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 new QPF4516B Wi-Fi 6 front-end module (FEM) from Qorvo®. The FEM is designed for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) applications, enabling significantly faster wireless download/upload speeds, increased data capacity, enhanced connectivity in crowded spaces and improved battery life for Internet of Things (IoT) client devices. The highly integrated FEM is ideal for a range of Wi-Fi 6 applications, including wireless routers, customer premises equipment, and access points.

The Qorvo QPF4516B FEM, available from Mouser Electronics, integrates a 5.0 GHz power amplifier; a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch; and a low-noise amplifier with bypass. The FEM is designed to support increased users per access point, increased per-user traffic demand, higher-density deployments, increased cellular offloading, and additional power and performance in Wi-Fi 6 applications. The module’s power amplifier is optimized for a 5 V supply voltage, conserving power consumption while maintaining the highest linear output power and leading-edge throughput. The high-performance FEM provides a transmit gain of 33 dB and a receive gain of 15 dB, with a 2 dB noise figure.

The 5 mm × 3 mm QPF4516B FEM includes a logarithmic power detector, which enables power control across the entire power spectrum for applications that use higher gain antennas or end users wanting to reduce device calibration time in production.
