Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Skyworks has a new 0.02 – 4.0 gigahertz, gallium arsenide based high isolation, single-pole four-throw switch with integrated 50 Ohm terminations in small 3 x 3 millimeter quad flat no-lead plastic surface mount technology package.
Skyworks introduces two new, enhancement mode, low noise amplifiers (LNAs) that offer low noise figure, high linearity, and excellent return loss while drawing very low bias current. The SKY67012-396LF (0.3 – 0.6 GHz) and SKY67013-396LF (0.6 – 1.5 GHz) LNAs are ideal for general purpose industrial, scientific, medical (ISM band), and other high frequency applications.
The surface mountable, low capacitance silicon PIN limiter diodes are designed as shunt connected PIN diodes for high power limiter functions ranging from 10 MHz to over 6 GHz and are ideal for receiver protection applications.The diodes deliver low loss, very low series inductance, and low capacitance.
Skyworks introduces three miniature 0402 varactor diodes for VCO, phase noise and voltage tuned filter applications. The SMV1247-040LF, SMV1248-040LF, and SMV1263-040LF provide small form factor, discrete solutions for a variety of phase and frequency control uses. These miniature, plastic surface mount technology (SMT) diodes have reduced footprints in industry-standard packages.
The SMP1304-085LF is a high power shunt PIN diode for transmit and receive switching applications. The SMP1304-085LF is a discrete solution in a very low thermal resistance package that combines very low insertion loss, good isolation, excellent power handling (40W C/W), and low distortion.
The SKY67012-396LF, SKY67013-396LF, SKY67014-396LF, and SKY67015-396LFare ideal low noise amplifiers for battery powered receivers in applications including wireless metering and security, public safety radio, wireless microphones, and Bluetooth® headsets. The supply voltage is adjustable over a wide 1.8–5 V range and current draw as low as 5 mA.
The SKY12207-478LF, SKY12208-306LF and SKY12210-478LF are high power SPDT silicon-based PIN diode switches. The 4 x 4 millimeter, 16-pin quad flat no lead packaged devices features low insertion loss, high isolation, excellent power handling (50 and 100 Watts) and superb linearity with low direct current (DC) power consumption.

Skyworks Solutions has introduced its first commercialized switch designed to provide simple switching between RF filters with differential inputs. The SKY13354-368LF is a dual-crossed SP2T solution that provides low-loss, higher-isolation, and fast-switching capabilities.
