Front-End Modules

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

Skyworks offers the SKY65903-11 front-end module (FEM) with an integrated low-noise amplifier (LNA) and pre- and post-filters that is ideal for GPS/GNSS/BDS receiver applications. The LNA uses surface-mount technology (SMT) in the form of a 2.5 x 2.5 mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) package, which allows for a highly manufacturable and low-cost module solution.

The SKY68000-31 is a hybrid, dual-band multi-chip RF front-end (RFFE) module supporting cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT (half-duplex system) transceiver platforms. The module integrates the entire RF front end necessary for an LTE dual-band radio operating in Band 13 and Band 4 including Rx SAW filters, dual-band PA with bias controller, Tx low-pass harmonic filter, antenna switch, and MIPI RFFE controller.

The SKY66119-11 is a 460 MHz transmit/receive (T/R) front-end module designed to provide a complete T/R train with T/R switches. Mounted in a 28-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 infrastructure, ISM systems, and range extenders.

The QPF4010 is a high frequency, high performance MMIC front-end module targeted for 5G - n258 at 26 GHz phased array base stations and terminals. It is fabricated on Qorvo's 90 nm pHEMT production process and combines a low noise high linearity LNA, a low insertion-loss high-isolation TR switch, and a high-efficiency multi-stage PA.

Avago Technologies’ ALM-1712 is a GPS front-end module that combines a low-noise amplifier (LNA) with GPS FBAR filters. The LNA uses Avago Technologies’ proprietary GaAs Enhancement-mode pHEMT process to achieve high gain with very low noise figure and high linearity.

The SKY78117 SkyOne® Ultra 2.0 is a multimode multiband front-end module (FEM) designed for optimal performance in FDD/TDD LTE-modulated handsets for bands 7, 30, 38, 40, and 41. The RF input and output ports are internally matched to 50 ohms which minimizes the need for external components.

Qorvo offers the new QPB9318 highly integrated front-end module with operation in the 2.3 – 2.8 GHz frequency range for TDD base station, wireless infrastructure, small cell BTS, and pre-5G/5G massive MIMO applications. This LNA module integrates a two-stage LNA and a high power switch in a dual-channel configuration.

The SKY65377-11 is a transmit/receive (T/R) front-end module designed to provide a complete T/R train with T/R switches. Mounted in a 28-pin, 6x6mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) surface-mount technology package, this device provides a highly manufacturable low-cost solution for many transmit/receive applications.
