WiFi 6E Chip Manufacturers | WiFi 6E SoC Vendors

This page mentions WiFi 6E chip manufacturers or WiFi 6E SoC vendors. The popular manufacturers of Wi-Fi 6E chip are Broadcomm, Qualcomm, Intel etc.

What is WiFi 6E ?

The WiFi 6E extends operation of wifi 6 chips based on IEEE 802.11ax into 6 GHz frequency band. The new chipset offers low latency, high throughput and higher capacity due to more number of channels in 160 MHz bandwidth.

WiFi 6E technology adds up to 1200 MHz of extra spectrum in the existing wifi 6 spectrum. It supports additional seven non-overlapping channels of 160 MHz in 6 GHz band.

WiFi 6E

WiFi 6E supports different number of channels in various bands for different bandwidths as shown in the figure.

2.4 GHz band : 3 channels (20 MHz), 1 channel (40 MHz), Span : From 2400 to 2483.5 MHz
5 GHz band : 25 channels (20 MHz), 12 channels (40 MHz), 6 channels (80 MHz), 2 channels (160 MHz), Span : From 5150 to 5850 MHz
6 GHz band : 59 channels (20 MHz), 29 channels (40 MHz), 14 channels (80 MHz), 7 channels (160 MHz), Span : From 5925 to 7125 MHz
