Skyworks offers four new front end modules operating in frequencies from 2 GHz to 5 GHz. They are designed to provide full functionality of a fully matched power amplifier (PA), power detector, harmonic filter, and low-noise amplifier (LNA). They are ideal for networking and personal computing systems, PC cards, PCMCIA cards, mini-cards, half mini-cards, and WLAN-enabled wireless video systems.
The SKY68000-31 is a hybrid, dual-band multi-chip RF front-end (RFFE) module supporting cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT (half-duplex system) transceiver platforms. The module integrates the entire RF front end necessary for an LTE dual-band radio operating in Band 13 and Band 4 including Rx SAW filters, dual-band PA with bias controller, Tx low-pass harmonic filter, antenna switch, and MIPI RFFE controller.
The SKY66111-11 is a highly integrated front-end module (FEM) from Skyworks operating in the 2.4 to 2.485 GHz frequency range. It features low power consumption of 10 mA at 10 dBm, Rx bypass and supply operation from 1.8 to 5 V, and comes in a 20-pin MCM 3.3 x 3.0 x 0.8 mm package.
Qorvo introduces the new QPM1002 GaN MMIC front-end module (FEM) designed specifically for X-band radar applications in the 8.5 – 10.5 GHz frequency range. Combining a T/R switch, low-noise amplifier, and a power amplifier, this device delivers a small signal gain of 33 dB, delivers 3 W of saturated power, and 25 dB of large signal gain.
Skyworks introduces the SkyOne® Ultra 2.5 as its newest SkyOne® front-end solution targeting the high growth China LTE market. This fully-integrated multiband module includes both global and region-specific architectures that provide OEMs with the ability to leverage the same printed circuit board across multiple smartphone platforms in diverse-end markets. SkyOne® Ultra 2.5 solutions are composed of the following:
Qorvo presents a new series of high-linearity 2.5 GHz Front-End Modules (FEMs) built for automotive Wi-Fi applications, 802.11b/g/n, and Bluetooth® systems. These devices feature integrated b/g/n power amplifiers, directional power detectors, RX balun, and TX filtering. Each FEM contains an ultra-small form factor and integrated matching that greatly reduces the number of external components and layout area in the customer application.
These WiFi Front End Modules are ideal for applications involving gaming, Smart Energy, tablets, mobile devices, netbooks/notebooks, TV/Monitors/Video, cellular handsets, and more. These high performance FEMs feature excellent linearity, a wide voltage supply range, input and output matched to 50 ohms (resulting in a high level of integration) a low height package (ideal for SiP and CoB designs), and much more.
