    The Qorvo RFFM8515 provides a complete integrated solution in a single front end module (FEM) for WiFi 802.11a/n/ac systems.  The ultra-small form 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 RFFM8515 integrates a 5GHz power amplifier (PA), single pole double throw switch (SP2T), LNA with bypass, and a power detector coupler for improved accuracy.
