Skyworks has introduced the SKY66105-11, a RF front-end module (FEM) designed for Industrial, Scientific, Medical (ISM), and Connected Home applications operating within the 902 to 931 MHz frequency band.
This Federal Communications Commision (FCC) -compliant module integrates filters and shielding; it is designed 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.
