Skyworks launches front-end modules for Wi-Fi 6 applications
Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has launched the SKY85334-11 and SKY85750-11, 2.4GHz and 5GHz front-end modules (FEMs) respectively, as the latest additions to its portfolio of FEMs designed for growing retail, carrier and enterprise Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) applications.
The modules offer what is claimed to be best-in-class linearity, power dissipation and efficiency for access points, routers and gateways where regulatory, thermals or Power-over-Ethernet limitations demand low current consumption.
Packaged in a compact, 16-pin 3mm x 3mm land grid array (LGA), the highly integrated FEMs incorporate switching, low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass and power amplifier (PA).
