Skyworks has unveiled two new GNSS low-noise amplifier (LNA) front-end modules. The SKY65933-11 and SKY65943-11 both integrate Skyworks’ proprietary TC-SAW filters.

The modules are designed specifically for internet of things (IoT) applications including smartwatches, action cameras, drones, asset trackers and personal navigation devices. athey are designed for wireless module and IoT device manufacturers, providing a turnkey GNSS connectivity solution in a compact form factor.

Both solutions offer:

  • integrated pre- and post-filter, LNA and matching to reduce PCB area versus a discrete implementation
  • single DC supply for design flexibility and simplicity
  • multi-GNSS compatibility to cover GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, COMPASS (BeiDou) and QZSS receiver applications in the 1559-1606 MHz frequency range
  • extremely low leakage current (1 uA max) benefitting battery-powered IoT devices
  • highly manufacturable and low-cost surface-mount technology (SMT) in a 2.5 x 2.5 mm multi-chip module (MCM) package.


  • Fully integrates all functional blocks, no external components required
  • Supply range: 1.5 to 2.85 V
  • Package: 16L 2.5 x 2.5 mm


  • Exceptional out-of-band rejection and P1dB compression point
  • Supply range: 1.62 to 3.3 V
  • Package: 10L 2.5 x 2.5 mm
