802.11ax Wi-Fi FEM claims first with active steering

February 28, 2018 // By Julien Happich
The EC714 5GHz Wi-Fi front end module (FEM) from Ethertronics claims to be the first 802.11ax Wi-Fi FEM with integrated active antenna technology, providing robust Wi-Fi RF performance and linearity required to support 802.11 ax/ac applications. 

Combined with Ethertronics’ patented active steering antenna technology, this system delivers the 2x performance and coverage benefits in a flexible, cost-optimized solution.

The EC714 Wi-Fi active steering FEM is based on a breakthrough CMOS architecture, enabling the integration of an 802.11ax -class Wi-Fi FEM design with an advanced active steering engine into a single ASIC. The EC714 supports the complete set of RF-level performance requirements for 802.11ax/ac, including support for 160 MHz channel bandwidth at MCS11 in 5 GHz frequency bands. The FEM features a +18.5 dBm power output for high-performance 802.11ac applications (MCS9 – 80 MHz channel bandwidth) and MCS11 – 160 MHz channel bandwidth support for high-performance 802.11ax applications.
