High-power Bluetooth power amplifier targets Wi-Fi enabled mobile devices

Skyworks has introduced a new product category of high-power Bluetooth power amplifiers for mobile applications targeting Wi-Fi-enabled smartphones, tablets and other portable devices.

The SKY85018-11 is an integrated device that is particularly suited for improving Bluetooth® connectivity ranges, says Skyworks. This type of connectivity is required for music streaming.  Multiple output power ranges and a bypass mode ensure that the SKY85018-11 is reliable for high performance devices, for the audio experience. The amplifier is offered in a small footprint package, measuring 1.5 x 1.5mm and can run directly off battery, removing the need for a low voltage dropout (LDO) voltage regulator.
