RFMD launches 4.9-5.85GHz front-end module for 802.11a/n WiFi

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA says that its new RF5836 provides a complete integrated solution in a single front-end module (FEM) for WiFi 802.11a/n systems.

The RF5836 integrates a 5GHz power amplifier (PA), single-pole double-throw (SP2T) Tx/Rx switch, and a power detector coupler for improved accuracy. Provided in a low-profile 3mm x 3mm x 0.5mm, 16-pin package, the device is suited to SiP (system-in-package) and CoB (chip-on-board) designs. RFMD says that the ultra-small form factor and integrated matching minimizes the layout area in the customer's application and greatly reduces the number of external components.

Features include a single supply voltage of 3.0-4.8V, and a low control voltage of >1.6V. Output power (POUT) is 15.5dBm (11a, 54Mbps at 4% EVM) and 14.5dBm (11n, 65Mbps at 2.8% EVM). The module meets or exceeds the RF front end needs of IEEE 802.11a/n WiFi RF systems.

Applications include cellular handsets, mobile devices, tablets, consumer electronics, gaming, netbooks/notebooks, and TV/monitors/video.
