The devices are designed to operate over the complete cellular frequency
range including support for Band 42 and Band 43 (up to 3.8GHz), allowing
customers to use one part for all band requirements. They also feature low
insertion loss for higher transmission efficiency and excellent harmonic
performance with improved receiver sensitivity. The SKY13581-676LF,
SKY13582-676LF and SKY13626-685LF share a common layout and are pin-to-pin,
footprint compatible, enabling faster development times.
