Front-End Modules


Skyworks'  5 GHz WLAN Front-End Modules are highly efficient, highly integrated, 5 GHz front-end module (FEM) incorporating a 5 GHz single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) transmit/receive (T/R) switch, a 5 GHz low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass, and a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA) intended for 802.11ax applications and systems.

The Avago ALM-1912 is a GPS front-end module that combines a GPS FBAR filter with High-gain Low-noise amplifier (LNA). The LNA uses Avago's proprietary GaAs enhancement-mode pHEMT process to achieve high gain with very low noise figure and high linearity.

The SKY85334-11 and SKY85750-11 are 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz front-end modules (FEMs) respectively, and compliment Skyworks' expansive portfolio of FEMs designed for growing retail, carrier and enterprise Wi-Fi 6 applications. The modules offer high linearity, low power dissipation, and efficiency for access points, routers and gateways where regulatory, thermals or Power-over-Ethernet limitations demand low current consumption. These highly integrated FEMs incorporate switching, low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass and power amplifier (PA) and are housed in a compact package. 

The SKY85812-11 is a highly integrated, dual-band front-end module (FEM) incorporating a 5 GHz single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) transmit/receive (T/R) switch, low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass, and 2.4 GHz single-pole, triple-throw (SP3T) with Bluetooth® port and LNA with bypass. 

Qorvo offers the QPF4530 integrated front end module (FEM) for Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) systems. The QPF4530 integrates a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA), regulator, single pole two throw switch (SP2T), bypassable low noise amplifier (LNA) into a single device. With a compact form factor and integrated matching, this module minimizes the layout area required for its application.

Qorvo introduces the new QPM1002 GaN MMIC front-end module (FEM) designed specifically for X-band radar applications in the 8.5 – 10.5 GHz frequency range. Combining a T/R switch, low-noise amplifier, and a power amplifier, this device delivers a small signal gain of 33 dB, delivers 3 W of saturated power, and 25 dB of large signal gain.

Skyworks introduces the SkyOne® Ultra 2.5 as its newest SkyOne® front-end solution targeting the high growth China LTE market. This fully-integrated multiband module includes both global and region-specific architectures that provide OEMs with the ability to leverage the same printed circuit board across multiple smartphone platforms in diverse-end markets. SkyOne® Ultra 2.5 solutions are composed of the following: 

The SKY66121-11 is a 169 – 170 MHz transmit/receive (T/R) front-end module designed to provide a complete T/R train with T/R switches. Mounted in a 16-pin, 6 x 6mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) surface-mount technology package, this device provides a highly manufacturable low-cost solution for automated meter reading, advanced metering infrastructures, and ISM systems.
