2 GHz, 256 QAM Low-Noise Amplifier

The SKY65971-11 is an ultra Low-Noise Amplifier (LNA) intended for 2 GHz, 256 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) wireless receiver applications. Its industry-leading Noise Figure (NF), together with high linearity, make it ideal as a first-stage LNA in 256 QAM Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) radios.

Operating with a single supply voltage, the SKY65971-11 consumes only 13 mA of current. The device includes a bypass mode for near field applications and to save power when the receiver is inactive.

The tiny package footprint of the SKY65971-11, requiring only four external components, enables the industry’s smallest PCB area needed to implement a 2 GHz LNA.
