Skyworks is pleased to introduce
a new low-noise amplifier, front-end module with integrated pre- and post- filters for GPS receiver
applications. This 1559-1606 MHz high performance module is idea for global positioning and navigation
satellite systems in end products such as fitness/activity trackers, watches, pet trackers, smartphones
and tablets. The device features high linearity, excellent gain, and a low noise figure for improved
signal-to-noise ratio. Integrated pre- and post-filters provide low in-band insertion loss and excellent
rejection for the cellular, PCS, and WLAN frequency bands. Low current consumption extends battery life
and single DC supply simplifies design and minimizes board layout. Its compact 16-pin, 2.5 x 2.5 mm
Multi-Chip Module (MCM) package allows for a highly manufacture-able and low-cost solution.
Small signal gain: 14.2 dB
In-band IIP3: –7.3 dBm
Low noise figure: 1.7 dB
Low current consumption
Input/output impedance internally matched to 50 Ω
Single DC supply: 1.8 V
No external SMT required
Small, MCM (16-pin, 2.5 x 2.5 mm) package (MSL1, 260°C per JEDEC J-STD-020)
The SKY65903-11 is a front-end module (FEM) with an integrated low-noise amplifier (LNA), and pre-
and post-filters designed for Global Positioning System / Global Navigation Satellite System / Beidou
Navigation Satellite System (GPS/GNSS/BDS) receiver applications. The device provides high linearity,
excellent gain, and a low noise figure (NF).
The pre- and post-filters provide low in-band insertion loss and excellent rejection for the cellular,
PCS, and WLAN frequency bands.
The SKY65903-11 uses surface-mount technology (SMT) in the form of a 2.5 x 2.5 mm Multi-Chip Module
(MCM) package, which allows for a highly manufacturable and low-cost solution.
