Integrated LNA + switches for smartphones
In this case there were several challenges: low noise figure and low power, using as less external components as possible, but also the SiGe BiCMOS technology challenged us to find a perfect switch.
For the verification and validation we use our own measuring equipment which is correlated with customers equipment.
To validate this design we have designed a multi-input/output LNA evaluation board.
Our customer won design-ins at several well-known smartphone manufacturers.
