Skyworks launches dual 2.4GHz front-end module supporting simultaneous Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and LAA support
Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has launched the SKY5-5242-11, a dual 2.4GHz, 802.11ax high-linearity, high-efficiency front-end module (FEM) designed for Wi-Fi 6-enabled devices including handsets, tablets and mobile devices supporting WLAN and Bluetooth protocols.
Building on Skyworks’ portfolio of products for 5G applications, the highly integrated FEM includes two transmit and receive chains, an extremely low-EVM floor power amplifier, low-noise amplifier with bypass, and a single-pole triple-throw (SP3T) antenna switch. The three transmit modes for high linearity, high efficiency and low gain provide optimal performance.
