RF switches prepare for smart home, lighting and energy

Two RF switches from Skyworks are designed for IoT applications, including the connected home.  In addition, the SKY13587-378LF, is a pHEMT GaAs SPDT switch, which can be used for transmit and receive switching in industrial, lighting and smart energy applications, as well as 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN networks that operate at 2.4 and 5.8GHz.

The SKY13588-460LF is a CMOS silicon-on-insulator SP3T switch made for antenna selection in Wi-Fi applications in IoT systems.

The switches’ operating temperature range is up to 105°C. They also boast high isolation and low insertion loss, suited to low-power transmit/receive applications. Positive voltage control provides low current and optimal efficiency for battery-operated IoT applications and the broadband frequency ranges from 20Mhz to 6.0GHz (SKY13587-378LF) to 0.1 to 6.0GHz (SKY13588-460LF).

Both are available in compact MLPD/QFN packages (six- or 12pin), saving application board space and design cost.
