The Avago ACFM-2013 is a highly integrated quadplexer device that combines Band 1 and Band 3 duplexers in a single miniature package. The device features a single antenna connection, eliminating the need for antenna switching. High isolation between bands enables the use of carrier aggregation.
Low Tx insertion loss of the ACFM-2013 reduces power amplifier current drive, thereby extending RF radio battery life. The device enhances receiver sensitivity and dynamic range with low Rx insertion loss and high rejection of Tx signals at the Rx ports.
The excellent power handling capability of Avago's FBAR bulk-mode resonators supports the high Tx output power levels needed for modern mobile devices while adding minimal distortion.
