Qorvo offers the QPF4530 integrated front end module (FEM) for Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) systems. The QPF4530 integrates a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA), regulator, single pole two throw switch (SP2T), bypassable low noise amplifier (LNA) into a single device. With a compact form factor and integrated matching, this module minimizes the layout area required for its application.
The QPF4530’s PA is optimized for a 3.3 V supply voltage that conserves power consumption while maintaining the highest linear output power and leading-edge throughput. The receive path matches the optimal technologies to maximize Rx sensitivity through noise figure performance that is consistent over a wider variety of conditions. The receive path is also pinned out so external filtering can be added in the optimal position. Also included are integrated die level filtering for 2nd and 3rd harmonics as well as 2.4 GHz rejection for DBDC operation.
