Skyworks Introduces New Family of Integrated Wi-Fi Solutions

Skyworks WiFi

Skyworks has introduced its newest family of highly integrated wireless networking solutions for mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystems. The new SkyOne 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, compact footprint. The 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.

The SKY85812-11 is dual-band front-end module incorporating a 5 GHz bypass low noise amplifier with SPDT transmit/receive switch and a 2.4 GHz bypass low noise amplifier with SP3T switch with Bluetooth port that allows for Wi-Fi antenna sharing. It also includes a 2 GHz LTE coexistence filter and diplexer – all designed into a compact, 16-pin 3 x 3 mm package.

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. 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.

Skyworks’ SKY85812-11 is currently available for sampling and production.
