Skyworks’ Front End Modules Power Next-Generation of WiFi 6 Devices

Skyworks announced that its advanced connectivity solutions are powering next-generation of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) devices for the leading connected home and mesh network providers, including Arris, Asus, D-Link, Netgear, Ruckus and TP-Link.

Wi-Fi 6 is the newest 802.11 wireless standard that is pushing the performance envelope with speeds up to 30% faster than the previous 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) protocol. These state-of-the-art routers accommodate the growing number of cloud devices and users in today’s connected home by optimizing the overall efficiency and data throughput. Skyworks’ powerful modules facilitate this enhanced functionality with best-in-class linearity and performance in the smallest footprint available.

Faster, more reliable and efficient Wi-Fi coverage is becoming increasingly important as more and more devices and users are connected in smart homes. Skyworks’ portfolio of high-performance solutions provides the customers with all the required functionality to deliver maximum Wi-Fi range and speeds to address the need for always-on connectivity.

According to ABI Research estimates, Wi-Fi 6 chipset shipments are expected to grow from approximately 127 million units in 2019 to close to 2 billion units by 2024, representing a compounded annual growth rate of approximately 73%.
