The Jacket Micro Devices (JMD) M30001 front end module integrates all active and passive components required to interface WiMAX transceivers directly to an antenna.
The single 7-by-7-by-1.2-mm QFN package allows WiMAX interfaces to be integrated along with other wireless and computing functions into small form factor products such as PCI Express, USB and handsets.
The M30001 provides exceptional attenuation in the UMTS transmit and receive bands making it ideal for cellular environments.
Meeting the need for extended range and increased data rates of WiMAX devices, the module delivers 24 dBm output power at 4 percent error vector magnitude (EVM).
It is compatible with MIMO and antenna diversity configurations using a1x2 architecture.
Samples of the M30001 module will available in January 2007 with production release scheduled for Q2 2007.
"We are convinced that WiMAX will offer consumers a new and exciting option for mobile broadband connectivity," said Jim Stratigos, JMD's CEO.
"Our modules will greatly simplify the design of WiMAX products and turn what could be a challenging RF circuit design with many disparate active and passive components into a single tested and ready to use component."
