Skyworks launches high-linearity Sky5 switch for high-performance aperture tuning
Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has introduced the SKY59272-707LF, a single-pole, single-throw (4xSPST) switch designed for antenna tuning applications that require ultra-low OFF-capacitance and low ON-resistance.
The device offers what is claimed to be excellent performance and ultra-high linearity for smartphone applications operating in the 5G, LTE or GSM band space, where high-performance aperture tuning is required.
In addition, an integrated MIPI logic controller and 4xSPST topology provides the flexibility to tune multiple bands on a single antenna, which is optimal for carrier aggregation and dual connectivity.
The SKY59272-707LF builds on Skyworks’ portfolio of products for 5G applications.
