Skyworks Unveils High Gain and High Linearity LNAs for Cellular Infrastructure
30, 2011 -- Skyworks is pleased to introduce a series of high gain, two stage LNAs employing both GaAs pHEMT and
GaAs HBT technology that offer very low noise figure, high linearity and excellent return loss in a small, quad
flat, 4 mm squared leadless package. On-die, active-bias design ensures consistent performance and enables
unconditional stability. The pHEMT front-end enables ultra low noise figure, while the HBT-based output stage
provides customers a compelling solution with both high linearity and efficiency.
SKY67105-306LF (0.6 – 1.1 GHz) and
the SKY67106-306LF (1.5 – 3.0
GHz) high gain, low noise amplifiers are well suited for cellular infrastructure applications such as tower
mounted amplifiers, remote radio units, repeaters and base stations. These new LNAs also enable traditional
wireless infrastructure OEMS and broad market wireless OEMs that provide small cost sensitive receivers to offer
very low noise amplification (<0.75 dB Noise Figure), high linearity (+38 dBm OIP3), and higher gain (>32 dB) than
typically provided by a single stage LNA solution.
