Figure 2. SKY65132 Block Diagram
The SKY65132 PA contains all of the needed RF matching and DC
biasing circuits. The device also provides an output power
detector voltage and the ability to switch the PA on or off with a
simple control signal.
The SKY65132 is a three-stage, HBT InGaP device optimized for
high linearity and power efficiency. These features make the
device suitable for wideband digital applications, where PA
linearity and power consumption are of critical importance (e.g.,
The device has been characterized with the highest specified data
rates for 802.11b (11 Mbps) and 802.11g (54 Mbps). Under these
stringent test conditions, the device exhibits excellent spectral
purity and power efficiency.
Package and Handling Information
Since the device package is sensitive to moisture absorption, it is
baked and vacuum packed before shipping. Instructions on the
shipping container label regarding exposure to moisture after the
container seal is broken must be followed. Otherwise, problems
related to moisture absorption may occur when the part is
subjected to high temperature during solder assembly.
If the part is attached in a reflow oven, the temperature ramp rate
should not exceed 5 °C per second. Maximum temperature
should not exceed 225 °C and the time spent at a temperature
that exceeds 210 °C should be limited to less than 10 seconds. If
the part is manually attached, precaution should be taken to
ensure that the part is not subjected to a temperature that
exceeds 300 °C for more than 10 seconds.
For additional details on both attachment techniques, precautions,
and recommended handling procedures, refer to the Skyworks
Application Note, PCB Design and SMT Assembly/Rework
Guidelines for MCM-L Packages (document number 101752).
Additional information on standard SMT reflow profiles can also
be found in the JEDEC Standard J-STD-020B.
Production quantities of this product are shipped in a standard
tape and reel format. For packaging details, refer to the Skyworks
Application Note, Tape and Reel, document number 101568.
