    Key Features

    • Tested in Accordance with AEC-Q100 Standard
    • Single Supply Voltage 3.0V to 4.8V
    • Integrated 5GHz Amplifier, SPT2T TX/RX Switch, LNA, and Power Detector Coupler
    • POUT = 16dBm, 11n, 2% Dynamic EVM; 3.3V

    Qorvo's RFFM8500Q 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 area in the customer's application and greatly reduces the number of external components. This simplifies the total front end solution by reducing the bill of materials, system footprint, and manufacturability cost. The RFFM8500Q integrates a Power Amplifier (PA), Single Pole Double Throw switch (SPDT), LNA and a power detector coupler for improved accuracy. The device is provided in a 3mm x 3mm x 1.0mm, 16-pin laminate package. This module meets or exceeds the RF Front End needs of IEEE 802.11a/n Wi-Fi RF systems. The RFFM8500Q is tested in accordance with the AEC-Q100 Standard.
