Skyworks expands antenna aperture tuning switches

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has expanded its antenna tuning product portfolio by adding several new high-performance solutions.

Skyworks' latest antenna tuning offerings address the design challenges that mobile device manufacturers face as smartphones become thinner, leverage revolutionary case materials and integrate more cellular bands. By optimizing radiated efficiency, Skyworks says that its antenna aperture tuners enable higher data throughput and smaller footprints, minimizing dropped calls.

"Cellular band proliferation in smartphones increases complexity and requires highly sophisticated RF solutions," notes David Stasey, general manager & VP of diversified analog solutions. "With our newest suite of antenna tuners, Skyworks is once again pushing the performance envelope and enabling breakthrough front-end performance as well as size reductions and cost savings." 

The firm's new antenna tuning switches provide low Ron for higher efficiency, transfer more power to the antenna, offer low Coff to deliver accurate and consistent tuning results, enable high Vpeak for improved radiated spurious emission (RSE) performance and integrate GPIO-control for ease of use. To simplify the design process and accelerate time-to-market, Skyworks assists with antenna modeling, data simulation, design and layout optimization, and onsite support to help customers leverage these advanced antenna tuning products into their platforms.

The products are shipped in compact 10-pin 1.1mm x 1.5mm x 0.5mm quad-flat no-lead (QFN) RoHS-compliant plastic packages. The common footprint of the devices allows one layout to be utilized across multiple designs.

The new devices are available in the following configurations: SP2T (SKY19243-686LF); SP3T (SKY19244-686LF); and SP4T (SKY19245-686LF). 

The new antenna aperture tuners are available now for sampling and production.
