TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced a new antenna product portfolio for Wi-Fi 6E that supports triple bands, including the new 6 GHz band.

With both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz currently widely used as Wi-Fi frequency bands the increasing use of connected devices means that these existing Wi-Fi bands have become congested.

The new 6 GHz band can provide the additional bandwidth and wider channels commonly needed and TE’s new antennas for Wi-Fi 6E applications cover triple 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.

This new portfolio has antenna products available on PCB, cabled PCB and cabled FPC. Multiple wireless standards are supported and they are customisable in cable length and connector types, which can have quick time-to-market and offer system design flexibility.
