Smallest Multi-band IoT FEM from Skyworks



RFMW announced design and sales support for a low profile, multi-band massive IoT front-end module from Skyworks. The SKY68031-11 is the industry’s smallest, multi-band RF front-end (RFFE) module for licensed, low-power, wide-area network (LTE-M/NB-IoT) applications including asset tracking, health and fitness wearables, smart metering and industrial monitoring. This module integrates the entire RF front end necessary for a cellular IoT radio operating in low-band (5, 8, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 26, 28, 85) and mid-band (1, 2, 3, 4, 25, 39, 66, 70) frequencies. The FEM monolithically integrates a broadband power amplifier, transmit harmonic filters, antenna switch and MIPI RFFE controller, all in a compact 3 x 3 mm package enabling significant size reduction and usability in system-in-packages.
