RFMD launches 2.8-4.2V, 915MHz ISM-band Tx/Rx module with diversity switch

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has launched the RFFM6901, a single-chip RF front-end module (FEM) for applications in the 868/915MHz ISM (industrial, scientific & medical) band as well as in wireless automatic metering applications, wireless alarm systems, portable battery-powered equipment, and smart energy applications.  

RFMD says that the RFFM6901 addresses the need for aggressive size reduction for typical portable equipment RF front-end design and greatly reduces the number of components outside of the core chipset, thus minimizing the footprint and assembly cost of the overall solution.

The FEM contains an integrated 1W power amplifier (PA) with nominal Tx output power of 30dBm, dual-port antenna diversity switch, low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass mode, and matching components.

The RFFM6901 is packaged in a 32-pin, 6.0mm x 6.0mm x 1.2mm over-molded laminate package with backside ground, which greatly minimizes next-level board space and allows for simplified integration, the firm claims.

Pricing begins at $3.25 each for 100-unit quantities.
