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 QPF4528 front end module (FEM) from Qorvo®. Designed for Internet of Things (IoT) systems based on Wi-Fi® 6, the 5 GHz FEM offers a compact form factor and integrated matching to minimize layout area in applications such as wireless routers, set top boxes, and access points.
Qorvo’s QPF4528 FEM, available from Mouser Electronics, integrates a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA), regulator, single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch, low noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass mode, RF coupler, and voltage power detector into a single device. The FEM boosts linear power transmission without increasing power dissipation, enabling higher-performance Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) enterprise access points in smaller form factor designs.
The QPF4528 FEM allows up to 8×8 multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) in both conventional and Power over Ethernet (PoE) systems, offering fewer access points, enhanced capacity and efficiency, improved speed, and reduced operating costs across enterprise systems. The device is also optimized to solve thermal challenges in Wi-Fi equipment designed for MU-MIMO environments.
