Skyworks Unveils High Reliability LNA's for Military and Space Applications

Skyworks has unveiled its latest high-reliability low noise amplifiers for demanding military and space applications that have stringent operating requirements. The SKYH22001 and SKYH22002 are hermetically sealed, broadband low-noise and impedance-matched amplifiers that can function in harsh environments and be leveraged in a multitude of communication platforms. With all peripheral components integrated into an optimized ceramic QFN package, these devices simplify the design process and reduce board space while delivering robust performance for next generation aerospace and defense applications such as satellites and avionics systems. 

According to an estimate from BCC Research, the global satellite communications market, one segment of the aerospace and defense industry, is estimated to reach nearly $7.5 billion by 2022, up from nearly $4.6 billion in 2017, or a compounded annual growth rate of 11 percent. 

Skyworks provides up screened and hermetically sealed high-reliability optocouplers, RF diodes and RFICs including multi-chip modules (MCM) as part of its portfolio. Product up screening includes the equivalent of Class B and Class S of MIL-PRF-38535, Class H and Class K of MIL-PRF-38534, and JANS, JANTX and JANTXV level of MIL-PRF-19500. Select solutions include: 

  • SKYH22001 – Hermetically sealed, integrated broadband low-noise amplifier with -55° to +125°C performance. Internally tuned for 700 MHz to 2.7 GHz and tunable up to 3.8 GHz
  • SKYH22002 – Hermetically sealed, integrated gain block amplifier with -55° to +125°C performance. Internally tuned for 700 MHz to 2.7 GHz and tunable from 0.1 to 6 GHz
