Skyworks Releases 5GHz FEM
Module incorporates power amplifier, LNA with bypass, and SPDT transmit/receive switch
Skyworks has introduced the SKY85774-11, a highly integrated 5 GHz front-end module (FEM) that supports simultaneous WLAN and licensed assisted access (LAA) protocols for mobile smartphones and tablets.
This advanced module incorporates a power amplifier, low-noise amplifier with bypass, and an SPDT transmit/receive switch.
According to the company, its high performance power amplifier increases range and saves power while eliminating external devices and reducing PCB area.
The SKY85774-11 comes in a compact 20-pin 2.2 x 3 package and is currently being targeted at leading mobile connectivity reference designs.
