This paper presents the design and performance of chips suitable for an RF front-end module, for WiMAX applications. The chips include a low cost single pole double throw (SPDT) switch and low noise amplifier as well as a 10-Watt 3.5GHz power amplifier MMIC implemented in a plastic air cavity QFN 8times6 mm2 package. Plastic packaging is used for the switch and the low noise amplifier. The broadband performance of these parts allow coverage from 3.3 GHz up to 3.8 GHz, over temperature range and… CONTINUE READING
