Skyworks Unveils 2-Stage Low Noise Amplifiers with High LinearityCompact Devices Serve High Performance Receiver Applications;
Latest Solutions in New LNA Family Further Extend Linear Products Business
BOSTON − IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) − June 9, 2009 – Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high reliability analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today introduced several 2-stage, ultra low noise amplifiers (LNA) with high linearity performance. Fabricated using Skyworks’ advanced pHEMT process, the small and cost-effective solutions serve a number of demanding receiver applications including global positioning systems (GPS), satellite digital audio radio services, WCDMA and LTE infrastructure platforms, and ISM base stations, repeaters and access points. Skyworks’ devices minimize system noise figure, improving receiver sensitivity and providing customers with greater flexibility to meet a wide range of performance requirements.
“We are excited to be adding these high performance, low noise amplifiers to Skyworks’ portfolio,” said David C. Stasey, Skyworks’ vice president of analog components. “Today’s new receiver specifications require low noise figure amplifiers with high linearity amplification. Our solutions meet these stringent parameters with a high degree of flexibility, balancing efficiency with power and linearity performance. More importantly, these new solutions broaden our footprint into high growth adjacent markets and further support Skyworks diversification strategy.”
About Skyworks’ Low Noise Amplifiers
Skyworks’ new ultra low noise 2 x 2 millimeter (mm) amplifiers offer performance under 0.7 dB while providing high linearity amplification with OIP3 up to 35 dBm. The SKY65037-360LF, operating from 0.7 to 1.2 gigahertz (GHz), and the SKY65040-360LF, operating from 1.5 to 2.4 GHz, have the flexibility of external tuning to set gain up to 25 dB and supply current adjustment of 30 to 100 mA. The quad flat no-lead (QFN) devices are lead (Pb)-free and restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS)-compliant.
