While LTE/4G offers consumers much higher data rates (up to 300 Mbits/s) compared to UMTS/3G, LTE smartphones are more complex because they need more antennas, are used for multiple cellular and connectivity frequencies, and require additional switches and duplexers. BGS8x2 and BGU8x1 LTE LNAs increase the receive sensitivity of LTE main and diversity receivers by offering system-optimized gain, low noise figure, and high third-order linearity.
