The Ultimate Guide to QFN Package

QFN Package Overview
 
The QFN (Quad Flat No-lead) package is probably the most popular semiconductor package today because of four reasons: low cost, small form factor and good electrical and thermal performance.
 

 
Like any other semiconductor package, a QFN package functionality is to connect (both physically

RF Package Design Focusing Portability

Today, the (SiP) System-in-Package approach offers a new dimension to system integration, far beyond mere dense micro-packaging of existing System on Chip solutions. Not only does SiP offer the capability to integrate almost any kind of companion passive component with a given active circuit, but it also enables flexible combinations
