RFMD launches high-power front-end modules for 802.11b/g/n WiFi 2.4-2.5GHz CPE applications

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has launched the RF5605 and RFFM420x family of high-power, front end modules (FEMs), designed specifically for IEEE 802.11b/g/n WiFi 2.4-2.5GHz customer premises equipment (CPE) applications.

Applications for the RFFM4200, RFFM4201, RFFM4202 and RFFM4203 FEMs include access points/gateways, WiFi-enabled set-top boxes, data cards and terminals, and spread-spectrum and MMDS systems.

Each device has an integrated three-stage linear power amplifier, Tx harmonic filtering, and SPDT switch. Operating from a single 5.0V supply, output power (POUT) is 27.5dBm (< 2.5% EVM) and gain is 35dB (typical) across the frequency band.

The 1X1 MIMO-architecture modules also have a fully matched input and output for a 50Ω system and incorporate matching networks optimized for linear output power and efficiency. With mirrored pin-out options, the modules align with any chipset or configuration used for WiFi designs.

Housed in a 6mm x 6mm laminate, pricing begins at $4.67 each for 100 pieces.
