Qorvo®, a leading provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications, announced it has expanded its broad portfolio of Wi-Fi products to include new front end modules (FEMs) designed for wireless broadband home gateways and set-top-boxes. Qorvo is an innovator in highly integrated front end modules for Wi-Fi that combine best-in-class performance with up to 3.2 watts of power savings.
The RFFM4552 and RFFM4558 5GHz 802.11ac FEMs offer the industry's best power consumption, linearity, and throughput. These modules support Multi-User Multi-Input Multi-Output (MU-MIMO) with up to 8x8 antenna configurations, allowing gateways to deliver multiple wireless streams simultaneously to different devices, including new 4K Ultra-High Definition (UHD) televisions and DVD players. Additionally, the 1024 QAM modulation capabilities enable the highest data rates possible in Wi-Fi solutions.
"Qorvo's new high performance FEMs enable service providers and OEM's to differentiate their Wi-Fi routers, broadband gateways and set-top-boxes with improved overall system performance and industry-leading power consumption," said James Klein, president of Qorvo's Infrastructure and Defense Products. "By offering the best efficiency and thermal performance, our front end modules help Wi-Fi device manufacturers support the high data rates and throughput needed for today's increasingly connected home."
The front-end modules deliver system-level compliance in the band-edge to meet FCC regulations and significant performance requirements related to radiated harmonics. The RFFM4552 is available in a 3 mm x 3 mm QFN package and the RFFM4558 is available in a 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm package, and both FEMs are sampling today.
Today's consumers demand that their home Wi-Fi networks deliver increasing data throughput to support a growing range of connected and high-definition applications like streaming media and gaming. Qorvo's complete portfolio of Wi-Fi FEMs (PA, LNA, switch, harmonic filtering) and discrete devices deliver best-in-class 802.11ac wireless performance for the rapidly expanding number of connected devices in the home.
