Skyworks Solutions collaborated with Ember on a portfolio of ZigBee front-end modules (FEM), targeting applications such as smart meters in energy management and industrial automation. ZigBee is a wireless network standard that supports remote monitoring and control, and sensor-network applications. The portfolio includes Ember’s EM250 system-on-chip (SoC) along with the EmberZNet PRO, which integrates an IEEE 802.15.4 radio, a 16-bit microprocessor, flash memory, random access memory and peripherals. These products are designed to work with Skyworks’ SKY65336 8 x 8 millimeter multi-chip module for ZigBee and other 2.4 GHz industrial, scientific and medical band applications.
