Skyworks Solutions Press Release - 2/9/2009

Skyworks Supports Samsung's Newest GPRS, EDGE and 3G Handsets

Partners with Qualcomm, Broadcom, Infineon, NXP and Other Baseband Suppliers

Click to visit the Skyworks websiteWOBURN, Mass. – Feb. 9, 2009 – Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high reliability analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced that Samsung is leveraging its front-end modules (FEM) and power amplifiers (PA) in its innovative general packet radio service (GPRS), enhanced data GSM management (EDGE), and third generation (3G) – in particular its universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) – models. Skyworks is partnering with baseband suppliers such as Qualcomm, Broadcom, Infineon and NXP to provide highly integrated front-end solutions for tier-one mobile handset manufacturers such as Samsung.

Samsung is utilizing Skyworks’ FEMs and PAs in their latest B3030, B320 and S7330 models. Optimized features include Bluetooth, USB, Web browsing, camera, gaming and messaging functionality – included in ultra compact devices with impressive talk times up to seven hours.
“Skyworks is pleased to be an integral part of Samsung’s compelling new lineup of GPRS, EDGE and 3G handsets as we continue to partner with a broader set of baseband suppliers,” said Liam K. Griffin, Skyworks’ senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Our front-end module and power amplifier participation in their newest models is a reflection of yet another multimode design-win and increasing market share gains at Samsung and other OEMs.”
About Skyworks’ FEMs and PAs
  • The SKY77170 PA module for wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA) is a fully matched 10-pad surface mount module that covers the full 1920-1980 megahertz (MHz) bandwidth and meets the stringent spectral linearity requirements of high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) data transmission with high power-added efficiency (PAE) for up to 27 dBm output.
  • The SKY77336 PA module for quad-band global system for mobile communications (GSM)/GPRS is designed in a compact form factor for cellular handsets supporting gaussian minimum-shift keying (GMSK) and polar EDGE modulation.
  • The SKY77344 PA module for quad-band GSM and EDGE is designed in a compact form factor for cellular handsets supporting GMSK and linear EDGE modulation.
  • The SKY77519 transmit-receive (Tx-RX) FEM for quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE-single band WCDMA antenna switch support contains a very low profile and EDGE polar modulation.
  • The SKY77531 Tx-Rx integrated phase and amplitude controller (iPAC)™ quad-band FEM for GSM/GPRS also contains a low profile compact form factor.
  • The SKY77534 Tx-Rx iPAC dual-band GSM/GPRS FEM is designed in a low profile, compact form factor and offers a complete transmit voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO)-to-antenna and antenna-to-receive surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter solution.

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...
