Skyworks Solutions Inc. expanded its family of antenna switch modules (ASM) for smartphones and tablets, offering solutions in up to 14 throw counts to meet various handset manufacturers’ layout preferences and design needs. Skyworks is also unveiling a full suite of complementary discrete LTE transmit and receive solutions covering single pole double throw (SPDT) through single pole eight throw (SP8T) applications in a compact 2 x 2 millimeter footprint. Together, these latest devices support low cost 3G handsets, as well as high speed packet access/LTE-enabled data centric devices such as data cards and tablets – both of which require design flexibility, high performance and cost-effective architectures.
Skyworks’ comprehensive RF switch solutions are based on PHEMT and silicon technology and complement its existing world-class, gallium arsenide and silicon power amplifiers and front-end solutions.
“Skyworks is delighted to once again be offering our customers the broadest set of switch solutions to meet demanding performance requirements and design needs,” said David Stasey, vice president of analog components at Skyworks. “Our ability to support multiple platforms and architectures in various process technologies demonstrates Skyworks’ technical breadth, depth and commitment to delivering best-in-class solutions.”
Skyworks’ ASMs are logic compatible with the world’s leading 3G/4G chipset providers’ interface requirements. In addition to integrated switch and logic, the devices all feature dual low-pass GSM harmonic filters. The ASMs are designed for any combination of 2G/3G multimode cellular applications.
Skyworks’ LTE transmit/receive switches are high linearity solutions that can handle multiple input, multiple output receive diversity as well as post power amplifier WCDMA/HSPA+/LTE PA transmit signal routing requirements. Using advanced switching technologies, the devices maintain low insertion loss and high isolation for both transmit and receive switching paths.
