Skyworks has introduced two new front-end modules (FEMs) for high-power Wi-Fi 6E networking applications, including indoor and outdoor networking, and wireless video streaming.
The SKY85784-11 features extremely low EVM floor while simultaneously providing ultra-high linear output power that can meet the regulatory limit, therefore improving overall range coverage. The SKY85780-11, a high-performance FEM, claims to be the only product on the market to maximize distance and throughput within FCC maximum output power limit.
Both highly integrated FEMs incorporate a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) transmit/receive (T/R) switch, a high-gain low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass, and a PA intended for high-power Wi-Fi 6E applications and systems. The device is provided in a compact, 24-pin 3- x 5-mm package, which can reduce the front-end board space by more than 50 percent.
Recently, Skyworks announced that its high-performance Wi-Fi 6E front-end modules have been designed into the first ultra-fast Wi-Fi 6E gaming router from ASUS. Utilizing the FCC’s newly allocated 6~7 GHz extended band to double the capacity of traditional Wi-Fi, the Wi-Fi 6E standard enables faster connectivity and supports an increased number of connected users meeting the unprecedented demand for increased video conferencing, online gaming, streaming TV, AR/VR, home security cameras and online exercise apps. An established leader in the networking market, ASUS is the first to deliver the increased and wider bandwidth 160 MHz channels of Wi-Fi 6E with its ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 gaming router.
