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 by 4 by 0.9 mm, 16-pin multichip module solution. Its extended range more than doubles when compared to a standalone system-on-chip solution.
To enhance the range and RF performance for solutions addressing the Internet of Things applications, Texas Instruments and Skyworks partnered to create an innovative product. The combination of the SKY66115-11 with TIs CC1310 wireless MCU addresses customers needs for long-range, low-power and cost-effective solutions.
