Skyworks Solutions (Woburn, MA) has unveiled a highly integrated, 5 GHz front-end module for wireless connectivity, Bluetooth, and mobile applications that exceeds 802.11n system requirements. The SKY65535-11 integrates a power amplifier, a low noise amplifier with bypass, and a single-pole-double-throw, transmit/receive switch in a 16-pin, 2.5 x 2.5 mm, quad-flat-no-lead package. Features include:
- Direct connection to the battery with a 3.6 V nominal supply voltage that removes the need for regulators and associated components.
- Enable/disable function that enables power savings during off mode.
- Integrated power detector with 20 dB of dynamic range that delivers closed-loop power control within the system.
