Qorvo - QPF4211

The Qorvo® QPF4211 is an integrated medium power front end module (FEM) designed for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) systems. The small form factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area in the application.

Performance is focused on optimizing the PA for a 5 V supply voltage, while providing optional operation over a wide range, that conserves power consumption while maintaining the highest linear output power and leading edge throughput. Receive path matches the optimal technologies to maximize Rx sensitivity through noise figure performance that is consistent over a wider variety of conditions.

Integrated die level filtering for 2nd and 3rd harmonics as well as 5 GHz rejection for DBDC operation are included. A DC power detector with a voltage output provides feedback. The QPF4211 integrates a 2.4 GHz power amplifier (PA), regulator, single pole two throw switch (SP2T), bypassable low noise amplifier (LNA) and DC power detector into a single device.
