RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

RFMD to Unveil Highly-Integrated FEM for Smart Energy/Advanced Metering Infrastructure
and ISM Band Applications
Vegas, January 8, 2013 – RF Micro Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq GS: RFMD), a global leader in the design
and manufacture of high-performance RF components, announced today it will unveil a highly-integrated
front end module (FEM) for Smart Energy/Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) applications
at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. RFMD's single-chip
RFFM6403 FEM delivers industry-leading performance, reduces customer design time and speeds
customer time-to-market in Smart Energy/AMI applications operating in the 405MHz–475MHz frequency
range, as well as for portable battery powered equipment and general 433/470MHz ISM band systems.
RFFM6403 integrates a transmit high power path with a +30.5dBm PA and Tx harmonic output
filtering, a transmit bypass thru path with Tx harmonic output filtering, and a receive path
with a low noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass mode. The FEM also features a low insertion loss/high
isolation SP3T switch and separate Rx/Tx 50Ω ports, simplifying matching and providing input
and output signals for both the Tx and Rx paths.
RFFM6403 is designed for AMI systems operating with high efficiency requirements and a minimum
output power of 30 dBm. In the receive path, the Rx chain provides 16 dB of typical gain with
only 5 mA of current and an excellent noise figure of 1.7 dB. The high level of integration
and industry-leading form factor (6mm x 6mm x 1mm) minimize product footprint at the customer
device while reducing external component count and associated assembly costs.
showcase its broad portfolio of Smart Energy/AMI, ZigBee, and ISM band solutions from January
8 to January 11, at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in the ZigBee Alliance Pavilion, in South
Hall 1, booth 20612, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
