Wi-Fi 6 front-end module comes in 3x3 mm form factor
The SKY85726-11 front end module (FEM) from Skyworks Solutions is in stock at Mouser Electronics. The 5GHz WLAN device is ideal for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)-based Internet of Things (IoT) systems, offering a fully integrated solution in a compact 3 × 3 mm form factor.
The FEM integrates a 5GHz power amplifier (PA), single-pole double-throw (SPDT) transmit-receive switch, and low noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass mode into a single 16-pin QFN device.
LNA and PA disable functions ensure low leakage current in off mode, and an integrated power detector provides closed-loop power control within the system.
The device offers excellent linearity with high gain and 50 dB antenna for isolation
Mouser is also stocking the Skyworks SKY85726-11EK1 evaluation board, which includes SMA connectors and pinouts to help engineers demonstrate the capabilities of the SKY85726-11 FEM.
