Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which makes analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has launched the SKY65933-11 and SKY65943-11 as its latest GNSS low-noise amplifier (LNA) front-end modules (FEMs).

The turnkey GNSS connectivity solutions feature Skyworks’ proprietary temperature-compensated (TC-SAW) filters, are designed specifically for Internet of Things (IoT) applications including smartwatches, action cameras, drones, asset trackers and personal navigation devices, and can be easily integrated by wireless module and IoT device makers, it is claimed.

Both modules come in a compact 2.5mm x 2.5mm multi-chip module (MCM) package with surface-mount technology and offer extremely low leakage current (1μA max) ─ a key benefit for battery-powered IoT devices. They also integrate a pre- and post-filter, LNA and matching to reduce PCB area (compared with a discrete implementation) as well as a single DC supply for design flexibility and simplicity.

The SKY65933-11 and SKY65943-11 are multi-GNSS compatible, covering GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, COMPASS (BeiDou) and QZSS receiver applications in the 1559-1606MHz frequency range.
