pSemi Unveils PE562212, Its Smallest and Fully Integrated PA-LNA-SW IoT Front-End Module

Leveraging three decades of leadership in advanced connectivity, PE562212 provides flexibility and performance value to IoT device designers and manufacturers

SAN DIEGO – January 9, 2024 – pSemi® Corporation, a Murata company leading in the design and development of semiconductor integration and advanced connectivity, today announced the introduction of their smallest PA-LNA-SW Internet of Things (IoT) front-end module (FEM): the PE562212. Designed in adherence to the Thread and Matter protocols, industry frameworks that focus on simplifying connected experiences, PE562212 is an ultra-compact multi-protocol 2.4 GHz FEM that enables a variety of connectivity options for IoT devices.

With a 14-lead 1.8 × 1.8 × 0.7 mm LGA package (MSL3), the PE562212 is an IoT FEM specifically designed for space-constrained applications, delivering superior flexibility and value to IoT device makers. The PE562212 enables connectivity across Thread, Zigbee®, Bluetooth® BDR/EDR, BLE, and low-medium throughput Wi-Fi® (MCS7) as well as 2.4 GHz proprietary applications. It can be used to connect everything from smart speakers, smart lighting, smart thermostats, and in-home appliances to IoT hubs, range extenders, wireless audio, wearables, sensors, asset tracking, industrial devices, and more to ensure link robustness.

“The introduction of PE562212—pSemi’s first IoT FEM offering—leverages years of innovation and expertise in semiconductor integration and advanced connectivity, packaging the best technology and design architecture into a highly flexible solution for the IoT market. We understand the challenges our customers and IoT device developers around the world face when it comes to space, power consumption, and link budget. We are very proud to now offer one of the industry’s smallest IoT FEMs that addresses these challenges head-on for the widest array of IoT applications and devices.”

The new IoT FEM is designed with both efficiency and linearity in mind as it enables higher data rate applications such as Wi-Fi, striking the delicate balance of adequate linear power with that of power efficiency. Powered by pSemi’s proprietary UltraCMOS® technology, PE562212 leverages high-performance capabilities and integration for PCB-limited IoT applications with up to +21 dBm output power and digital Tx gain control of 1 dB steps with 15 dB range. It also delivers industry-leading Rx capability (1.5 dB NF, typ.) and low IL bypass path (0.9 dB, typ.) with a GPIO control interface.

PE562212’s ultra-compact design provides PCB space savings and easier board routing as no external SMD components, including control lines, supply lines and RF, are required. It also offers excellent ESD and ruggedness for all intended applications and environmental conditions inherent to the IoT space.
