Skyworks has expanded its tuning product portfolio with the addition of several new high performance solutions for antenna tuning, impedance tuning, and band switching applications. These antenna aperture tuner switches are designed for enabling higher data throughput and smaller footprints, minimizing dropped calls, and improving the consumer experience.
The new family of GPIO-controlled, high performance RF cellular switches from Skyworks is designed for LTE and GSM networks, and are ideal for smartphones, data cards and MiFi® hotspot applications. The SKY13581-676LF (SP2T), SKY13582-676LF (SP3T) and SKY13626-685LF (SP4T) are for LTE, while the SKY13597-684LF (SP4T) is for GSM.
Qorvo offers a series of single pole triple throw (SP3T) SOI switches and switches + LNA modules for automotive WiFi, automotive data and diagnostics, infotainment, key fob, IEEE802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi, and 2.5 GHz ISM band applications. Four models are available; two of them are WiFi switches, and two of them are WiFi switches with a low noise amplifier (LNA) in a front end module (FEM). With an ultra-small form factor and integrated matching, the number of external components and layout area in the customer applications, as well as the bill of materials, system footprint, and manufacturing cost are greatly reduced.
Skyworks introduces two new Wi-Fi switches that are optimized for WLAN networks, repeaters, ISM band radios, smartphones, connectivity modules, and Bluetooth® and Zigbee® systems. The SKY13585-679LF single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch operates within the 1 to 6 GHz range, and maintains low insertion loss and high isolation for all switching paths. The SKY13586-678LF is a single-pole triple-throw (SP3T) switch specifically designed to operate within 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi applications.
The 75SA-082 is a 75 Ohm RF switch system in a low profile benchtop enclosure type for applications in the DC-2150 MHz range. It has an RF input power of +20 dBm, has a manual control 20-button keypad and LCD display, and 4 individual 1P4T failsafe self-terminating configurations.
Skyworks offers a family of ultra-high isolation (47 dB) multi-throw switches for 0.7–3.0 GHz Rx switching, and for switching single-ended Rx SAW filters in cellular handsets. Consuming less than 10 µA of current, the SKY13522-644LF, SKY13523-639LF and SKY13524-639LF are ideal for low power switching in smartphone, data card, IoT, infrastructure, and test and measurement applications.
Skyworks’ SKY12241-492LF and SKY12242-492LF are 50 or 100 W, integrated, high-power single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switches. They are designed with a driver circuit that is ideal for TDD 2G/3G/4G LTE applications, as well as high-power switches for micro and macro-base stations, and active antenna arrays.
Planar Monolithics Industries (PMI) offers a new absorptive, single-pole four-throw (SP4T) pin diode switch designed for applications operating over the 0.1 to 50.0 GHz frequency range. With low insertion loss and high isolation in a slimline package, this P4T-100M50G-100-T-RD switch incorporates a TTL compatible driver for simple system integration.
