Skyworks Solutions launches two low-power Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) front-end modules (FEMs) for connected home, wearable and industrial applications.
With power consumption of only 10mA in transmit mode, the SKY66110-11 and SKY66111-11 FEMs operate at 2.4-2.485GHz, and are suitable for products operating from coin cell batteries including sensors, beacons, smartwatches, thermostats, smoke and carbon dioxide detectors, wireless cameras and audio headphones, hearing aids and medical pendants.
Packaged in a small-footprint 3mm x 3mm x 0.8mm, 16-pin multi-chip module, the FEMs more than double the range when compared to a standalone system-on-chip solution. The SKY66111-11 FEM in particular features adjustable output power.
Additional features include an output of +10 dBm, operating supply range from 1.8 to 5 V, low sleep current and RX bypass.
