Skyworks Unveils Range Power Detectors for 3G/LTE

Skyworks Solutions introduced high dynamic range power detectors for smart phones and data cards.

Skyworks' RF detectors are compatible with various baseband architectures and accommodate multiple 3G and LTE band combinations. The devices have been designed to work with the SKY7770X and SKY7772X series of 3G and 4G power amplifiers to expand the compatibility of the integrated daisy chain coupler for the majority of basebands and transceivers.

Skyworks' SKY77002 is manufactured with Skyworks' gallium arsenide hetero junction bipolar transistor process. The detector circuit technology is optimally aligned for transceivers that require external detection for power control. Exceptional temperature and voltage compensation maintains accuracy over extreme operating conditions.
