutions in safety; smart homes, cities and factories; medical and health devices; and a wide range of emerging IoT devices. TE's antenna design and integration competence can enable optimal performance and throughput, making the next generation of applications and experiences possible with the reduced congestion, faster speeds and lower latency enabled by Wi-Fi 6E's added spectrum and larger channel bandwidth.
