    Qorvo's RF6509 integrates a complete solution in a single Front-End Module (FEM) for AMR and Smart Grid solutions. The RF6509 integrates a 915MHz PA, some transmit (Tx) filtering, input and output switches, a Tx or receive (Rx) attenuation path, and an LNA with bypass mode. The RF6509 has a single-ended input and output for optimized ease of use and implementation. The pin-out of the FEM enables users to implement additional filtering external to the module, if needed. The device is provided in a LGA, 32 pin, 8mm x 8mm x 1.2mm package.
