Mouser Electronics has recently started offering the SKY68031-11 multi-band RF IoT front-end module from Skyworks Solutions.
The low-profile module supports LTE-M and NB-IoT transceiver platforms, offering output power up to +23.5 dBm optimized to support LTE for 1 RB to 6 RB.
The Skyworks Solutions SKY68031-11 module, available from Mouser, integrates the entire RF front end necessary for an LTE multi-band radio operating in low-band (5, 8, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 26, 28, 85) and mid-band (1, 2, 3, 4, 25, 39, 66, 70) frequencies.
This feature includes a broadband power amplifier (PA) with bias controller, transmit low-pass harmonic filter, antenna switch, and MIPI RFFE controller.
The module’s PA load-line is optimized for high efficiency while simultaneously meeting 3GPP ACLR, and emissions mask specifications with LTE up to 6 RB.
The integrated low-pass filter rejects the PA and transceiver harmonics while at the same time minimizing any post-PA loss for an optimized transmit current consumption.
Out-of-band emissions performance is emphasized by the design to be 3GPP-compliant for low-band and mid-band frequencies.
