Now Available: Our FlexMIMO 6E Antennas!

A Capable Antenna for the Future of Wi-Fi

Now available, our latest entry into 2x2 MIMO internal antennas is the FlexMIMO 6E! An addition to our previous range of FlexMIMO antennas, this latest antenna includes support for all three wireless bands that comprise the spectrum of Wi-Fi 6E: 2400-2500 MHz, 4900-5925 MHz, and 5925-7125 MHz.

In our ongoing series on Wi-Fi 6 and 6E, we’ve talked about the roadmap and gradual emergence of the complete capabilities of Wi-Fi 6. The FlexMIMO 6E is an excellent choice for your internal antenna needs, as it’s feature-ready for the extensive Wi-Fi 6E band as it becomes available. Suitable for Wi-Fi 4, 5, and 6 applications, the FlexMIMO 6E represents an upgrade path for legacy Wi-Fi designs as Wi-Fi 6 becomes more commonplace and supports the full 5925-7125 MHz band.

What is a PIFA?

The FlexMIMO 6E is a flexible, MIMO-capable Planar Inverted F Antenna (PIFA). What makes a PIFA so unique is its internal ground plane, which makes it much more resilient to interference from the enclosure within which it is mounted. PIFA antennas are easy to integrate, even on surfaces with a convex or concave curvature, and our PIFA antennas are adhesive-backed to make them extremely easy to mount.

The FlexMIMO antennas patented design aligns two PIFA antennas in a carefully-calibrated orientation that provides superior connectivity in an incredibly space-constrained form factor. This means it’s trivially easy to integrate 2x2 MIMO into your embedded design with the confidence that your antennas do not interfere with each other and resist detuning from nearby components and enclosure materials. As so much of the future of Wi-Fi includes leveraging features like MIMO for exceptional throughput, beamforming, and other optimizations, the FlexMIMO 6E is the simplest and most effective way to bring the performance of Wi-Fi 6 to your embedded wireless devices.

About the FlexMIMO 6E

The FlexMIMO 6E antennas are available with either MHF1 or MHF4L connectors, to provide flexible connectivity options to your designs. They’re also well-documented, with comprehensive data sheets and hands-on technical support available to help with product selection and design integration. And they pack all of this top-tier connectivity into a compact 39.5 x 39.5 x 4.7 mm form factor.
