    The Qorvo QPF4730 is an integrated front end module (FEM) designed for Wi-Fi 6+6E (802.11ax) systems. The small form factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area in the application.

    Performance is focused on optimizing the PA for a 3.3V 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 UNII1-8 (5.1 to 7.1GHz) on the fly without the need for any logic switching.

    Integrated die level filtering for 2nd and 3rd harmonics as well as 2.4 GHz rejection for DBDC operation are included. A coupler RF power detector as well as a voltage detector are provided for application feedback.

    The QPF4730 integrates a 5-7 GHz power amplifier (PA), single pole two throw switch (SP2T) and bypassable low noise amplifier (LNA) into a single device.
