Skyworks BDS/GNSS/GPS Front-end Modules
Available from Skyworks Solutions Inc.
Designed with cost and space savings in mind, Skyworks Front-End Modules combine the company's industry-leading power amplifier (PA), low noise amplifiers (LNA) and switch functions into single low-cost, laminate-based multi-chip modules (MCM). Key features of the transmit FEMs include multi-band / multi-mode power amplifiers, current sensing power control, high-linearity transmit/receive switches and all associated filtering, duplexing and control functions. Further, the new module requires no external matching components, accelerating time-to-market.
Manufactured using Skyworks' proprietary heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) power amplifier process and low-loss pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (PHEMT) switch technologies, Skyworks' Front-End Modules deliver superior handset talk and standby time.
