RFMD launches 3.3–4.0V 433–470MHz and 470–510MHz transmit/receive front-end modules

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has launched two new transmit/receive front-end modules (FEMs) in 5.5mm x 5.0mm, 28-pin packages.

The RF6504 is for 433–470MHz AMI/AMR systems (i.e. 433MHz/450MHz to 470MHz ISM-band applications). The Tx port provides a power amplifier (PA) with nominal output power of 30dBm and gain of 15dB. The Rx pass-through port is on a separate path. Both are combined with a single antenna port and SP2T switch.

The RF6514 for 470–510MHz AMR systems (i.e. 490MHz ISM-band applications) contains separate ports for the Rx and Tx paths. Its PA produces nominal output power of 30dBm.

For both devices, features include a separate 50Ω Tx/Rx transceiver interface and Rx insertion loss of 1dB. Applications include wireless automated metering, wireless alarm systems, portable battery-powered equipment, smart energy, and single-chip RF front-end modules.

Pricing begins at $2.04 each for the RF6504 and $1.73 each for the RF6514, each in 750-piece quantities.
