The SKY85774-11 from Skyworks is a highly integrated front end module (FEM) that supports simultaneous 5 GHz WLAN and licensed assisted access (LAA) systems. This FEM features a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA), a low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass supporting 5 GHz WLAN and LAA simultaneous RX reception, and an SPDT transmit/receive (T/R) switch.
The SKY85774-11 provides 19 dBm of output power and has a transmit gain of 31 dB. On the receive side, it provides a gain of 12.5 dB and has a receive bypass loss of 8.5 dB. It requires a 3.7 V supply voltage.
The FEM is available in a 20-pin package that measures 2.2 × 3 × 0.7 mm and is suitable for Wi-Fi-enabled handsets, tablets, and mobile/portable systems, System-in-Package (SIP) modules for embedded systems, and 802.11ac with LAA support smartphones and tablets applications.
