Skyworks introduces SKY65038-70LF LNA

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, Mass, USA has introduced a low noise amplifier (LNA) that operates in the 250 megahertz (MHz) to 6 gigahertz (GHz) range, the SKY65038-70LF.

The SKY65038 is a general purpose, broadband amplifier fabricated from Skyworks’ pHEMT process and packaged in a miniature SOT-89 package. With a low noise figure of 2 dB and high output IP3 of 40 dBm at 1.0 GHz, these devices are ideal for various transmit/receive applications. In addition, the amplifier's output impedance is 50 Ω, which enables these devices to be easily cascaded with a simple input impedance matching network, says the firm.

The new LNA is lead (Pb)-free, RoHS-compliant, and contains no antimony or halogens. A populated evaluation board is available upon request.
