RFMD Expands Family of Front End Modules for ZigBee®-Based Smart Energy and ISM Applications
RF6515 Developed in Collaboration With Ember
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- RF Micro Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq:RFMD), a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, today announced the availability of the RF6515 front end module (FEM). RFMD's feature-rich RF6515 FEM improves the performance of 2.4GHz - 2.5GHz ISM band wireless applications requiring longer-range operation at high efficiency, including WLAN, Zigbee(R), Smart Energy/Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Home Area Networks (HANs).
RFMD's highly integrated RF6515 FEM integrates a 20dBm PA, harmonic transmit filtering and a double-pole, double-throw (DPDT) switch. The RF6515 also features an integrated balun, which provides a balanced 50 ohm match for the Rx and Tx signal paths. The RF6515 is packaged in a 3.5mm x 3.5mm x 0.5mm package, which is industry-leading and five times smaller than competitive offerings, significantly minimizing customer product footprints and greatly reducing assembly costs and external component counts.
RFMD's RF6515 was designed in collaboration with Ember. Used together, RFMD's RF6515 and Ember's EM250 deliver industry-leading performance while shortening customer design time and accelerating product time-to-market.
Availability and Pricing
The RF6515 is available immediately and volume pricing begins at $1.44.
