Front-End Modules

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

Skyworks’ SkyOne™ is a family of scalable Front-end-modules (FEMs) that integrate all of the high-performance RF and analog content between a transceiver and antenna. This platform supports carrier aggregation, additional frequency bands, and industry-leading baseboards with MIPI® interfaces, and the SkyOne® Mini is designed for those looking for the full functionality it provides, but at a reduced cost and size.

The SKY66101-11 RF and SE2435L are front-end modules (FEMs) designed specifically for industrial, scientific, medical (ISM) band applications with operation in the 902-928 MHz, or 860-930 MHz frequency range. These devices feature a fully matched 50 Ω input and output, and RF blocks that operate over a 2.0-4.8 V range for use in a wide range of battery powered applications.

The SKY85817-11 is a highly integrated, dual-band front-end module (FEM) that supports simultaneous 5G WLAN and licensed assisted access (LAA) systems. This FEM incorporates a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA), a 5 GHz low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass supporting 5G WLAN and LAA simultaneous RX reception, and a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) transmit/receive (T/R) switch.

Qorvo presents a new series of high-linearity 2.5 GHz Front-End Modules (FEMs) built for automotive Wi-Fi applications, 802.11b/g/n, and Bluetooth® systems. These devices feature integrated b/g/n power amplifiers, directional power detectors, RX balun, and TX filtering. Each FEM contains an ultra-small form factor and integrated matching that greatly reduces the number of external components and layout area in the customer application.

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.

Skyworks offers the SKY58277-11 Sky5 Front-End Module (FEM) for LTE and NR is a new addition to the Skyworks Sky5 portfolio of 5G technology products. The included 30-pad surface mount (SMT) module consists of PA blocks, input and output ports matched to 50 ohms, a MIPI standard digital control block, single-ended filter, antenna, and Tx-Rx switches, and a low noise amplifier (LNA).

Skyworks DRx front-end-modules have been designed to improve receiver sensitivity and data throughput in 3G/4G multimode cellular tablets and handsets, while also reducing Rx noise figure. The FEMs are comprised of low loss RF switches, as well as receive SAW filters and low noise amplifiers.

The SKY53761-11 is a highly integrated LNA filter module that enables users to support 5G New Radio (NR) bands in the 3.3 to 4.2 GHz frequency range.
