Quad-Band GSM / GPRS Transmit Module; PA / LPF / SP6T
Discontinued – Please contact TriQuint Sales for details
The TriQuint TQM6M4003 is an advanced quad-band transmit module designed for mobile handset applications and provides full RF transmit functionality in a size of only 36 mm². The GSM850 / 900 and DCS / PCS power amplifier blocks, including power control, are combined with the low insertion loss quad-band pHEMT switch, Tx harmonics filtering, integrated switch decoder, four receive ports and full ESD protection. This architecture eliminates the need for any power amplifier-to-switch design effort for phone designers. All four Rx ports are frequency independent and allow flexible routing to the transceiver. Fabricated in high-reliability InGaP HBT / pHEMT technology, the module supports GPRS class 12 operation and provides 50 Ohms input and output impedances at all RF input and output ports. The module control inputs are CMOS compatible and has no need for an external reference voltage. With its excellent efficiency performance in all 4 bands, the power amplifier and switch module contributes to the overall talk-time targets of next generation mobile handset designs.
