  • Power Handling Considerations for SMD Terminations, Attenuators, and Resistors

    Power ratings for Anaren’s SMD Terminations, Attenuators, and Resistors are based off of the temperature at the solder interface where the solder is in contact with the SMD components. This application note describes the power rating of high power surface mount resistive products, as well as techniques for maximizing power handling performance of these products.

Low Profile OCXO and OCVCXO: N45/NV45 AA/AB Series

This series of OCXO cover the 5MHz to 20MHz frequency range.  It is ideal for low phase noise and excellent frequency stability applications including base stations, synthesizers, digital switching, test equipment and military.

Antenna Switches for Carrier Aggregation

Antenna Switches for Carrier Aggregation

Smartphone users have challenged (and will continue to challenge) mobile networks with the increased amounts of data they download. Though the wireless spectrum is vast, it’s still limited in its availability. Carrier aggregation is a technique that uses two or more bands at the same time to combine spectrum and increase data throughput, giving smartphone users a better data experience. Skyworks recently released two new antenna switches for use in carrier aggregation applications.

SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) Oscillators

SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) Oscillators

SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) Oscillators by Phonon are essentially specialty microcircuits that process analog signals in radar, communications, electronic warfare (EW), and other defense and space applications. SAW Oscillators are different from other oscillator types in that they use acoustic waves on a material's surface for signal processing.

FEMs, LNA, PAs, and Switches for Video Game Consoles

FEMs, LNA, PAs, and Switches for Video Game Consoles

If the last few generations of video consoles taught us anything, it’s that gamers have almost entirely embraced internet connectivity in their systems, and that wired controllers are a thing of the past. This page provides an overview of Skyworks’ front-end modules, low noise amplifiers, switches, and power detectors used in Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo consoles. These components help facilitate online play and wireless controller connectivity.
