    Qorvo's RFFM6500 is a single-chip front end module (FEM) for application in the 168MHz to 171MHz ISM Band. The RFFM6500 addresses the need for aggressive size reduction for typical portable equipment RF front end designs and greatly reduces the number of components outside of the core chipset thus minimizing the footprint and assembly cost of the overall solution. The RFFM6500 contains an integrated 1/2W PA, Tx/Rx SP2T RF switch, low pass filter, Si logic controller, and matching components. The RFFM6500 is packaged in a 32-pin, 6.0mm x 6.0mm x 1.2mm over-molded laminate package.
