Airgain Introduces 6GHz Wi-Fi Embedded Antenna Solutions

Sponsored by Businesswire

), a leading provider of advanced antenna technologies used to
enable high performance wireless networking across a broad range of
devices and markets, including consumer, enterprise, and automotive,
today announced the release of the Profile X6 series of embedded
antennas providing full support for the new 6GHz (5.9-7.125GHz) ISM
band spectrum. These new antennas will help Wi-Fi system designers adapt
to future technological changes, enabling a more seamless transition to
6GHz support once the new spectrum becomes available for Wi-Fi.

In October 2018, the FCC voted to allocate up to 1.2GHz of mid-band 6GHz
Wi-Fi spectrum for next generation Wi-Fi systems. Following the Notice
of Proposed Rule Making released in late 2018 by the FCC, the spectrum
may be made available as early as late 2019. The 6GHz spectrum will be
supported only with the latest Wi-Fi technology, namely Wi-Fi 6
(802.11ax). Wi-Fi system designers including carriers and OEMs are deep
into device design refresh cycles based on Wi-Fi 6; however, since 6GHz
is not ready they have to decide to wait and risk being late to market,
or to proceed without 6GHz and face another design refresh cycle later.

“Our Wi-Fi 6 ready, 6GHz embedded antenna solutions enable Wi-Fi system
designers to build their Wi-Fi 6 systems with antenna support for both
5GHz and 6GHz from day one. This creates potential for a future upgrade
to 6GHz, when utilizing radio hardware that is upgradeable to support
6GHz, avoiding a new ground-up 6GHz design once the 6GHz Wi-Fi spectrum
becomes available,” said Callum Noon, Senior Director, Product
Management and Marketing at Airgain. “Our Profile X6 series antenna also
includes patent pending technology that increases the isolation between
existing 5GHz Wi-Fi spectrum and the new 6GHz Wi-Fi spectrum, enabling
the two bands to co-exist in the same device with maximum throughput

Airgain’s embedded antenna family now features two designs that support
6GHz Wi-Fi system design, including the new X6 series and the existing
Q6 series antennas:

  • Profile Embedded X6 Series Antenna (New)

    • Immediate availability of 6GHz Wi-Fi antennas, providing reference
      design support and support for the development of future proof
      Wi-Fi 6 devices.
    • Improves inter-antenna isolation between existing 5GHz and new
      6GHz Wi-Fi for higher modulation and MIMO operation.
    • Allows smaller device size.
    • Provides increased flexibility in choosing antenna locations.
  • Profile Embedded Q6 Series Antenna

    • Immediate availability of embedded antennas for new 6GHz
      (5.9-7.125GHz) WiFi spectrum in various
      configurations including dual band and support for existing 5GHz
      unlicensed band.
    • Features Airgain’s ‘Double Infinite Balun’ technology included in
      the Q Series antenna range.
    • Antennas are available in different combinations of bands based on
      the selected radio architecture, such as single 6GHz band, dual
      band and tri-band options.

Airgain’s latest innovations, including the new Profile family of
antennas for 6GHz Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, will be on display during Computex
2019, held May 28 through June 1, in Taipei, Taiwan. Contact Airgain at to
request a meeting to discuss our new technology offerings.
