BDS/GPS/GNSS Low-Noise Amplifier

The SKY65605-21 is a Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuit (MMIC) front-end low-noise amplifier (LNA) designed for BeiDou Satellite Navigation System/Global Positioning System/Global Navigation Satellite System (BDS/GPS/GNSS) receiver applications. The device provides high linearity, excellent gain, a high 1 dB input compression point (IP1dB), and a superior noise figure (NF).

The SKY65605-21 is optimized to operate from 1.559 to 1.606 GHz, which makes it ideal for BDS/GPS/GNSS radio receiver applications.

The SKY65605-21 is fabricated using advanced SiGe BiCMOS technology. The LNA uses surface-mount technology (SMT) in the form of a 0.7 x 1.1 mm Quad Flat No-Lead (QFN) package, which allows for a highly manufacturable and low-cost solution.
