Richardson RFPD announces support for Skyworks’ RF front end module
Distributor, Richardson RFPD has announced availability of front-end modules for internet of things (IoT) applications from Skyworks. The SKY66112-11 integrated radio frequency (RF) front end modules (FEM) is designed for ZigBee, Thread and Bluetooth Smart applications.
The SKY66112-11 will be available from Richardson RFPD, with full design support capabilities for the Skyworks 2.4GHz FEM.
The RF FEM is designed for ZigBee, Thread and Bluetooth Smart applications. The SKY66112-11 provides an integrated inter-stage matching and harmonic filter. Digital controls compatible with 1.6 to 3.6V complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) levels. It maximises battery life while simultaneously increasing transmission range with improved power, says Richardson RFPD.
The SKY66112-11 integrates a power amplifier with up to +21dBm output power, a low noise amplifier with 2.0dB noise figure and bypass path, and antenna diversity switching for all modes.
Frequency range is 2400 to 2483MHz and switch on/off time is less than 800ns. In sleep mode, current consumption is less than one microA.
The SKY66112-11 is available in a small, 22-pin, multi-chip module (MCM) which measures 3.5 x 3.0 x 1.0mm. The RF FME is designed for IoT applications, such as in-home appliances, smart thermostats, smart lighting, sensors, range extenders, and other IoT devices.
