Skyworks introduces low current LNA for ISM Band and VHF wireless apps
Skyworks Solutions Inc. introduces a low noise amplifier with high linearity and excellent return loss, while drawing as low as 5 mA of bias current. The internal active bias circuitry of the SKY67015-396LF LNA provides stable performance over temperature and process variation. Target applications include general purpose ISM band and high frequency wireless metering, sensors, microphones, military and battery-powered solutions. The amplifiers are also ideal for receiver applications that require lower NF and higher linearity than typically provided by low power silicon germanium LNAs. This device can also be used for applications requiring portable VHF and ISM band equipment.
