5 GHz 802.11a/n Wi-Fi Front End Module

    Key Features

    • Single Supply Voltage 3.0V to 4.8V Integrated 5GHz Amplifier, LNA, and SPT2T TX/RX Switch POUT=15.5dBm, 11a, OFDM at 2.5% EVM Low Height Package, Suited for SiP and CoB Designs

    Qorvo's RF5506 provides a complete integrated solution in a single Front-End Module (FEM) for Wi-Fi 802.11a/n systems. The ultra small form factor and integrated matching minimizes the layout in the customer's application and greatly reduces the number of external components to only one bypass capacitor for supply decoupling. This simplifies the total Front End solution by reducing the bill of materials, system footprint, and manufacturability cost. The RF5506 integrates Power Amplifier (PA), Low Noise Amplifier (LNA), and a power detector coupler for improved accuracy. The device is provided in a 3 mm x 3 mm x 0.5 mm, 16-pin package. This module meets or exceeds the RF Front End needs of IEEE 802.11a/n Wi-Fi RF systems.
