Murata announced the launch of its latest frontend modules for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth applications. Murata's Microwave Monolithic Integrated Devices integrate the company's power amplifier, low noise amplifier and switching product into single packages for both the 2.45GHz and 5GHz bands (respectively numbered MDFE2PFA-022 and MDFE2PFA-023). The modules can be combined with a highly integrated, single chip radio - such as the Broadcom BCM4330 chipset - to provide a connectivity solution for the cellular phone, portable device, and person computer markets
For the engineer, Murata's MMID series enables a complete system to be achieved with minimal components. The line is extremely flexible, with the ability to support 802.11b/g and Bluetooth and/or 802.11a. Designers can also use one or both front end modules to mix and match wireless networks with minimal design resources. This reduces the complexity of design and greatly improves time to market. Other benefits include optimized performance at low current consumption to save battery life. Further, the miniaturized size allows for a compact design, providing the small and thin end products that consumers demand.

Murata is uniquely positioned to do this work because of our vast number of customizable solutions for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. From complete highly integrated modules and sub modules to discrete components, we have the balanced technology and vast experience to provide the most advanced, complete product portfolio with quick time-to-market, stated Keisuke Katabuchi, Product Manager, Europe, RF product , Murata Europe. Murata's MMID series is tremendously flexible in terms of shape and size, allowing for placement just about anywhere on the board where there is space. The fact that they are already proven with Broadcom's BCM4330 chipset speaks volumes about market demand.

The lead-time for samples is two to three weeks and 12 to 14 weeks for production quantities.
