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

    Key Features

    • POUT = 17.5dBm, 11ac, 80MHz MCS9 at -36dB (1.5%) EVM
    • Small Size
    • High performance FEM
    • Input and Output Matched to 50 ohm
    • Integrated 5GHz PA, SP2T, Switch, and LNA (with Bypass if required)
    • Low Height Package, Suited for SiP and CoB designs

    Qorvo's RFFM8506 provides a complete integrated solution in a single front end module (FEM) for Wi-Fi 802.11a/n/ac systems. The ultra-small factor and integrated matching minimizes 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 manufacturing cost. The RFFM8506 integrates a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA), single pole double throw switch (SP2T) and an LNA with bypass. The device is provided in a 2.5mm x 2.5mm x 0.45mm, 16-pin QFN package. This module meets or exceeds the RF front end needs of IEEE 802.11a/n/ac Wi-Fi RF systems.
