Front-End Modules

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

Avago Technologies’ ALM-1712 is a GPS front-end module that combines a low-noise amplifier (LNA) with GPS FBAR filters. The LNA uses Avago Technologies’ proprietary GaAs Enhancement-mode pHEMT process to achieve high gain with very low noise figure and high linearity.

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.

Qorvo presents a new series of high-linearity 2.5 GHz Front-End Modules (FEMs) built for automotive Wi-Fi applications, 802.11b/g/n, and Bluetooth® systems. These devices feature integrated b/g/n power amplifiers, directional power detectors, RX balun, and TX filtering. Each FEM contains an ultra-small form factor and integrated matching that greatly reduces the number of external components and layout area in the customer application.

The SKY66122-11 is a high-performance, highly integrated RF front-end module (FEM) designed for high-power Industrial, Scientific, Medical (ISM) band, Wi-SUN, and other IOT applications operating in the 863 to 928 MHz frequency range.

The SKY66119-11 is a 460 MHz transmit/receive (T/R) front-end module designed to provide a complete T/R train with T/R switches. Mounted in a 28-pin, 6 x 6mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) surface-mount technology package, this device provides a highly manufacturable low-cost solution for automated meter reading, advanced metering infrastructure, ISM systems, and range extenders.

The QPF4001 from Qorvo is a multi-function GaN MMIC front-end module (FEM) ideally utilized for 28 GHz phased array 5G base stations and terminals. This device operates over the 26 to 30 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.

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 offers the SKY65903-11 front-end module (FEM) with an integrated low-noise amplifier (LNA) and pre- and post-filters that is ideal for GPS/GNSS/BDS receiver applications. The LNA uses surface-mount technology (SMT) in the form of a 2.5 x 2.5 mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) package, which allows for a highly manufacturable and low-cost module solution.
