The rapidly growing WLAN market calls for smaller and smaller transmitters in the form of CF or SD cards and USB connectors, said epcos AG. This in turn leads to demand for ultracompact modules.

As an answer to this demand, the company released a complete dualband front-end module (FEM) that complies to IEEE standard 802.11 a/b/g. Measuring 5.4-by-4-by-1.4mm, the type R005 is touted to be the world's smallest WLAN single-band FEM R012A to IEEE 802.11 a/g with the same dimensions as the R005 but with an integrated power amplifier. The module contains a double-pole, double-throw switch (DPDT), a 2.4GHz RX bandpass filter, a 2.4GHz TX low-pass filter and the complete PA. In addition, the module is compatible with most single-band WLAN chipsets.

According to the company, reduced space requirements and development expenses, as well as cost savings and shorter time to market are decisive customer benefits.
