26 5 月 2021

Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, May 26, 2021 – Ignion has announced the smallest Virtual Antenna™ ever at the Wi-Fi World Congress. Today’s NANO mXTEND™ antenna announcement further strengths Ignion’s Wi-Fi strategy to cover all possible Wi-Fi standards now and in the future.

With a size of only 3 x 2 x 0,8 mm, the NANO mXTEND™ is ideal for miniature Wi-Fi devices that require a reliable and repetitive antenna solution. “The NANO mXTEND™ is the smallest off-the-shelf antenna for Wi-Fi with a customizable performance.” remarked Dan Klaeren, Ignion’s General Manager Americas at the Wi-Fi World congress. He presented the tiny new antenna today showing the flexibility of the solution, its ultra-small size, standard nature, customizable performance, and its dual mounting system enabling either corner or edge placement on the printed circuit board.

The number of Wi-Fi connected devices is exponentially growing while the Wi-Fi community continues to produce standards, such as Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E and Wi-Fi 7, that incorporate new spectrums, improved signaling efficiency, lower latency, and reduced power consumption, along with many other objectives. Antennas play a crucial role and Ignion has presented today how the innovative Virtual Antenna™ technology can help the designer deliver any Wi-Fi device design faster, easier and with a competitive advantage built-in regardless of the size, communication standard or configuration.

Any possible antenna configuration can be achieved with a total of 3 Virtual Antenna™ standard products that cover all the possible Wi-Fi standards and challenges. From multiband configurations to MIMO designs, Ignion’s Virtual Antenna™ technology will improve the design process by focusing on the antenna from the get-go to ensure a more predictable and simpler journey. The result is shorter design cycles with reduced costs, faster times to production, and the ultimate market success for the customer.

The new NANO mXTEND™ will be available worldwide through our distributor network on June 21.
