802.11ac Switch/LNA Front End Module: SKY85608-11

Source: Skyworks Solutions, Inc.

This front end module (FEM) combines a SP2T switch and an LNA with a bypass mode in an 8-pin, 1.5 x 1.5mm DFN package. It’s ideal for applications involving WiFi-enabled headsets, tablets, and mobile systems, for SiP modules for embedded systems, and in 802.11n/ac smartphones and tablets.

The SKY85608-11 SP2T switch/LNA front end module has a receive gain of 12dB, a 2.0dB noise figure, and a 0.6dB transmit path loss. It can switch between WLAN receive and WLAN transmit functionality and operates in the 4.9 to 5.925 GHz frequency range.
