|Skyworks\' SKY66113-11 Front-end Module|
Skyworks is pleased to announce the launch of the SKY66113-11, our newest 2.4 GHz fully-integrated RF front-end module (FEM) supporting Bluetooth® Low Energy/Bluetooth® Smart, 802.15.4, Thread and ZigBee® applications. This high-performance device is the world’s most efficient front-end solution for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, especially within the connected home, wearable and industrial markets. It is ideal for voice assistants, sensors, beacons, smart watches, thermostats, wireless cameras/headphones, medical pendants, hearing aids and more.
The FEM includes an integrated high gain, low-noise amplifier with transmit bypass path and digital controls and operates on a wide supply voltage range from 1.7 to 3.6 V, allowing for use in broad spectrum of battery powered applications. The solution also more than doubles the wireless range when compared to a standalone system-on-chip (SoC) and boasts a fast switch on/off time within an industry-leading compact footprint (16-pin, 2.4 × 2.4 × 0.8 mm package). When compared to the performance of a SoC solution alone, the new SKY66113-11 FEM delivers a receive sensitivity boost of up to 7 dB improvement.
