Switch performs in GSM quad-band receive and diversity-antenna applications
Skyworks introduced a 0.1 – 2.7 GHz SP4T switch with integrated logic decoder for GSM quad-band receive and diversity-antenna applications. The small form factor (2 mm x 2 mm) SKY13388-465LF is controlled with 1.8-V logic and is appropriate for 3G handsets and data cards. The switch delivers low-insertion loss, does not require any DC blocks or external components for operation, and its high-compression point leads to better linearity, lower-harmonic generation, and less stringent harmonic filtering. In addition, its low-current consumption enables lower current draw from the battery, and longer operation between battery charges.
