Next-Gen Tracking Device Powered by Skyworks Front End-Modules

Skyworks’ high efficiency, front-end module has been adopted by XY Findables, a market leader in nearable technology, to increase battery life and nearly double the range when compared to other personal item finders.

By leveraging Skyworks’ fully integrated solutions, XY were able to accelerate the introduction of their most powerful Bluetooth item finder - XY4+. This platform radically improves performance and extends battery life up to five years, supporting their goal of providing consumers both peace of mind and assistance when locating their most valuable items.

According to XY, the average person spends approximately five hours a month searching for misplaced items like TV remotes, keys, smartphones, eyewear, wallets and purses. In a recent report from the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency, personal tracking devices are expected to become the fastest growing segment within the Location Based Services (LBS) sector with an expected compounded annual growth rate of 18 percent between 2016 and 2025.

XY4+ item finders utilize Skyworks’ highly integrated front-end modules designed for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) range extension devices operating in the 2.4 to 2.485 GHz range. Applications include wearables, beacons, sensors, home automation and other IoT platforms.
