Video: Skyworks' New Family of FEMs for LPWAN IoT and Industrial Applications

17 September 2018

Skyworks’ newest family of compact, high-performance RF front-end modules (FEMs) is specifically designed for low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) – supporting LoRa®, SigFox and other unlicensed band technologies – as well as high-power industrial, scientific, medical (ISM) applications operating in the 860 to 930 MHz frequency range. These new solutions deliver improved sensitivity and more than quadruple the operating range versus a standalone system-on-chip (SoC). They also occupy minimal board space and consume low power, making them ideal for internet of things (IoT) and industrial platforms including sensors, beacons, smartwatches, thermostats, wireless cameras, medical pendants and smoke and CO detectors.

Key features include:

• 4x extended range and approximately 11 dB improved sensitivity versus a standalone SoC, covering both FCC and ETSI unlicensed bands

• 2.0 to 4.8 V supply voltage range, enabling direct operation from a battery

• Low power consumption, supporting operation from coin cell batteries

• Compact 3.0 x 3.0 x 0.75 mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) package ideal for IoT and industrial applications
