The BTS7203H from NXP Semiconductors is a Dual-Channel Receiver Analog Front-End Module that operates from 2.3 to 2.7 GHz. It has 2 independent receive channels each with a variable gain low noise amplifier (LNA) and switch for high-power Tx signals. The FEM is developed on NXP’s silicon-germanium (SiGe) process and provides a fast switching time between operation modes. In the Tx mode, it delivers up to 37 dBm of power and has a PAPR of 9 dB. In Rx mode, it provides 37 dB with a noise figure of 1.3 dB.
The BTS7203H is matched to 50 Ω and integrates harmonic and out-of-band filtering which minimizes the layout area in the application. It requires a DC supply of 3.15 to 3.45 V and consumes less than 46 mA of current. This RoHS-compliant FEM is available in an ESD-protected HVQFN32 package that measures 5.0 x 5.0 x 0.85 mm with 32 pins. It is designed for 5G mMIMO, and Wireless Infrastructure applications.
