RFMD(R) Teams With Silicon Labs to Deliver High-Performance Sub-GHz Solution for Smart Energy Applications
The RFMD® RF6569 smart energy front-end module (FEM) and Silicon Labs' EZRadioPRO® Si4464/63 transceivers have been combined to create the RF6569/Si4464/63 reference design. This high-performance Sub-GHz solution provides public utilities and consumers more control over how they monitor and save energy. The solution targets portable battery-powered equipment such as smart energy advanced metering infrastructure, security and home automation systems, industrial control systems, and sensor networks in the 902 to 928MHz and 868MHz ISM bands.
RFMD's highly integrated RF6569 module features a 915MHz/868MHz 30dBm power amplifier, a Tx harmonic output filter, a single-pole double—throw (SPDT) antenna switch, and an Rx through path. The RF6569 is housed in a 5.5 x 5.0 x 1mm package, reducing discrete component content while minimizing footprint and assembly costs. The transceiver interface is single-ended with separate Rx/Tx.
"The combination of RFMD's RF6569 module and Silicon Labs' Si446x EZRadioPRO provides an energy-efficient solution for long-range RF applications such as smart utility metering," said
