Skyworks Unveils Sky5 LiTE for Universal 5G Deployments

At Mobile World Congress, Skyworks Solutions has introduced the industry’s first fully integrated front-end solution for mass market 5G cellular applications. The Sky5 LiTE solution provides improved RF performance in a uniquely compact package that simplifies designs, enabling faster deployment. The baseband agnostic platform supports up to 100 MHz wide bandwidth of 5G new radio (NR) waveforms with flexible power management options—delivering high-speed network experiences with optimized efficiency and near zero latency.

Targeted for mass markets, Sky5 LiTE interfaces with all leading chipset providers and equips early 5G adopters with differentiated architectures for an open ecosystem – the favored approach when compared with closed, sole-sourced RF front-end products. With the recent introduction of Sky5 Ultra for premium applications, Skyworks offers the most comprehensive 5G portfolio in the market.

According to the Global Mobile Suppliers Association, 201 operators in 83 countries are investing in 5G mobile and fixed wireless access networks in the form of tests, trials, pilot deployments and launches.
