The RF7168 is the first available product in RFMD's RF716x family of dual-band (GSM900/DCS1800 or GSM850/PCS1900) transmit modules. Each GSM/GPRS TxM in the RF716x product family leverages RFMD's industry leadership in GaAs pHEMT and patented PowerStar® integrated power control technology while integrating transmit filtering for best-in-class harmonic performance.
