  • Transmit output power: +20 dBm
  • 2.5 V to 3.6 V supply operation
  • Low power consumption
  • Rx bypass
  • 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 SKY66115-11 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.
