Designers of mobile WiMAX/WiBRO systems face many challenges when designing and specifying the RF front end. There are issues with system power output, FCC regulations, power consumption, and interference with local cellular radios. Other issues are layout and design flexibility, and the potential need for custom modules.

Avago has addressed these concerns with our new flexible dual band WiMAX RF front end solution. The solution consists of three separate small standalone modules: two full-band power amplifiers and a switch/detector/control module.
