Skyworks offers the new SKY68001-31 LTE universal multi-band front-end module made for cellular IoT modem devices targeting LPWAN, LTE universal modem products operating in low-band B5/B8/B12/B13/B17/B18/B19/B20/B26 and mid-band B1/B2/B3/B4/B25/B39/B66 frequencies, and PAE optimized for Class 3 LTE output power. The cost-optimized module features a low-loss post-PA transmit front end for enhanced efficiency, a broadband PA supporting APT mode of operation or Vcc fixed supply, and integrated low-pass filters for harmonic rejection.
The SKY68001-31 includes to AUX broadband ports that may be used symmetrically for either Tx or Rx operation. The Smart Biasing feature allows for easy power control through the MIPI interface by programming reduced bias current for low gain states, as well as reducing the required output dynamic range of the transceiver. Functional operation is fully controllable by a single MIPI interface used to drive the PA in a variety of optimized bias modes, provide band selection, and control the antenna switch Tx, Rx, and band selection.
