RDA Microelectronics has unleashed its quad flat no-lead (QFN) GSM front end modules (FEM) aimed at quad-band cellular handsets. The RDA6641 and RDA6651 claim to be the industry's first QFN solution and flaunt the company's IPD technology to deliver best-in-class performance for the cost-sensitive GSM mobile market.

The RDA6641 and RDA6651 are packaged in a 5 x 5 x 0.75mm form factor with pin mappings designed for compatibility with previous RDA products such as the RDA6625 and RDA6635. These devices integrate quad-band power amplifiers and antenna switches, enabling cost competitive advantages compared to traditional Land Grid Array (LGA) packaged solutions while providing almost identical RF performance, noted RDA. Both devices have passed all of the strict reliability and life tests required for mobile handset applications.

"RDA continues to make significant strides in technology advancement as demonstrated by our release of the industry's first QFN solution for GSM handsets. GSM remains the dominant technology standard in the emerging markets, where mobile subscriber growth is being driven by increasing demand for low-cost handsets," stated Vincent Tai, chair and CEO of RDA Microelectronics.

The QFN FEMs are in volume production.
