Integrating the directional coupler, a family of single and dual-band WCDMA power amplifiers (PA) from Skyworks Solutions is purported to reduce the phone board footprint and bill-of-material costs. The amplifiers are offered in 10 bands, and range from 824 MHz to 1980 MHz. The five 3 mm x 3 mm solutions are fully matched, 10-pad surface mount modules. The two 4 x 5 mm dual band PA modules include most of the external passive components. The single gallium arsenide (GaAs) microwave monolithic integrated circuit (MMIC) contains all active circuitry in the module.
