The SKY66431 SiP enables simplified, yet high-performance designs that operate reliably around the world, speeding time-to-market.
Skyworks and Sequans have jointly developed the SKY66431, the world’s smallest LTE-M/NB-IoT connectivity platform for IoT Communication Systems. The SKY66431 is a highly integrated multi-band, multi-chip SiP that supports 5G Massive IoT platforms, offering high-performance connectivity with ultra-low power consumption. SiP can reduce design complexity while providing high performance end products, reducing development costs and speeding time-to-market. The IoT platform is suitable for use in utility meters, asset trackers, security and alert systems and other battery-powered devices such as medical wearables and fleet management.
The SKY66431’s native 23 dBm front-end module utilizes Skyworks’ RF design and advanced packaging expertise that optimizes reliability in harsh environments and allows extremely small footprint designs while maintaining simplified regulations. in PCB design. With SiP form factor-enable miniaturization and fully encapsulated silver-free conformal shielding, the SKY66431 package is a key differentiator that enables ultra-compact, flexible and robust end-product designs.
The SKY66431 module comes in a compact BGA package measuring only 8.80 x 11.30 x 1.59 mm and is ideal for various battery-powered tracking applications including personal/pet tracking, eBike tracking, industrial asset tracking, smart fleet management , industrial monitoring devices, and low power IoT device applications, etc.
“As modern connected devices evolve, Skyworks’ extensive expertise within this market and advanced packaging technologies allow us to drive improvements in power consumption, size and advanced connectivity segment to meet the performance requirements of our customers,” said Stefan Fulga, senior director of marketing for IoT and new products at Skyworks. “The SKY66431 SiP enables simplified, yet high-performance designs that operate reliably around the world, accelerating time-to-market for our customers.”
“The new SKY66431 SiP is a compelling IoT connectivity solution,” said Georges Karam, CEO of Sequans. “It is a comprehensive, all-in-one platform that combines the technologies of two industry leaders incorporating all the critical components needed in a powerful, small SiP ideal for a wide range of IoT applications, from wearables, including medical devices and trackers, to sophisticated utility meters, require advanced packaging and capabilities.”
