The WLAN7001C is a fully integrated RF front-end MMIC for 802.11a/n/ac WLAN standard with up to 80 MHz channel bandwidth. It includes a low noise amplifier, a single pole double throw switch required for TDD operation. The WLAN7001C also includes a Tx power amplifier and an integrated power detector covering the entire ISM band.
The WLAN7001C integrates harmonic and coexistence filtering. The WLAN7001C has Rx by-pass mode for high-power signal handling and low-power Tx mode to
optimize power efficiency of the PA for low-power levels. Manufactured on QUBiC eighth generation SiGe:C technology of NXP Semiconductors. The WLAN7001C offers best-in- class noise figure, linearity, and power efficiency and low insertion loss CMOS switches with good process stability.
The WLAN7001C has a 1.7 mm × 2.0 mm footprint with HX2SON10 package with 300 μm thickness.
The device is matched to 50 Ω and integrates harmonic and out of band filtering which
minimizes the layout area in the application.
