Skyworks Releases Multi-Standard IoT Front-End Module

Skyworks has announced the launch of the SKY66113-11, the company's latest 2.4 GHz fully integrated RF front-end module (FEM) supporting Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)/Bluetooth Smart, 802.15.4, Thread and ZigBee applications.

According to Skyworks, the device is a front-end solution for Internet of Things applications, particularly within the connected-home, wearable and industrial markets. It can be used with voice assistants, sensors, beacons, smart watches, thermostats, wireless cameras, wireless headphones, medical pendants and hearing aids.

The FEM includes an integrated high-gain, low-noise amplifier with a transmit bypass path and digital controls. It more than doubles the wireless range compared to a standalone system-on-chip (SoC), the company reports, improving the receive sensitivity up to 7 dB. The FEM operates on a wide supply voltage range from 1.7 to 3.6 volts, allowing for use in a broad range of battery-powered applications. The FEM has a fast switch on-off time and is in a compact footprint package: 16-pin, and 2.4 millimeters by 2.4 millimeters by 0.8 millimeter.
