Low-noise amplifier provides 35-45dB of gain
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 2-stage, high-gain, low-noise amplifier from Skyworks Solutions. The SKY67161-306LF provides 35-45dB of gain with a noise figure of only 0.3dB. Operating from 600 to 1100MHz, the Skyworks SKY67161-306LF’s active bias design enables high linearity coupled with unconditional stability for cellular infrastructure, repeaters and small cell applications. Gain is easily controlled with inter-stage matching to achieve desired gain with minimal impact to the device NF and linearity. Output P1dB is 24.5dBm from a 5V supply drawing 160mA. The Skyworks SKY67161-306LF is available in a 4x4x0.9mm QFN package.
