The SKY85803 is a complete 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN RF Front-End Module (FEM) that provides all the functionality of the Power Amplifiers (PAs), filtering, power detector, transmit/receive (T/R) switch, diplexers, and associated matching.
The device provides a complete 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz WLAN RF solution from the output of the transceiver to the antenna in an ultra-compact form factor. The SKY85803 delivers < 2% EVM at rated AC power, which meets the stringent linearity conditions of the 802.11ac standard.
Designed for ease of use, all RF ports are matched to 50 Ω to simplify PCB layout and the interface to the transceiver. The device also includes a transmitter power detector with 20 dB of dynamic range for each transmit chain. Each PA has a separate digital enable control for transmitter on/off control. The power ramp rise/fall time is < 0.4 μs.
The SKY85803 also provides a notch filter from 3.260 to 3.267 GHz and 3.28 to 3.89 GHz before the input of each 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz PA, respectively.
The SKY85803 is manufactured in a compact, 4 x 4 mm, 24-pin Land Grid Array (LGA) package.
