WOBURN, Mass., Oct. 15, 2007 – Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling mobile connectivity, today announced that several of its single channel and diversity downconverters, including the SKY73032 and the SKY73021, have reached volume production with the industry’s leading infrastructure OEMs. Skyworks’ highly integrated solutions, which are a part of its rapidly growing Linear Products portfolio, support GSM/EDGE, CDMA, WCDMA, WiMAX, and Long Term Evolution (LTE) applications, offer a wide range of RF frequencies, and leverage the same innovative transceiver technology Skyworks has developed for handsets. “After capturing multiple design wins, we are delighted to have reached volume production with several of our products,” said Stan Swearingen, Skyworks’ vice president and general manager of Linear Products. “Our expansive portfolio supports infrastructure OEMs at any stage, from those implementing system upgrades to those developing next-generation designs, essentially providing customers with the ability to meet all their high performance downconverter needs with one supplier.” Growth in the wireless infrastructure market is expected to be fueled by capital expenditures for emerging regions and the build out of 3G networks required to handle the migration to WCDMA, where handsets and base stations must process voice and data simultaneously.

According to CIBC estimates, capital expenditures for 3G alone are anticipated to be over $23 billion in 2008, representing a compounded annual growth rate of 17 percent from 2006. The company's expanded infrastructure portfolio includes high-performance receiver front-ends, down-converters, linear power amplifiers and drivers, as well as all of the necessary RF microwave discrete and passive components. Each component covers a wide range of frequencies, also making them ideal for satellite transceivers, wireless routers, wireless local loop, image storage modules, telemetry, RF identification (RFID), and other global wireless applications. Today, Skyworks is in volume production with the following downconverters, having shipped over one million units since their introduction a year ago:
  • SKY73020: a 700-1000 MHz diversity mixer
  • SKY73021: a 1700-2200 MHz diversity mixer
  • SKY73022: a 700-1000 MHz high gain diversity mixer
  • SKY73023: a 700-2200 MHz high gain diversity mixer
  • SKY73025: a 2200-2700 MHz high gain diversity mixer
  • SKY73032: a 700-1000 MHz high gain single mixer
  • SKY73033: a 1700-2200 MHz high gain single mixer
  • SKY73035: a 2200-2700 MHz high gain single mixer

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

1996 - 2024


Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
