Barcelona, SpainSkyworks Solutions Inc. has introduced a front-end module (FEM) dubbed the SKY77445 that is designed for 3.9G wireless applications, including LTE and UMTS terrestrial radio access network (EUTRAN).
The SKY77445 Band VII (2.6 GHz) FEM is a fully matched, 16-pin surface mount module. The LTE FEM integrates the power amplifier (PA), interstage filter, input and output matching, power detection, and duplexer in a single 4 x 7 x 1.1 mm package.
The SKY77445 provides high TX attenuation in the RX band, and operates at a low voltage of 3.3V with high linearity and efficiency. In addition, SKY77445 meets stringent adjacent channel power radio (ACPR) and error vector magnitude (EVM) requirements as demanded by the LTE/EUTRAN standards.
Samples are currently available, with volume production scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2009.
Skyworks will be showcasing its portfolio of Intera FEMs and Helios radio solutions in Hall 8, Stand C132 at Mobile World Congress, being held February 11-14.
