The SKY66422-11 from Skyworks is a highly integrated, high-performance RF Front-End Module designed for ISM band applications from 860 to 930 MHz. The FEM consist of an integrated Power Amplifier, Low Noise Amplifier, Antenna Switch and Digital Controls. The Power amplifier provides an output power of 20 dBm and the LNA has a low noise figure of 1.7 dB. The FEM is designed for ease of use and maximum flexibility with fully matched 50 ohms TX and RX inputs, and digital controls compatible with 1.6 to 3.6 V CMOS levels.
The RF blocks operate over a supply voltage range from 2.5 to 3.6 V allowing the module to be used in battery powered applications over a wide spectrum of the battery discharge curve. It consumes 0.4 μA of current in sleep mode and has a fast turn-on/turn-off time of 20 μs.
The SKY66422-11 is available in a 16-pin multi-chip module (MCM) package that measures 3.00 x 3.00 x 0.75 mm and is suitable for use in LP-WAN devices, Internet of Things, smart meters, industrial applications, and range extender.
