Skyworks Solutions Press Release - September 28, 2010

Skyworks Unveils Highly Integrated Switch Matrix Solutions
for Fast Growing Satellite and Cable Television Markets

Reduces Board Footprint and Customers’ Bill of Materials

Click to visit Skyworks Solutions Woburn, Mass., Sept. 28, 2010—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 it has launched several new complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) switch matrix devices for the direct broadcast satellite (DBS) and cable television markets. Skyworks’ newest solutions eliminate the need for external components by integrating critical functionality directly on the CMOS die, providing customers with significant cost savings and reduced printed circuit board (PCB) space requirements.


Skyworks' SKY13327-365LF and SKY13369-365LFDBS is a service that allows households to receive television programming directly from a satellite transponder via a low noise block converter.  Across the satellite receiver industry, low noise block switches are increasingly enabling a single dish to view multiple satellites and allow hundreds of channels to be viewed per household. Skyworks’ switch matrix solutions connect four of the satellite signals to two indoor set-top boxes selectable by the viewer’s channel choice. Current Skyworks’ customers include BSkyB, DIRECTV, EchoStar and their design partners – along with a variety of emerging Chinese LNB original equipment manufacturers and original device manufacturers.


Skyworks SKY13327-365LF Switch“We are delighted to be expanding our product portfolio with industry-leading solutions for today’s fast-growing satellite and cable television markets, particularly as these markets are expected to achieve double digit growth every year through 2015,” said David Stasey, vice president of analog components at Skyworks. “These newest additions to our CMOS switch family are just several solutions within Skyworks’ broad portfolio designed to drive greater network reliability, capacity and efficiency while also reducing size and complexity.”
 
About Skyworks’ New Switch Matrix Solutions
The SKY13327-365LF and the SKY13369-365LF are 0.25-2.15 gigahertz (GHz) 4 x 2 millimeter (mm) switch matrices that combine a digital decoder with the RF switching network, tone/voltage detect and digital satellite equipment control rejection (DiSEqC) functionality. The compact 20-pin quad flat no lead (QFN) packaged switches enable any of the four inputs to either of the two outputs. Switch states can be selected using tone and voltage signals together with vertical-horizontal mirror control inputs. The switches are packaged in Skyworks’ Green and restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS)-compliant, leadless plastic packages.

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...
