Laird Connectivity Simplifies the Future of Wi-Fi Design with Industry-Leading 6E Wi-Fi Antenna Solution Line


AKRON, Ohio, December 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Next-generation Wi-Fi 6E provides a foundation for faster, better performing, low-latency wireless networks at a time when demands on Wi-Fi networks explode. Laird Connectivity’s new internal 6E Wi-Fi antenna solutions affirm the company’s position as the go-to antenna partner for organizations looking to harness the power of next-generation Wi-Fi.

“Billions of smart devices depend on Wi-Fi networks for increasing bandwidth, often creating network congestion in the process. Wi-Fi 6E uses a wider portion of the wireless spectrum with the addition of the 6 GHz band, allowing engineers to design devices to take advantage of faster speeds, lower latency, and other improvements “, said Chris Boorman, senior product manager at Laird Connectivity for antenna and IoT solutions. “Our extensive 6E Wi-Fi solutions, unmatched experience and commitment to supporting our customers make us the go-to partner for companies preparing for the next generation of Wi-Fi design.”

This week, Laird Connectivity expands its family of 6E Wi-Fi antenna solutions with a flexible PIFA antenna for MIMO applications called the FlexMIMO 6E, which covers all three Wi-Fi bands, including the new Wi-Fi 6E frequencies (802.1ax standard). The FlexMIMO is based on a planar inverted F antenna structure (PIFA) consisting of two mylar antenna elements with a foam core, resulting in a flexible low profile antenna. The FlexMIMO 6E antennas support the full Wi-Fi spectrum of the frequency bands 2400-2500, 4900-5925 and 5925-7125 MHz. This makes it an ideal solution for traditional Wi-Fi frequency coverage as well as emerging new Wi-Fi 6E applications where MIMO is key.

“The Flexible MIMO is designed with the ideal orientation and spacing between the two integrated antenna elements, so it is already optimized for 2×2 radio performance without having to worry about the isolation and orientation of the antenna. ‘antenna,’ said Chris Boorman. “This allows customers to sustain their designs with a compact MIMO antenna that maximizes range and throughput up to Wi-Fi 6E. It’s the perfect addition to our industry-leading 6E Wi-Fi solution line.

Laird Connectivity also recently launched the Mini Nanolame Flex 6E and the FlexPIFA 6E:

  • Mini Nanoblade Flex 6E antennas are flexible, self-adhesive internal antennas supporting the 2400-2500, 4900-6000 and 6000-7125 MHz bands. Available with MHF1 or MHF4L connectors, they are designed for quick integration inside IoT devices with limited space.
  • The FlexPIFA 6E antennas are also designed for rapid integration into devices and enclosures with limited space. They are flexible adhesive-backed antennas with MHF1 or MHF4L connectors, providing multiple installation solutions for IoT device manufacturers. The FlexPIFA 6E antennas support the full Wi-Fi spectrum of the frequency bands 2400-2500, 4900-5925 and 5925-7125 MHz.

Laird Connectivity’s 6E Wi-Fi antenna solutions utilize PIFA topology which is not only easier to fit into small enclosures, but also resists detuning near metal, a human body, or other surfaces. PIFA technology delivers consistent performance across all three Wi-Fi bands, always ensuring a strong and reliable connection.
