RFMW announces design and sales support for an 802.11ax front end module (FEM). The Qorvo QPF4530 optimizes the power amplifier for 3.3 V operation providing energy efficiency with high capacity throughput. Integrating a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA), regulator, single-pole two-throw switch (SP2T), bypassable low noise amplifier (LNA), and power detector into a small 3 x 3 mm package, it also contains DIE level filtering for 2nd and 3rd harmonics as well as 2.4 GHz rejection. Designed for enterprise systems and service providers, the QPF4530 provides 30 dB of Tx gain and 15 dB of Rx gain with LNA noise figure of 2 dB.
