Power Management IC for the SkyBlue™ System

The SKY87021-11 is a high-efficiency RF front-end power management IC for APT RF power amplifier (PA) applications in portable battery powered devices. This IC includes a high-efficiency DC-DC voltage converter capable of delivering 450 mA at 11 V with a 4.5 V reference supply to provide a user-programmable RF PA APT supply for a 2.5 V to 5.5 V input range.

The SKY87021-11 also provides an additional 4.5 V bias supply for RF PA operation. This bias voltage output can supply load currents up to 3 mA and is available whenever the device is enabled. When the device is disabled, the 4.5 V bias supply is shut down. This device has over-voltage, over-current, shorted circuit, and thermal shutdown protection to protect the device and system under adverse operating conditions.

The SKY87021-11 is capable of supporting HPUE front-end modules and is controlled with a MIPI RFFE 2.0 compliant interface with 8-bit output voltage programming resolution.

The SKY87021-11 is available in a 16-pin, 1.991 mm x 1.991 mm Chip Scale Package (CSP).
