2.4 GHz Front-End Module for Zigbee® / Thread / Bluetooth® Applications

The SKY66405-11 is a high-performance, fully integrated RF front-end module (FEM) designed for Zigbee, Thread, and Bluetooth (including Low Energy) applications.

The SKY66405-11 is designed for ease of use and maximum flexibility. The device provides a power amplifier, low-noise amplifier, low-loss bypass path, transmit/receive switches, and digital controls compatible with 1.6 V to 3.6 V CMOS levels. The RF blocks operate over a wide supply voltage range from 1.7 V to 3.6 V that allows the SKY66405-11 to be used in battery powered applications over a wide spectrum of the battery discharge curve.

A functional block diagram is shown in Figure 1. The SKY66405-11 is provided in a small 1.9 mm x 1.9 mm x 0.56 mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) package.
