Product Announcement

Irma Swain
Sr. Manager, Communications

RFMD’s new RFFM8xxx series provide complete integrated solutions in single front end modules (FEMs) for WiFi systems. The ultra-small form factor and integrated matching minimizes the layout area in the customer's application and greatly reduces the number of external components. This simplifies the total front end solution by reducing the bill of materials, system footprint, and manufacturability cost. Each device is provided in a 2.5mm x 2.5mm x 0.45mm, 16-pin QFN package.
