    The Qorvo QPF4659 is an integrated front end module (FEM) designed for Wi-Fi 7 (802.11be) systems. The compact form factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area in the application.

    Performance is focused on optimizing the PA for a 5V supply voltage that conserves power consumption while maintaining the highest linear output power and leading-edge throughput. This is done across a wide bandwidth enabling operation in all channels from UNII5-8 (5.9 to 7.1 GHz) Integrated die level filtering for 2nd and 3rd harmonics as well as 2.4 GHz rejection for DBDC operation are included. A coupler with RF output as well as a broad range, constant slope voltage logarithmic power detector is provided for application feedback.

    The QPF4659 integrates a 6 GHz power amplifier (PA), single pole two throw switch (SP2T) and bypassable low noise amplifier (LNA) into a single device.
