New front-end module for WLAN and LAA
Skyworks has introduced the SKY85774-11, a highly integrated 5 GHz front-end module (FEM) that supports simultaneous WLAN and licensed assisted access (LAA) protocols for mobile smartphones and tablets. This advanced module incorporates a power amplifier, low-noise amplifier with bypass, and an SPDT transmit/receive switch.
Its high performance power amplifier increases range and saves power while eliminating external devices and reducing PCB area.
The SKY85774-11 comes in a compact 20-pin 2.2x3 package and is currently being leveraged across leading mobile connectivity reference designs.
