RFMW announced design and sales support for a 5 GHz front-end module (FEM) from Qorvo. The QPF4506B integrates a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA), regulator, single pole two throw switch (SP2T), bypassable low noise amplifier (LNA) and coupler into a single device for Wi-Fi 802.11ax systems. Performance is focused on optimizing the PA for a 5 V supply voltage that conserves power consumption while maintaining the highest linear output power and leading edge throughput. The receive path has Integrated die level filtering for second and third harmonics as well as 2.4 GHz rejection for DBDC operation. An integrated logarithmic power detector enables power accuracy at lower powers. The compact form factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area.
