'World's smallest' front-end module for WLAN and Bluetooth

20 February 2008 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Epcos has developed what it claims is the most compact all-in-one front-end module available for Bluetooth and WLAN applications to the 802.11 b/g/n standard. With an insertion height of 1,4 mm, it has a footprint of only 4,5 x 3,2 mm on a circuit board.

The module integrates a WLAN power amplifier, a WLAN-Bluetooth switch, a receive balun, and a bias circuit with ESD protection. In addition, the coexistence filter allows simultaneous operation of WLAN and Bluetooth applications with all mobile phone standards. The LTCC module, with the designation D6101, thus provides all the required functions between WLAN or Bluetooth RF transceivers and the antenna.
