High Power FEM Supports Automotive Telematics

The Skyworks Solutions SKYA21043 AEC-Q104 (Grade 2), 5 GHz FEM incorporates a SPDT, high-gain LNA with bypass, and PA for high-power 802.11p applications and systems.

RFMW announces design and sales support for a highly-integrated, 5 GHz front-end module (FEM). The Skyworks Solutions SKYA21043 incorporates a 5 GHz single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) transmit/receive (T/R) switch, a 5 GHz high-gain low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass, and a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA) intended for high-power 802.11p applications and systems. Qualified to AEC-Q104 (Grade 2), the SKYA21043 meets rugged reliability requirements for automotive applications including vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) covering smart antennas, compensators, and roadside units for automotive infrastructure, backhaul and cellular small cells. The device boasts +29 dBm output power, making it one of the highest power solutions on the market today. Its compact, conformally shielded package size reduces front-end board space by >50 percent and is supported by the automotive PPAP process. With fully matched input and output, the device supports a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +105°C for high ambient temp rooftop antennas.
