Qorvo introduces the new QPM1002 GaN MMIC front-end module (FEM) designed specifically for X-band radar applications in the 8.5 – 10.5 GHz frequency range. Combining a T/R switch, low-noise amplifier, and a power amplifier, this device delivers a small signal gain of 33 dB, delivers 3 W of saturated power, and 25 dB of large signal gain.
The SKY68000-31 is a hybrid, dual-band multi-chip RF front-end (RFFE) module supporting cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT (half-duplex system) transceiver platforms. The module integrates the entire RF front end necessary for an LTE dual-band radio operating in Band 13 and Band 4 including Rx SAW filters, dual-band PA with bias controller, Tx low-pass harmonic filter, antenna switch, and MIPI RFFE controller.
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 QPF4006 from Qorvo is a multi-function GaN MMIC front-end module (FEM) ideally utilized for 39 GHz phased array 5G base stations and terminals. This device operates over the 37 to 40.5 GHz frequency range, and combines a low noise, high linearity LNA, a low insertion loss, high isolation TR switch, and a high gain, high efficiency multi-stage PA.
The SKY66111-11 is a highly integrated front-end module (FEM) from Skyworks operating in the 2.4 to 2.485 GHz frequency range. It features low power consumption of 10 mA at 10 dBm, Rx bypass and supply operation from 1.8 to 5 V, and comes in a 20-pin MCM 3.3 x 3.0 x 0.8 mm package.
Skyworks offers the SKY66118-11 and the SKY66407-11, 2.4 GHz front-end modules (FEMs) for Bluetooth Internet of Things (IoT) applications including smartwatches, trackers, connected home systems, wireless and gaming headsets, and more.
