Jacket Micro Devices (JMD) has announced it will begin sampling what it claims is the market's first complete mobile WiMAX RF front end module in January 2007.

The product, M30001, is a WiMAX front end containing all active and passive components required to interface WiMAX transceivers directly to an antenna. The single 7-by-7-by-1.2mm QFN package is suited for mobile phone, laptop, and consumer electronics applications. The size of the M30001 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. M30001 is targeted for production release in 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."

The M30001 provides attenuation in the UMTS transmit and receive bands, making it suitable for cellular environments. The module delivers 24 dBm output power at four per cent error vector magnitude (EVM). It is compatible with MIMO and antenna diversity configurations using a1x2 architecture.
