03.06.14 -- RF Front End Module Design: Challenges And Solutions
RF Front End Module Design: Challenges And Solutions By TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc.
To maintain a competitive edge, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are pushing for functional components that are smaller and more cost-effective, all while maintaining utmost quality. One such critical component is the radio frequency front end. In this paper, we discuss the challenges facing radio frequency (RF) front end manufacturers and integration efforts in the front end industry, and we provide some technological and application-based insights on the next generation of integrated modules called multimode multiband power amplifiers (MMPAs).
Spotlight On Medical Design
Bio-Electromagnetics: Medical Device, Exposure, And SAR Simulation The interaction of electromagnetic fields and biological tissues is relevant in various technical applications. The design of medical equipment and treatment plans generally benefit greatly from simulation; additionally, simulation can give insight into living tissue where measurement is almost impossible.
Wideband RF Power Amplifier Used in various medical applications including proton therapy for cancer treatment, the KAA5020M15 is an RF power amplifier covering the 0.9- to 30-MHz frequency range.

This download contains information on Huber + Suhner's RF components for medical system diagnostics. Corrugated cables, fiber optic connectors, hermetically sealed components, nonmagnetic coaxial connectors, and nonmagnetic coaxial cables are included.
This ISM Band Cavity Filter is ideal for wireless applications due to its capability of rejecting adjacent cellular, GSM, and paging bands. Operating in the 902- to 928-MHz range, this filter features high selectivity along with low insertion loss. Custom designs up to the Ku band are also available.
The design of radio frequency coils is of paramount importance to the quality and safety of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Being the signal generator and detector of MRI, RF coils are required to generate a uniform excitation in the target during transmission and high signal-to-noise ratio during reception.
This presentation describes the simulation of one proposed antenna, designed to permit communication between devices in each ear. The design was simulated in the presence of a homogeneous SAM phantom and an anatomically correct, heterogeneous head model.
API Technologies will accommodate your specific design constraints and requirements to meet medical standards. Many years of experience in providing EMI/RFI solutions has allowed API to satisfy both global EMC regulations and time-to-market constraints.
