RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Skyworks Introduces Breakthrough Low Noise Amplifiers at MTT-S 2013
- Delivers Industry's Lowest Noise Figure Supporting
Military and Industrial Applications
SEATTLE, June 4, 2013 – Skyworks Solutions,
Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad
range of end markets, today unveiled a portfolio of low noise amplifiers (LNAs) that provide
best-in-class noise figure, a critical component to boosting weak incoming signals for today's
4G wireless infrastructure as well as diverse broad market systems including GPS, broadband,
military and satellite communications. OEMs can now leverage a single Skyworks LNA to
address all cellular, ISM and military bands, enabling unconditional stability and simple band
specific external matching across a wide voltage range.
newest LNAs are achieving unprecedented performance levels, while enabling a multitude of high
performance base station, cellular repeater and remote radio head platforms,” said David Stasey,
vice president and general manager of analog solutions at Skyworks. “Leveraging our analog
design expertise, IP and scale, Skyworks is delivering highly differentiated solutions and creating
competitive advantages for our customers.”
About Skyworks' Ultra Low Noise
is a high performance gallium arsenide, pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor LNA
with integrated active bias and very low noise figure (as low as 0.25 dB). The advanced
0.25um enhancement mode process provides broadband return loss, high gain, very low noise and
high amplifier linearity. The internal active bias circuitry provides stable performance
over temperature and process variation. The device allows users to externally adjust supply
current to optimize linearity and provides best-in-class noise figure.
The new LNA operates
over the broad frequency range of 0.7 to 3.8 GHz. Four band-specific external tuning networks
with common printed circuit board layouts are available to cover the full 3,000 megahertz bandwidth.
This device is ideally suited for both macro and micro cellular base stations, repeaters, remote
radio heads, tower mounted amplifiers, L&S band military communication, global positioning
transceivers and proprietary radio networks. The LNA is manufactured in a compact 2 x
2 millimeter, 8-pin, dual flat no-lead Skyworks Green package and four band specific evaluation
boards are available for customer testing.
Pricing and Availability
Skyworks' new LNAs are currently available for both sampling and production.
