Skyworks has introduced the SKY85309-11, the industry’s highest power, fully integrated front-end module (FEM) for 802.11ac Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The FEM incorporates a 2.4 GHz single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) transmit/receive switch, a low-noise amplifier with bypass and a power amplifier.
It features high gain (32 dB) to improve system-on-chip (SoC) linearity and includes a receive filter port for co-existence filters without loss on the transmit path. The FEM reduces costs by meeting maximum FCC EIRP requirements with only two streams and comes in a compact, 24-pin 3 x 5 mm Quad Flat No-Lead (QFN) package. This feature-rich device is ideal for IoT applications including access points, routers and gateways.
