Skyworks Introduces Silicon CMOS Switch Matrix for LNB with Tone/Voltage Decoder

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. announces a 4 x 2 switch matrix combining a digital decoder with the RF switching network and tone/voltage detect designed for European- and Asian-market applications including Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) Low Noise Block (LNB) – the SKY13292-365LF. DBS is a service that allows households to receive television programming directly from a satellite transponder. The LNB is located on the satellite dish antenna and amplifies/downconverts to a 0.7-2.15 GHz IF. The switch matrix is responsible for connecting four of the satellite signals to two indoor set-top controllers, selectable by the viewer’s channel choice. The switch is packaged in a lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant, QFN 4 x 4 mm plastic package. The datasheet is located at: http://www.skyworksinc.com/products_detailpop2.asp?pid=12456, and samples are available. Pricing depends on quantities.
