Skyworks Solutions, Inc. has introduced a pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) gallium arsenide (GaAs) integrated circuit (IC) SP3T switch for 0.1 to 6.0 GHz. The SKY13317-373LF symmetric switch offers low insertion loss and high isolation with a 44% reduction in size than SKY13309-370LF. Featuring higher overall transmit efficiency and linearity, less board space is used with greater design/layout flexibility, equating to a small and thin end product. Appropriate for high volume, consumer products - end users will also discover better linearity and a clearer signal. The SKY13317-373LF is currently being used with wireless local area network (WLAN) and Bluetooth® combo chipsets.
