  1. Top 10 Small Cell Infrastructure Questions
    6/8/2017

    While small cells offer a host of benefits, they also create heat issues. Power-efficient power amplifiers offer a compelling solution to this dilemma. This Q&A sheds light on some trends and challenges in today’s small cell market and uncovers the power-efficient PA’s role in overcoming these challenges.

  2. 5G In Perspective: A Pragmatic Guide To What's Next
    5/5/2017

    The world’s communications and other connected technologies are evolving rapidly toward 5G in the hope of bringing about new and exciting solutions for deep learning, artificial intelligence, and “ambient awareness.” 

  3. Accurate System Level Design With Low Noise Amplifier’s BlackBox Models
    4/18/2013

    System level simulations are not easy. Adding individual integrated or discrete component’s foundry/supplier kits to the system simulation adds complexity. Through Skyworks’ BlackBox model for its SKY67151-396LF LNA, which does not include any extra modeling kits, you can accurately simulate and predict small and large signal performance. By Eric Marsan, Stephen Moreschi, Ambarish Roy, and Vivian Tzanakos, Skyworks Solutions, Inc.

  4. Choosing The Right RF Switches For Smart Mobile Device Applications
    5/12/2011
    This paper will give an overview of both high and low throw-count RF switches used in different circuit locations in a typical mobile device design, and discuss how each performance specification and design feature will impact on the overall performance of your system. In addition, this paper will dive deeper inside each RF switch module and reveal current and future trends in core RF switching technologies. By Skyworks Solutions
  5. High Gain Phototransistor Optocouplers For Space Applications
    7/18/2013

    One of the first optocouplers used for high reliability applications was the simple phototransistor optocoupler. The basic devices were the 4N22, 23, 24 and the 4N47, 48, 49 series of hermetic phototransistor optocouplers in TO‐five type transistor cans made for military applications developed in the early 1970s. However, these devices were never designed specifically for space radiation environments. By Steve Ching and Manor Narayanan, Isolink, a subsidiary of Skyworks Solutions, Inc.
