Fully Integrated Devices Simplify Customers' Design
Challenges while Extending Connectivity Range and Enhancing Product Performance
October 31, 2017 - Irvine, California -
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:
SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and
things, today introduced a new family of highly integrated wireless networking solutions for
mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystems. The new
WiFi suite combines Skyworks' industry-leading integration expertise and advanced 802.11ac
technology to provide customers with a comprehensive front-end module in a single placement,
Specifically, these new products incorporate all key radio frequency blocks between the
Wi-Fi system-on-chip (SOC) and the antenna, unburdening customers of complex RF design challenges,
while reducing time to market. This unique platform significantly improves the Wi-Fi system
performance when compared to other standard SOC platforms and further mitigates interference
with other radios, extending range and increasing throughput to greatly improve the user experience.
The SKY85812-11, the first in the SkyOne® WiFi series of products, is currently shipping in
flagship platforms globally with a top tier smartphone OEM.
"Today's mobile and IoT devices are now supporting up to 20 bands and require both seamless
and robust Wi-Fi functionality to meet growing requirements from carrier offload, voice over
IP and other bandwidth-intensive applications," said David Stasey, general manager and vice
president of Diversified Analog Solutions at Skyworks. "Building upon our highly successful
SkyOne® cellular platforms, Skyworks is now pleased to offer Wi-Fi solutions that deliver
optimum levels of integration and performance."
According to ABI Research, more than 20 billion Wi-Fi chipsets are expected to be shipped
between 2016 and 2021, particularly as Wi-Fi solutions expand beyond their traditional usage
applications, frequency bands, device types and performance requirements. They also expect
more than 95 percent of devices shipped in 2021 to support 5 GHz Wi-Fi, signifying increased
spectrum sharing with cellular technologies.
About SkyOne® WiFi
is dual-band front-end module incorporating a 5 GHz bypass low noise amplifier with single-pole,
double-throw transmit/receive switch and a 2.4 GHz bypass low noise amplifier with single-pole,
triple-throw switch with Bluetooth® port that allows for Wi-Fi antenna sharing. The SKY85812-11
also includes a 2 GHz LTE coexistence filter and diplexer - all designed into a compact, 16-pin
3 x 3 mm package.
SKY85812-11 is currently available for sampling and production. For more information,
