Skyworks Supplies LTE PA module for Samsung's USB Modem

Skyworks Solutions supplied an LTE power amplifier (PA) module for Samsung's new 4G USB modem -- the world's first LTE-commercialized device. Samsung's USB modem incorporates Samsung's in-house developed LTE modem chip supporting the 2.6 gigahertz (GHz) band for LTE service. The LTE modem complies with the latest 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) LTE Release 8 (Rel-8) standard.

Skyworks' SKY77706 LTE PA module, which is designed for multiple handset and data card applications, is a fully matched, surface mount module developed for LTE/EUTRAN applications. This small and efficient module packs full coverage of LTE FDD Band VII into a single compact package. The device meets the stringent spectral linearity requirements of LTE modulation with QPSK/16QAM modulations from 1.4 megahertz (MHz) to 20 MHz bandwidth and full or partial resource block allocations with high power added efficiency (PAE).
