January 23, 2018 ECD Staff

Skyworks has introduced the SKY66114-11, its latest 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 and longest range solution for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, especially within the connected home, wearables and industrial markets. The FEM is ideal for voice assistants, sensors, beacons, smart watches, thermostats, wireless cameras/headphones, medical pendants, hearing aids and more.

The SKY66114-11 extends range more than 4x and delivers a receive sensitivity improvement of up to 7 dB when compared to a standalone system-on-chip (SoC). This compact solution (16-pin, 2.4 × 2.4 × 0.8 mm) integrates a high gain, low-noise amplifier, transmit bypass path and digital controls and operates over a wide supply voltage range (1.7 to 3.6 V), allowing for use in a broad spectrum of battery-powered applications.
