Qorvo has introduced what it claims is the first wideband Wi-Fi front-end module (FEM) for the 5.1 GHz to 7.1 GHz bands for customer premises equipment (CPE).

The QPF4730 device provides support for both Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E enterprise solutions.

Previously, Wi-Fi routers are fixed to specific frequency due to the narrowband nature of the solutions. For broadband operation, manufacturers must place a 5 GHz front-end module, a 6 GHz front-end module and switch components.

The Qorvo device delivers full high-band support to reduce board space required in Wi-Fi 6E upgrades.

The QPF4730 is optimized for power over Ethernet (PoE) to improve quality of service, range and throughput.
