Global electronic components distributor Heilind Electronics, has expanded its wireless local area network (WLAN) product offering with the addition of TE Connectivity’s new antenna product portfolio for Wi-Fi 6E. These antennas can support triple bands, including 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and the new 6 GHz band.
With the increasing use of connected devices, there has been growing demand on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi frequency bands, causing congestion. The new 6 GHz band provides additional bandwidth and wider channels commonly needed to make connectivity more reliable. TE’s new antennas for Wi-Fi 6E add 1200 MHz of frequency spectrum at the new 6 GHz band, accommodating 14 additional 80 MHz channels or seven additional 160 MHz channels. This results in greater network flexibility, faster speeds and reduced latency in end devices and applications.
The 6 GHz band also brings a wider range of available channels with an extensive and contiguous clean spectrum for WLAN communication. TE’s portfolio offers system design flexibility and quicker time-to-market with multiple product options, including on-board and cabled versions available in printed circuit board and flexible printed circuit materials. Customers can also customize cable length, connector types and MIMO (Multi-Input Multi-Output) arrays.
These robust antennas are ideal for access points/gateways/routers, building safety and security, smart cities and homes, smart medical and health devices, WLAN and internet of things devices, and Wi-Fi hotspots.
