The RF65x9 series of transmit/receive modules from RFMD integrate a complete solution in a single front-end module (FEM) for AMI/AMR and Smart Grid solutions. The FEMs integrate a PA, transmit (Tx) filtering, input and output switches, a Tx or receive (Rx) attenuation path, and an LNA with bypass mode.
Single-ended input and output are included for optimized ease of use and implementation. The pin-out of the FEM enables users to implement additional filtering external to the module, if needed.
For the RF6509, RF6519 and RF6569 respectively, output power is 29.5 dBm, 26 dBm and 30 dBm; while transmit gain is 31 dB, 30 dB and 15 dB. For the RF6509 and RF6519 respectively, receive gain is 18 dB and 17 dB, while noise figure is 2.5 dB and 1.5 dB.
Typical applications include 868MHz/900MHz ISM band applications, single chip RF front end modules, portable battery powered equipment, and wireless automatic metering.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
