About Skyworks’ Front-End Solutions

  • The SKY77354 is the smallest GPRS/EDGE power amplifier module (PAM) designed to be compatible with fixed gain linear EDGE platforms. When combined with Skyworks’ latest 3G and 4G PAs, this architecture offers the highest performance in the smallest possible size for any LTE modem implementation.
  • The SKY77558 is a linear fixed gain EDGE FEM designed in a very compact form factor. When combined with the Skyworks’ newest high efficiency PAs, it offers a cost competitive solution with a significantly lower current consumption when compared to the prevailing multimode, multiband implementation.
  • The SKY77733 (Bands XIII/XIV) and SKY77737 (Bands XII/XVII) PAMs are the first LTE solutions based on Skyworks’ newest high efficiency PAs.
  • The SKY77761, SKY77762, SKY77764, SKY77765 and SKY77768 PAMs are solutions for Bands I, II, IV, V and VIII that are based on Skyworks’ newest high efficiency PAs.
  • The SKY77619 is the smallest, most integrated and highest performance, multimode PAM leveraging Skyworks’ newest high efficiency PAs and supporting next generation smartphones and tablets.
