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 Introduces 5GHz WiFi Module for 802.11ac
Notebook and Mobile Equipment Applications
Sr. Manager, Communications
NC, January 7, 2013 – RF Micro Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq GS: RFMD), a global leader in the design
and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components, today introduced the highly-integrated
RFFM4501E front end module (FEM) for 802.11ac notebook and mobile equipment applications.
RFMD's newest WiFi FEM meets or exceeds the system requirements for 802.11ac connectivity in
the 5.150GHz – 5.850GHz frequency band and is optimized to support multiple applications, including
notebooks, mobile routers, and low-power customer premises systems.
RFFM4501E integrates a +17.5dBm (80MHz MCS9) PA at 3.3V, a low insertion loss/high isolation
single pole two throw (SP2T) switch, harmonic filtering, and a low noise amplifier (LNA) with
bypass mode, for equipment manufacturers seeking to adjust receive sensitivity. The receive
chain provides 12.5dB of typical gain with only 12mA of current and an excellent noise figure
of 2.5dB. Separate Rx/Tx 50 Ohm ports simplify matching and provide input and output signals
for both the transmit and receive paths.
RFFM4501E is optimized to mate with the 802.11ac chipset of a leading semiconductor company.
The ultra-small form factor (3mm x 3mm x 1.1mm) and high level of integration of the RFFM4501E
shrink the product footprint, reduce external component count, minimize assembly costs, speed
time-to-market, and enable industry-leading product performance.
