    The Qorvo® QPF4206 is an integrated front end module (FEM) designed for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) systems. The compact form factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area in the application.

    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. Receive path matches the optimal technologies to maximize Rx sensitivity through noise figure performance that is consistent over a wider variety of conditions.

    Another key feature is the integration of a logarithmic power detector which enables power accuracy at lower powers.

    The QPF4206 integrates a 2 GHz power amplifier (PA), regulator, single pole two throw switch (SP2T), and a bypassable low noise amplifier (LNA).
