5Miniaturization demand of mobile phone is increasing What is ASM, FEM?Miniaturization demand of mobile phone is increasingHandset components ( Passive : Active = 75% : 25% )To achieve multifuncion and miniaturizaion , handset need smaller moduleSwitching and filtering could be easily integrated into one moduleASM (Antenna Switch Module)Because using TDMA to share time for 577us in 200KHz , GSM phone can use switch module.A few ceramic duplexer and filter can implement same function of ASM, but using ASM is cheaper than duplexer.ASM enable small sized multifunctional mobile phoneASM function- Diplexer function ( Divide the frequency band of GSM900 and DCS1800)- Duplexer function ( Divide Tx, Rx signal for each GSM900 and DCS1800)- Tx LPF function (Tx LPF for each GSM900 and DCS1800)FEM (Front End Module)> In addition to ASM, FEM includes Rx SAW filter> With integrating SAW to ASM, it is easier to make phone small size.> SAW filter function : In-band Rx signal can pass through with SAW filter
7Amotech ASM, FEM feature Very low Insertion Loss in TX, RX.- We guarantee TX I/L under -0.8dB of ASM.- We have good Output of Power through ASM from PAM.Very Stable and Flat Ripple in TX Bandwidth.- We keep Power Level stable among Low, Middle, High level.Good Attenuation in 2f0,3f0.- We give better Harmonics in 2f0, and 3f0.Better Stabilization on ESD Testing.- We produce FEM embedded with Varistor.Good TX and RX Isolation.Perfect Engineering Support and Competitive Pricing
