Front-end module for ISM and metering applications

It has been announced that Skyworks is pleased to introduce the SKY66119-11, a high performance transmit/receive front-end module (FEM) that provides range extension for Internet of Things (IoT) applications including smart metering and Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) systems.

The device’s transmit chain features +30dBm output and the receive chain features a low noise amplifier (LNA) with a 1.3dB noise figure. The module delivers 30.5dBm Pout at 400 to 500 MHz to enable more than four times the range versus standalone system-on-chip (SoC) solutions and covers multiple unlicensed bands.

It also has a fast switch on/off (less than four usec in receive mode and less than two usec in transmit mode) that provides rapid timing and multi-protocol arbitration. The module also has a high efficiency power amplifier for longer battery life and comes in a small footprint with MCM (28-pin 6.0x6.0mm) surface mount technology packaging.

Skyworks Solutions is aiming to empower the wireless networking revolution. Their innovative analogue semiconductors are connecting people, places and things spanning a number of new applications within the aerospace, automotive, broadband, cellular infrastructure, connected home, industrial, medical, military, smartphone, tablet and wearable markets.

Skyworks is a global company with engineering, marketing, operations, sales and support facilities located throughout Asia, Europe and North America and is a member of the S&P 500 and Nasdaq-100 market indices.
