New Product Announcement:
New High Gain LNA for Small Cell, Cellular 5G NR,
and Base Station Applications

Skyworks is pleased to introduce the SKY67181-396LF, a high gain, low noise amplifier (LNA). Designed to meet the challenging requirements of cellular LTE and 5G NR infrastructure applications, this LNA features ultra low-noise figure, high gain, and operates over a wide range of frequencies. Featuring an ultra-compact 2 x 2 mm plastic surface mount package to reduce PCB board space, SKY67181-396LF is pin-to-pin compatible with the previously released SKY67183-396LF and SKY67189-396LF. These LNAs are ideal for 2G/3G/4G/5G TDD and FDD infrastructure applications, including small cell, massive MIMO, and macro base stations.

Key Benefits:
High gain which may eliminate a gain stage from the design
Very low noise figure
Exceptional linearity and superior gain flatness
Wide frequency of operation, supporting 2.3 – 5 GHz signals
Fast turn on/off time to enable fast 5G TDD switching
2 x 2 mm ultra-compact packaging
