SKY65344-21: 2.4 GHz Transmit/Receive Front-End Module
with Integrated Low-Noise Amplifier
Applications
Description
• 2.4 GHz ISM band radios
Skyworks SKY65344-21 is a high-efficiency Front-End Module
(FEM) for ZigBee and other 2.4 GHz ISM band applications. The
small, 6 x 6 mm Multi-Chip Module (MCM) contains a 2400 to
2500 MHz high-efficiency transmit path and a low-loss
bidirectional path. The bidirectional path can be used to directly
connect the antenna port to a directional RF port.
• ZigBee® FEMs
• IEEE 802.15.4 applications
Features
The transmit path consists of an harmonic filter and high
efficiency Power Amplifier (PA) capable of providing +20 dBm of
power at the antenna port. Also included is an internal balun to
allow use of differential input signals.
• Transmit output power > +20 dBm
• Receive path NF < 2.2 dB
• High efficiency PA
The receive path contains a high isolation transmit/receive (T/R)
switch, Low-Noise Amplifier (LNA), and balun for low-noise
differential output.
• Programmable transmit power levels
• Configurable transmit/bidirectional paths
• Internal switching and control circuits
The device is mounted in a 20-pin, 6 x 6 mm MCM SurfaceMounted Technology (SMT) package, which allows for a highly
manufacturable low-cost solution.
• Internal RF match and bias circuits
• Single DC supply = 3.3 V
• Interfaces seamlessly with Ember EM250, EM260, and EM35x
ZigBee transceivers
• All RF ports are internally DC blocked
A block diagram of the SKY65344-21 is shown in Figure 1. The
device package and pinout for the 20-pin MCM are shown in
Figure 2.

Note 1: Exposure to maximum rating conditions for extended periods may reduce device reliability. There is no damage to device with only one parameter set at the limit and all other
parameters set at or below their nominal value. Exceeding any of the limits listed here may result in permanent damage to the device.
CAUTION: Although this device is designed to be as robust as possible, Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage this device. This device
must be protected at all times from ESD. Static charges may easily produce potentials of several kilovolts on the human body
or equipment, which can discharge without detection. Industry-standard ESD precautions should be used at all times.

Evaluation Board Description
Package and Handling Information
The SKY65344-21 standalone Evaluation Board is used to test the
performance of the SKY65344-21 FEM. The Evaluation Board
schematic diagram is shown in Figure 6. An assembly drawing for
the Evaluation Board is shown in Figure 7.
Since the device package is sensitive to moisture absorption, it is
baked and vacuum packed before shipping. Instructions on the
shipping container label regarding exposure to moisture after the
container seal is broken must be followed. Otherwise, problems
related to moisture absorption may occur when the part is
subjected to high temperature during solder assembly.
A reference design Evaluation Board is also available to test the
SKY65344-21 with an Ember EM35x series transceiver (see
Ordering Information on the last page of this Data Sheet).
Package Dimensions
The phone board layout footprint for the SKY65344-21 is shown in
Figure 8. Package dimensions for the 20-pin MCM are shown in
Figure 9, and tape and reel dimensions are provided in Figure 10.
The SKY65344-21 is rated to Moisture Sensitivity Level 3 (MSL3)
at 260 °C. It can be used for lead or lead-free soldering. For
additional information, refer to Skyworks Application Note, PCB
Design and SMT Assembly/Rework Guidelines for MCM-L
Packages, document number 101752.
Care must be taken when attaching this product, whether it is
done manually or in a production solder reflow environment.
