Skyworks Solutions Inc. unveils an integrated, single-stage, low-cost PIN diode limiter module to address the growing need for full receiver low-noise amplifier protection in microwave applications. The SKY16601-555LF is a low threshold/insertion loss/distortion module in a surface-mount package meant for use as a passive receiver protector in wireless or other RF systems for frequencies up to 6 GHz.
Flip chip is a type of surface mountable packaging technology that reduces footprint and thickness (compared to conventional packaging), weighs less, is easy to assemble, lowers production costs and improves electrical and thermal performance. Their significant size and weight reduction makes them ideal for use in a variety of mobile devices.
Skyworks Solutions Inc. introduces a highly integrated 5 GHz WLAN front-end module for reference designs targeting smartphones and tablets in a 2.5 x 2.5 mm, QFN package. The SKY85702-11 incorporates a power amplifier and a SPDT transmit and receive switch for mobile/portable 802.11ac applications and systems.
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. introduces a 2110-2170 MHz single junction, robust lead isolator in an industry leading, small footprint, 11 x 11 mm surface mount package. The SKYFR-000727 is ideally suited for various wireless/cellular infrastructure applications including small-cell designs where space constraints exist. The isolator’s insertion loss is < 0.30 dB over an operating temperature range of –40° C to +100° C.
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. introduces a µSwitcher™ step-down converter for space-constrained, portable applications including Bluetooth® headsets, smartphones, digital cameras, hard-disk drives, portable media players and other battery-operated handheld computers/peripherals.
