RFMD launches 2.4GHz front-end module for ZigBee and WiFi

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has launched the RF6505, which integrates a complete solution in a single front-end module (FEM) for ZigBee (802.15.4-based systems for remote monitoring and control) and WiFi (802.11b/g) applications in the 2.4–2.5GHz band.

The 3.3V FEM integrates the power amplifier (PA) plus harmonic filter in the transmit path and the low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass mode in the receive path.

The module provides a single balanced TDD access for Rx and Tx paths, along with two ports on the output for connecting a diversity solution or a test port.

Features include P1dB (output power at 1dB gain compression) of 27dBm and gain of 28dB (Tx) and gain of 10dB and a noise figure (NF) of 2.5dB (Rx).

Pricing begins at $2.59 each for 750 pieces.
