Exposure to maximum rating conditions for extended periods may reduce device reliability. There is no damage to device with only one parameter set at the limit and all other
parameters set at or below their nominal values. Exceeding any of the limits listed here may result in permanent damage to the device.
CAUTION: Although this device is designed to be as robust as possible, Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage this device. This device
must be protected at all times from ESD. Static charges may easily produce potentials of several kilovolts on the human body
or equipment, which can discharge without detection. Industry-standard ESD precautions should be used at all times.
Technical Description
Electrical and Mechanical Specifications
The SKY65094-360LF is a single stage, low-noise PA that
operates with a single 5 V power supply connected through an RF
choke (inductor L1) to the output signal (pin 7). The bias current is
set by the on-chip active bias composed of current mirror and
reference voltage transistors, which allow excellent gain tracking
over temperature and voltage variations. The device is externally
RF matched using surface mount components to facilitate
operation over a frequency range of 824 to 849 MHz.
Signal pin assignments and functional pin descriptions are
described in Table 1. The absolute maximum ratings of the
SKY65094-360LF are provided in Table 2. The recommended
operating conditions are specified in Table 3 and electrical
specifications are provided in Table 4 (general specifications),
Table 5 (698-716 MHz), Table 6 (777-798 MHz), Table 7 (824849 MHz), and Table 8 (880-915 MHz).
Typical performance characteristics of the SKY65094-360LF for
the 824 to 849 MHz frequency range are illustrated in Figures 3
through 10.

Evaluation Board Description
The Skyworks SKY65094-360LF Evaluation Board is used to test
the performance of the SKY65094-360LF PA driver. An assembly
drawing for the Evaluation Board is shown in Figure 11 and the
layer detail is provided in Figure 12. The layer detail physical
characteristics are noted in Figure 13.
Capacitor C10 provides DC bias decoupling for the output stage
collector voltage. Pins 2 and 7 are the RF input and output
signals, respectively. External DC blocking is required on the input
and output, but can be implemented as part of the RF matching
circuit. Pin 1 (GND) and the center ground pad provide the DC and
RF ground.
Figure 10. Noise Figure vs Ferquency Over Temperature
1. Connect a 5.0 V supply to the VCC pin and 3.3 V to the
ENABLE pin of the J3 header (see Evaluation Board assembly
drawing in Figure 11 and schematic diagram in Figure 14). If
available, enable the current limiting function of the power
supply to 500 mA.
2. Connect a signal generator to the RF signal input port. Set it to
the desired RF frequency at a power level of –15 dBm or less
to the Evaluation Board but do NOT enable the RF signal.
3. Connect a spectrum analyzer to the RF signal output port.
4. Enable the power supply.
5. Enable the RF signal.
6. Take measurements.
Circuit Design Configurations
The following design considerations are general in nature and
must be followed regardless of final use or configuration.
1. Paths to ground should be made as short as possible.
2. The ground pad of the SKY65094-360LF power amplifier has
special electrical and thermal grounding requirements. This
pad is the main thermal conduit for heat dissipation. Since the
circuit board acts as the heat sink, it must shunt as much
heat as possible from the amplifier. As such, design the
connection to the ground pad to dissipate the maximum
wattage produced to the circuit board. Multiple vias to the
grounding layer are required.
NOTE: Junction temperature (Tj) of the device increases with a
poor connection to the slug and ground. This reduces the
lifetime of the device.
A suggested matching circuit is shown in Figure 14 with
component values for the SKY65094-360LF Evaluation Board
listed in Table 9.
Testing Procedure
Use the following procedure to set up the SKY65094-360LF
Evaluation Board for testing:
CAUTION: If any of the output signals exceed the rated
maximum values, the SKY65094-360LF Evaluation
Board can be permanently damaged.
Package and Handling Information
Instructions on the shipping container label regarding exposure to
moisture after the container seal is broken must be followed.
