Skyworks launches Bluetooth Low Energy/802.15.4/Thread/ZigBee front-end module

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has launched the SKY66113-11, its newest 2.4GHz fully integrated RF front-end module (FEM) supporting Bluetooth Low Energy/Bluetooth Smart, 802.15.4, Thread and ZigBee applications.

The new high-performance device is claimed to be the world’s most efficient front-end solution for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, especially within the connected home, wearable and industrial markets. It is suitable for voice assistants, sensors, beacons, smart watches, thermostats, wireless cameras/headphones, medical pendants, hearing aids etc.

The FEM includes an integrated high-gain, low-noise amplifier (LNA) with transmit bypass path and digital controls and operates on a wide supply voltage range from 1.7V to 3.6V, allowing for use in a broad spectrum of battery powered applications.

The solution also more than doubles the wireless range compared with a standalone system-on-chip (SoC) and boasts a fast switch-on/off time within a compact footprint (16-pin, 2.4mm x 2.4mm x 0.8mm package). Compared with the performance of a SoC solution alone, the new SKY66113-11 FEM delivers a receive sensitivity boost of up to 7dB improvement.
