Skyworks launches low-power LNA for GNSS IoT applications
Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has launched the SKY65623-682LF low-noise amplifier (LNA) for applications including wearables, asset trackers, navigation devices, and action cameras.
The discrete LNA is optimized to operate at 1559-1606MHz, has a very low current (1mA @ 1.8V supply) and a single power supply (1.5-3.6V range) for design flexibility and simplicity. The broad frequency range spans GPS L1, GLONASS, Galileo and Compass navigation systems, and minimizes external components, reducing the bill of materials for OEMs.
The SKY65623-682LF comes in a compact form factor (5L QFN 0.8mm x 0.8mm package), suitable for low-power Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
