Skyworks Introduces Front-End Module for Smart Energy and IoT Applications
470 to 510 MHz Front-End Module
September 14, 2016
Transmit output power: +20 dBm
2.5 V to 3.6 V supply operation
Low power consumption
Small footprint (16-pin, 4 x 4 mm) MCM package (MSL3, 260 °C per JEDEC J-STD-020)
Skyworks has introduced a highly integrated 470 to 510 MHz front-end module (FEM) that is ideal for
smart energy, smart metering (electric, gas, water, heat), security, RFID, industrial and other Internet
of Things (IoT) applications. The
FEM operates over a wide variety of supply voltages at low power consumption, and comes in a small 4
x 4 x 0.9 mm, 16-pin multichip module solution. Its extended range more than doubles when compared to
a standalone system-on-chip solution.
Reference Design To enhance the range and RF performance for solutions addressing the Internet of
Things applications, Texas Instruments and Skyworks partnered to create an innovative product. The combination
of the SKY66115-11 with TI’s CC1310 wireless MCU addresses customers’ needs for long-range, low-power
and cost-effective solutions. For more information regarding the CC130, please visit:
