The OM8816-51 is a high-power, high-efficiency Front-End Module (FEM) for GSM850 / EGSM900 and DCS1800 / PCS1900 operation. The FEM supports Class12 General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), EDGE multi-slot operation. This FEM builds upon OnMicro’s unique power amplifier architecture technology to provide maximum efficiency and output power, integrated over-current and over-voltage regulating technology stable ruggedness and TRP performance under load mismatch.
The module provides 50 Ω impedance at input and output ports, consists of a CMOS PA including a Controller, a SP16T RF switch with integrated Tx low pass harmonic filtering can achieve best harmonic performance. The OM8816-51 supports both the Linear Mode operation standard and VRAMP-BASED operation facilitating various platforms application implementation.
This FEM can sustain 8 KV ESD at Antenna port, without external components needed, and also guarantees robust
12 : 1 VSWR on Antenna Port under load mismatch condition.
