Video: GNSS Low-noise Amplifier FEMs with Integrated Pre- and Post-filters

23 August 2018

Skyworks is pleased to unveil the SKY65933-11 and SKY65943-11, the latest GNSS low-noise amplifier (LNA) front-end modules (FEMs) integrating Skyworks’ proprietary TC-SAW filters. These solutions are designed specifically for IoT applications including smartwatches, action cameras, drones, asset trackers and personal navigation devices and are ideal for wireless module and IoT device manufacturers since they provide a turnkey GNSS connectivity solution in a compact form factor.

Both solutions offer:

  • Integrated pre- and post-filter, LNA and matching to reduce PCB area versus a discrete implementation
  • Single DC supply for design flexibility and simplicity
  • Multi-GNSS compatibility to cover GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, COMPASS (BeiDou) and QZSS receiver applications in the 1,559 to 1,606 MHz frequency range
  • Extremely low leakage current (1 uA max) benefitting battery powered IoT devices
  • Highly manufacturable and low-cost surface-mount technology (SMT) in a 2.5 x 2.5 mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) package


• Fully integrates all functional blocks, no external components required Source: SkyworksSource: Skyworks

• Supply range: 1.5 to 2.85 V

• Package: 16 L 2.5 x 2.5 mm


• Exceptional out-of-band rejection and P1dB compression point

• Supply range: 1.62 to 3.3 V

• Package: 10 L 2.5 x 2.5 mm
