RF Micro Devices, Inc. recently expanded its Wi-Fi product portfolio to include three new front end modules (FEMs): the RF5325, RF5345 and RF5725. The highly integrated FEMs are designed to address the need for high performance and continued size reductions in mobile Wi-Fi applications, including handsets, personal navigation devices (PNDs), digital cameras and MP3 players.

The RF5325, RF5345, and RF5725 FEMs each contain a 2.4 GHz power amplifier (PA) designed to optimize linearity while minimizing current consumption—a critical requirement in battery powered devices. Each FEM integrates an output power coupler, transmit (Tx) low pass filtering and a single-pole three-throw (SP3T) switch capable of switching between Wi-Fi receive (Rx), Wi-Fi Tx, and Bluetooth® Rx/Tx operations. The integrated coupler significantly lowers bill-of-material (BOM) costs and reduces the board area necessary for front end implementation in chipsets utilizing closed loop power control to adjust output power. The RF5345 and RF5725 also integrate a low noise amplifier (LNA) for RF architectures requiring additional Rx gain.

Technical features of the RF5325, RF5345, and RF5725 include:

  • Compact, low profile packages: 3.0 x 3.0 x 0.5 mm
  • Low external component count
  • Designed for operation in 802.11 b/g/n systems
  • Excellent linearity, 3.3% error vector magnitude (EVM)
  • Integrated output power coupler
