Murata has further boosted its portfolio of state-of-the-art wireless communication modules. The company’s new LBEE5XV2EA solution employs an Infineon CYW55573 SoC. As well as supporting 2.4GHz and 5GHz operation, the module can also transmit/receive data in the 6GHz frequency band, too. Due to this, customers will not be limited to already congested areas of the RF spectrum but can profit from access to frequencies that are considerably less congested.

Complementing its 6GHz Wi-Fi 6E attributes, the solution also has Bluetooth 5.3 functionality built into it. This incorporates LE Audio, which allows enhanced audio quality to be derived while decreasing the associated power budget.

The 20/40/80MHz channels are all integrated into the module, with 1024-QAM modulation and a 2x2 MIMO antenna arrangement. Therefore, heightened levels of data throughput may be attained – reaching up to 1.2Gbps.

As the solution relies on the company's own high-performance components, it has a better optimised design than competing Wi-Fi 6E solutions from other manufacturers. This allows it to be notably smaller (having dimensions of only 12.5mm x 9.4mm x 1.2mm) and straightforward to install.

Availability of FCC/IC and TELEC certification, together with conductive tests for CE, make the standards compliance process even more straightforward. This indicates that less engineering resources need to be committed to it, with time and cost advantages being derived.

Key applications include audio/video streaming, video conference systems, plus VR and AR equipment.
