RF Front-end Modules Boost Wireless Performance

Not all Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Wi-Fi or ZigBee solutions are created equal. That is the inescapable conclusion of some recent tests comparing popular system-on-chip (SoC) platforms with and without Skyworks Solutions’ front-end modules (FEMs).

The tests examined output power versus transmit current, data rate versus range (for high and low data rates) and current consumption per bit.
