Skyworks Unveils Next-Generation Ultra Low-Noise Amplifiers
High-Performance Solutions Meet Demanding Noise and Linearity Requirements for Multiple Wireless Infrastructure
Calif. (IEEE MTT-S 2010) May 26, 2010 – Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high reliability
analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today introduced two next-generation
low noise amplifiers (LNAs) for multiple cellular infrastructure receiver applications including GSM, CDMA, WCDMA
and LTE base stations and repeaters. These new monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifiers allow
infrastructure providers to meet a wide range of demanding performance requirements with a single device that
minimizes system noise figure, improves receiver sensitivity and delivers unconditional stability.
pleased to be expanding our infrastructure product portfolio particularly as estimates for mobile data traffic are
expected to double every year through 2014,” said David Stasey, vice president of analog components at Skyworks.
“These solutions are just one of several devices that help reduce the size and complexity of networking equipment
while enabling greater reliability, capacity and efficiency.”
About Skyworks Next-Generation LNAs
SKY67100-396LF (1.7 - 2.0 GHz) and the
SKY67101-396LF (0.7 - 1.0 GHz) are gallium arsenide (GaAs) enhancement mode pseudomorphic high electron
mobility transistor (pHEMT) LNAs designed for low noise figure down to 0.49 dB while providing unconditional
stability and high-linearity performance up to OIP3 of 34 dBm. The addition of an internal active bias circuitry
provides stable performance over temperature. These new LNAs are available in a small, low-cost, industry-standard
2 x 2 x 0.75 millimeter (mm), 8 pin, dual flat no-lead (DFN) package and are layout compatible with each using a
reduced-component matching network.
Pricing and Availability These solutions are available now. For pricing
