PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The ANADIGICS AWL9566 is a high performance
Front End Integrated Circuit (FEIC) that incorporates
a 5 GHz Power Amplifier, 5 GHz Low Noise Amplifier,
5 GHz SP2T RF Switch and 2 GHz SP3T RF switch.
The FEIC is designed for WLAN transmit and receive
applications in the 2.400 GHz to 2.485 GHz and 5.150
GHz to 5.850 GHz bands. Matched to 50 V at all RF
.
inputs and outputs, the part requires no additional
RF matching components off-chip. The antenna
ports are switched between WLAN transmit, WLAN
receive, Bluetooth, and simultaneous WLAN and
Bluetooth paths with low loss RF switches. The PA
exhibits unparalleled linearity and efficiency for IEEE
802.11a/n WLAN systems under the toughest signal
configurations within the standard. Vtx2
