Antenna Switch Module: Introduction
Antenna Switch Modules (ASM) support telecommunication-related features in smartphones and other network-connected wireless devices. Multi-band network-connected wireless devices are supported by these modules. These modules combine the individual transmission and receiving paths of individual frequency bands emitted by one or more antennas of Long Term Evolution (LTE), Code-Division Multiple Access (CDMA), Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service (UMTS), Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) and Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM). These small-package antenna switch modules have integrated high-powered capable switches and passive-function circuits, such as GSM-LPF, using the Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic (LTCC) technology.
Manufacturers offer antenna switch modules for GSM devices by harnessing the three-dimensional integration of LTCC technology and taking advantage of the miniature lumped element realisation of the transmission line. Developers integrate GSM Tx filters that minimise the unwanted harmonic signal transmissions. Currently, the developers of antenna switch modules are offering ASM solutions for dual-mode and triple-mode data cards, tablets and smartphones. These upgraded devices find several applications in the telecommunication industry. The applications range from low-cost third generation handsets to HSPA +/LTE-enabled data-centric devices, such as high-grade data dongles, smartphones and tablets.
