Skyworks’ newest family of compact, high performance RF front-end modules (FEMs) is specifically designed for LPWAN – supporting LoRa®, SigFox and other unlicensed band technologies – as well as high-power Industrial, Scientific, Medical (ISM) applications operating in the 860-930 MHz frequency range. These new solutions deliver improved sensitivity and more than quadruple the operating range versus a standalone system-on-chip (SoC). They also occupy minimal board space and consume low power, making them ideal for IoT and industrial platforms including sensors, beacons, smartwatches, thermostats, wireless cameras, medical pendants and smoke and CO detectors.
Measurement Setup For Phase Noise Test At Frequencies Above 50 GHz
Recent enhancements in semiconductor technologies requires more of the microwave frequency range beyond 50 GHz, especially in wideband applications such as 802.11ad, microwave links, or automotive RADAR. Low phase noise is essential for these applications to work properly, and accurate measurement of phase noise is needed to improve the performance. However, test setups at these frequencies become difficult, especially when cross correlation of two receive paths is needed to suppress additional phase noise.
Introduction To RF Matrix Switch Types And Functionality
There are many types of RF matrix switches with configurations that distribute RF signals in very different fashions. This app note describes the functionality of these types of switches, their advantages and disadvantage, and how to choose the best switch for each application.
