LG Innotek develops industry's first automotive Wi-Fi 6E module
LG Innotek Co. has developed an automotive Wi-Fi module, which is the first to be based on the next-generation Wi-Fi 6E technology using 6 GHz bandwidth, as it aims to expand the future mobility market.
The Wi-Fi6E module is a near-field wireless communications component that connects in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems to external routers and smart devices.
It has a data transmission speed of 1.2 gigabits per second, which is roughly three times faster than the existing Wi-Fi 5, allowing it to connect to the network in 2 milliseconds.
It also combines a communications chipset, a radio frequency circuit, and other components and is compatible with existing modules.
Such seamless connectivity allows passengers to enjoy high-definition movies and games on the in-vehicle display or audio system.
LG Innotek claimed the product's enhanced durability lets it withstand temperature changes between -40 degrees Celsius and 85 degrees Celsius. Its larger synapse surface design allows it to cope with repeated shrinking and swelling.
LG Innotek expects to commercialize the Wi-Fi 6E module in 2022.
The company will target auto parts suppliers in Europe, North America, China, and Japan and will do joint promotions with Germany's Infineon Technologies AG that supplies Wi-Fi 6E automotive chipsets.
