SKY85330-11

Skyworks’ SKY85330-11 is an 802.11b/g/n 256 QAM WLAN RF front-end module (FEM) providing all the functionality of a fully matched power amplifier (PA), power detector, low-noise amplifier (LNA), and single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch. This FEM is ideal for use in, 802.11ac set-top boxes, networking, and personal computer systems, PC cards, PCMCIA cards, mini-cards, and half mini-cards, and WLAN enabled wireless video systems.

The SKY85330-11 is designed to offer a complete 2.4 GHz WLAN RF solution from the output of the transceiver to the antenna, and from the antenna to the input of the transceiver. The LNA increases the receive sensitivity of embedded solutions, and the included transmitter power detector provides 20 dB of dynamic range, and a digital enable control for transmitter power ramp on/off control. The device is housed in an ultra-compact, 16-pin 2.5 x 2.5 mm Quad Flat No-Lead (QFN) package.

Additional features include:

  • Fully-matched input and output
  • LNA with integrated bypass mode
  • High performance SP3T switch to support Bluetooth/WiFi functions
  • Integrated positive slope power detector
  • Transmit gain: 32 dB
  • Receive gain: 16 dB
