This front end module is an ideal solution for applications involving wireless automatic metering, portable battery powered equipment, Smart Energy, the 400 MHz ISM band, and other areas that require a solution that complies with the need for size reduction and a reduction in the number of components outside of the core chipset.
Qorvo’s integrated front end modules (FEMs) are included with a compact form factor and integrated matching that minimizes the layout area in Wi-Fi 802.11 a/n/ac and 802.11 b/g/n system applications. Their performance is focused on conserving power consumption while maintaining the highest linear output power and leading edge throughput.
Skyworks offers the SKY85717-21 as a highly-integrated, 5 GHz front-end module comprised of a 5 GHz single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) transmit/receive switch, a 5 GHz low noise amplifier with bypass, and a 5 GHz power amplifier. The module is ideal for 802.11 ac set-top boxes, networking, personal computer systems, and WLAN enabled wireless video systems.
Skyworks’ newest family of compact, high performance RF front-end modules (FEMs) is specifically designed for LPWAN – supporting LoRa®, SigFox and other unlicensed band technologies – as well as high-power Industrial, Scientific, Medical (ISM) applications operating in the 860-930 MHz frequency range. These new solutions deliver improved sensitivity and more than quadruple the operating range versus a standalone system-on-chip (SoC). They also occupy minimal board space and consume low power, making them ideal for IoT and industrial platforms including sensors, beacons, smartwatches, thermostats, wireless cameras, medical pendants and smoke and CO detectors.
The SKY78113 SkyOne® Ultra 2.0 is a multimode multiband front-end module (FEM) designed for optimal performance in CDMA/WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+/FDD LTE-modulated handsets for bands 26, 8, 12/17, 13, 20, 28, 29, BC0, and BC10. The RF input and output ports are internally matched to 50 ohms which minimizes the need for external components.
The RF5725 is a single-chip integrated front-end module (FEM) for high performance WLAN applications in the 2.4GHz to 2.5GHz ISM band. This FEM greatly reduces the number of external components, minimizing footprint and assembly cost of the overall 802.11b/g solution. The RF5725 has an integrated b/g power amplifier, LNA, a Coupler Power detector, and TX filtering. It also is capable of switching between WLAN RX, WLAN TX, and BTH RX/TX operations. This device is manufactured using GaAs HBT and pHEMT processes on a 3mmx3mmx0.5mm 16-pin QFN package. This module meets or exceeds the RF front-end needs of 802.11b/g WLAN RF systems.
