Skyworks launches front-end module for LPWAN, LoRa, IoT and industrial applications
Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has added the SKY66422-11 to its family of compact, high-performance RF front-end modules (FEMs), which is specifically designed for LPWAN – supporting LoRa, SigFox and other unlicensed band technologies – as well as high-power industrial, scientific & medical (ISM) applications operating in the 860-930MHz frequency range.
Complementing the existing SKY66420-11, SKY66421-11 and SKY66423-11 front-end modules, the new SKY66422-11 delivers improved sensitivity and more than double the operating range versus a standalone system-on-chip (SoC). It requires minimal board space and consumes low power, making it suitable for Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial platforms including sensors, beacons, smartwatches, thermostats, wireless cameras, medical pendants and smoke and CO detectors.
