RF Micro Devices has released front end modules (FEMs) to add to its 5GHz WiFi product portfolio. The two new FEMs, the RF5506 and RF5516 have integrated power amplifiers (PAs) and deliver high power and high linearity.

The growth of global WiFi market will increase 5GHz FEM adoption, both in dual-band Wi-Fi handsets and tablet devices with chipsets that adopt dual-band functionality.

To satisfy the growing market demand, RFMD has developed FEMs with high levels of integration, small package sizes and high linearity performance. RFMD offers a broad portfolio of FEMs that include the PA, the switch, filtering, baluns and an optional low noise amplifier (LNA) for both single-band (2.4GHz or 5GHz) and dual- band (2.4GHz/5GHz) operation. RFMD's Wi-Fi product portfolio also includes discrete PAs, switches and switch/LNA products that support integrated chipset solutions.

Samples and production quantities of the RF5506, and RF5516 are available now.
