Linear Power Amplifiers
Skyworks introduces two 2.4 GHz linear power amplifiers for wireless LAN applications. The AP157-317 is capable of supplying 27 dBm output power with 802.11b modulation at 11 Mbit/s, while the AP163-317 supports 23.5 dBm output power. The AP157-317 and AP163-317 deliver high-end performance over the 1.8 - 2.5 MHz frequency range. Complementing the output power is the amplifier's 31 dBm maximum saturated output power. The products also have small signal gains of 18 dB. The amplifiers work at 2.7 V to 4.5 V. Each are packaged in a 16-pin 4 × 4 mm micro lead package.
