    Mouser Electronics , Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, is now stocking the QPF4656 and QPF4730 Wi-Fi 6 and 6E (802.11ax) front end modules (FEMs) from Qorvo ® . The FEMs tap into the full potential of the Wi-Fi 6E spectrum while also delivering up to 25% more power efficiency than current competitive solutions. Their small form factors and integrated matching help minimize layout area while providing substantial cost, size and thermal performance advantages.

    Both FEMs incorporate a single-pole two-throw switch (SP2T), and a bypassable low noise amplifier (LNA)
    with a 5.945 GHz to 7.125 GHz power amplifier ( QPF4656 ) or a 5.1 GHz to 7.125 GHz power amplifier
    ( QPF4730 ). The FEMs provide transmit (Tx) gain values ranging from 30 to 32 dB and receive (Rx) gain of
    14.5 dB, with noise figures of 2 dB.

    The FEMs conserve power consumption while maintaining high linear output power and leading-edge
    throughput at the maximum power levels supported by Wi-Fi 6E’s extended bandwidth. This wide
    bandwidth performance feature enables the operation of the QPF4656 in all channels from UNII5-8 (5.9 –
    7.1 GHz) and the QPF4730 operation in all channels from UNII1-8 (5.1 – 7.1GHz) on the fly without any
    logic switching. The FEMs include die-level filtering for second and third harmonics, 2.4 GHz rejection for
    DBDC operation, and a voltage detector for application feedback. The QPF4632 also includes a coupler RF
    power detector.

    Applications for the FEMs include access points, residential gateways , customer premises equipment, and
    Internet of Things (IoT) devices. For development, Mouser also offers the QPF4656EVB and QPF4730EVB
    evaluation boards.
