Skyworks' Front-end Module for ISM and Connected Home Applications

January 30, 2017

Skyworks is pleased to introduce the SKY66105-11, a new high performance, highly integrated RF front-end module (FEM) designed for high power Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) and Connected Home applications operating within the 902 to 931 MHz frequency band.  This FCC-compliant module integrates harmonic filters and shielding, making it an ideal design choice for sensors, smart meters (water, gas, electric) and machine-to-machine uses.

The SKY66105-11 features 30 dBm Pout which maximizes range while staying within FCC regulatory limits. The module’s single-ended 50 Ohm transmit/receive interface offers a reduced bill of materials and includes fast ON/OFF time (1-2 µsec), which results in a reduction in current and enables rapid timing and multi-protocol arbitration. The RF blocks operate over a wide supply voltage range (2.0 to 4.8 V) for battery-powered applications. This device is manufactured in an industry-leading compact MCM 12-pin 8 mm x 6 mm x 1.05 mm package.
