ISM RF front-end module integrates harmonic filters and shielding

January 31, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Skyworks' SKY66105-11 is a high performance, highly integrated RF front-end module (FEM) designed for high power Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) and Connected Home applications operating within the 902 to 931MHz frequency band.

This FCC-compliant module integrates harmonic filters and shielding, making it suitable for sensors, smart meters (water, gas, electric) and machine-to-machine uses. The SKY66105-11 features 30 dBm of output power, which maximizes range while staying within FCC regulatory limits.

The module’s single-ended 50 Ohm transmit/receive interface offers a reduced bill of materials and includes fast ON/OFF time (1-2µs), which results in a reduction in current and enables rapid timing and multi-protocol arbitration. The RF blocks operate over a wide supply voltage range (2.0 to 4.8 V) for battery-powered applications. This device is manufactured in a compact MCM 12-pin 8- x 6- x 1.05-mm package.
