Skyworks introduces its latest family of LTE broadband low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) targeting global cellular and M2M applications. These modules deliver low noise figure, excellent return loss and high-linearity performance along with high-gain and bypass modes.
The SKY68001-31 is a hybrid, multi-band multi-chip RF front-end (RFFE) module supporting cellular LTE CatM1/CATNB1 (half-duplex system) transceiver platforms. The module integrates the entire RF front end necessary for an LTE multi-band radio operating in low-band B5/B8/B12/B13/B17/B18/B19/B20/B26 and mid-band B1/B2/B3/B4/B25/B39/B66 frequencies.
Skyworks announced the launch of the SKY66113-11, the company's newest 2.4 GHz fully-integrated RF front-end module (FEM) supporting Bluetooth® Low Energy/Bluetooth® Smart, 802.15.4, Thread and ZigBee® applications.
Skyworks is pleased to introduce the SKY66105-11, a high performance, highly integrated RF front-end module (FEM) designed for high power Industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) and connected home applications operating within the 902 to 931 MHz frequency band. This FCC-compliant module integrates harmonic filters and shielding, making it an ideal design choice for sensors, smart meters (water, gas, electric) and machine-to-machine uses.
Skyworks has released the SKY13592-689LF, a single-pole, double-throw switch for mode switching in WLAN applications such as ISM band radios, smartphones and connectivity modules. This 1 to 6 GHz device uses advanced switching technologies to maintain low insertion loss and high isolation for all switching paths. It also delivers high-linearity performance, making it an ideal choice for low-power transmit/receive applications.
Skyworks has broadened its antenna tuner portfolio with two mobile industry processor interface (MIPI®)-controlled devices that support ultra-low Ron (SKY19247-686LF) and ultra-high Vpeak (SKY19237-001). These tuners are ideal for smartphones, data cards and MiFi® hotspots and improve antenna efficiency, as well as total radiated power (TRP) and total isotropic sensitivity (TIS) performance.
Skyworks is pleased to introduce a family of GPIO-controlled, high performance RF cellular switches for LTE and GSM applications. The SKY13581-676LF (SP2T), SKY13582-676LF (SP3T) and SKY13626-685LF (SP4T) are for LTE, while the SKY13597-684LF (SP4T) is for GSM. This new family of switches is ideal for smartphones, data cards and MiFi® hotspot applications.
Skyworks has introduced a highly integrated 470 to 510 MHz front-end module (FEM) that is ideal for smart energy, smart metering (electric, gas, water, heat), security, RFID, industrial and other Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The SKY66115-11 FEM operates over a wide variety of supply voltages at low power consumption, and comes in a small 4 x 4 x 0.9 mm, 16-pin multichip module solution. Its extended range more than doubles when compared to a standalone system-on-chip solution.
Skyworks introduced two RF switches ideal for the Internet of Things applications including the connected home. The SKY13587-378LF, which is a pHEMT GaAs SPDT switch, can be used for transmit and receive switching in industrial, lighting and smart energy applications, as well as 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN networks. The SKY13588-460LF is a CMOS silicon-on-insulator SP3T switch made for antenna selection in Wi-Fi applications in IoT systems.
