Multi-Chip SMT Module for the 26GHz 5G Pioneer Band



Plextek RFI and Filtronic Broadband work in collaboration to develop a European 5G pioneer band Multi-Chip SMT Module.

Plextek RFI has designed MMICs and components for mmWave 5G; developed in collaboration with Filtronic Broadband the new Multi-Chip Module covers the 26GHz (24.25 to 27.5GHz) European 5G pioneer band.

It comprises LNA, PA and transmit/receive switch housed in a custom laminate SMT package measuring 10mm x 10mm.

RF filtering has been integrated into the package structure: a band-pass filter after the LNA and a harmonic rejection filter after the PA.
