    Qorvo's RFFM8528 provides a complete integrated solution in a single front end module (FEM) for WiFi 802.11a/n/ac systems. The next generation ultra-small factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area in the customer's application, reduces the bill of materials and greatly reduces the number of external components. Performance is focused on a balance of efficiency to enable long battery life and linear power that increases the range of connection. The RFFM8528 integrates a 5GHz power amplifier (PA), single pole double throw switch (SP2T), LNA with bypass, and a power detector coupler for improved accuracy. The device is provided in a 2.3mm x 2.3mm x 0.33mm, 16-pin QFN package.
