Qorvo Launches Industry's First Wi-Fi 6 iFEM for Whole-Home Coverage

Qorvo has launched the industry's first integrated front-end module (iFEM) that provides reliable, whole-home coverage when designed into Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) systems. The iFEM combines Qorvo's advanced BAW filter technology with its unique edgeBoost- or flat power- capability, nearly doubling Wi-Fi range and tripling capacity to handle more devices.

The Wi-Fi Alliance forecasts as many as 50 billion connected wireless devices around the world by 2022. The new Qorvo QPF7219 iFEM opens up the full 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi bandwidth, making it all usable throughout the smart home and delivering more FCC-compliant range than any competing product.

The new, compact edgeBoost BAW filter iFEM resolves interference, improves efficiency and reduces size- all while increasing speed, extending coverage and connecting more devices.

The QPF7219 integrates a 2.4 GHz power amplifier (PA) with a power detector, FCC edgeBoost BAW filter, regulator, transmit-receive switch and by-passable low-noise amplifier into a single device. This removes 20 surface mount components based on a 4x4 configuration, reducing printed circuit board area by 40 percent compared to standalone solutions.

The PA's performance, optimized for a 5V supply voltage, conserves power while maintaining the highest linear output power and leading-edge throughput across all Wi-Fi channels 1 through 11. This eliminates the need to reduce transmit power (flat power) to meet FCC regulatory limits. It makes range, capacity and coexistence improvements across all available channels, significantly increasing quality of service.

Qorvo solutions, including the Wi-Fi 6 iFEM (QPF7219) will be on display at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, from 7 to 10 January 2020.
