RF module prepares for ISM and smart homes

An integrated RF front-end module from Skyworks is designed for high power, industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) and connected home applications. The SKY66105-11 operates in the connected home operating at 902 to 931MHz frequency band.

The FCC-compliant module integrates harmonic filters and shielding, making it suitable for use in sensors, smart meters (water, gas, electric) and machine-to-machine (M2M) uses.

The SKY66105-11 features 30dBm which maximises range while staying within FCC regulatory limits. The module’s single-ended 50-Ohm transmit/receive interface offers a reduced bill of materials, claims the company, and includes fast on/off time (one to two micro sec), which reduces current and enables rapid timing and multi-protocol arbitration. The RF blocks operate over a wide supply voltage range (2.0 to 4.8V) for battery-powered applications. The front-end module is manufactured in a compact MCM 12-pin 8.0 x 6.0 x 1.05mm package.
