RFMD launches 4-4.5V, 915MHz ISM-band transmit/receive module

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has launched the RF6559 front-end module (FEM) for 915MHz AMR (automated meter reading) systems.

The FEM contains an integrated three-stage power amplifier (PA) with 42dB of gain and typical power output of 28dBm. The RF6559’s integrated single-port Rx/Tx (50Ω) allows for transmit/receive (Tx/Rx) functions on a single antenna via two integrated SPDT (single-pole double-throw) switches.

The module includes Tx filtering, a built-in power detector, and a two-stage low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass mode with typical gain of 32dB, all a 28-pin, 6mm x 6mm laminate package with backside ground.

Applications include wireless automated metering, wireless alarm systems, portable battery-powered equipment, smart energy, 868MHz/915MHz ISM-band applications, and single-chip RF front-end module.

The product is available in production quantities. Pricing begins at $2.84 each for 750 pieces.
