Skyworks' Front-End Module for ISM and Connected Home Applications - RF CafeSkyworks 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 x 6 x 1.05 mm package.

SKY66105-11 Features

  • Integrated PA with up to +30 dBm output power
  • Receive pass-through
  • Diversity antenna switching
  • Single-ended, 50 Ω transmit/receive RF interfaces
  • Fast turn-on/turn-off time: 1 to 2 μs
  • Supply operation: 2.0 V to 4.8 V
  • Sleep mode current: < 10 μA
  • Small footprint shielded MCM (12-pin, 8.00 x 6.00 x 1.05 mm) package (MSL3, 260 °C per JEDEC J-STD-020)

The SKY66105-11 is a high performance, highly integrated RF front-end module (FEM) designed for high power Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) applications operating in the 902 MHz to 931 MHz frequency band.

The SKY66105-11 is designed for ease of use and maximum flexibility, with fully matched 50 Ω inputs and outputs, and digital controls compatible with 1.8 V to 3.6 V CMOS levels.

The RF blocks operate over a wide supply voltage range from 2.0 V to 4.8 V, which allows the SKY66105-11 to be used in battery powered applications over a wide spectrum of the battery discharge curve.
