Skyworks Developing Wi-Fi 6E Chipsets for 5.925 - 7.125 GHz Band

Skyworks Solutions has announced that it is supporting next-generation wireless technologies set forth by Wi-Fi Alliance and developing advanced connectivity solutions designed to meet future requirements. Skyworks offers a family of solutions that address all existing Wi-Fi standards and is working with the Wi-Fi Alliance to develop Wi-Fi 6E products that operate in the 5.925 to 7.125 GHz frequency band.

As a result of increasing demand for high data applications such as streaming media/TV/audio, social media, and smart home devices, there has been an initiative to open up additional frequency bands to complement the existing 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. This new spectrum is expected to be made available by regulators around the world and it represents an opportunity to deliver the benefits of Wi-Fi 6 coupled with increased bandwidth available in the new 6 GHz band.

The 6 GHz band addresses the growing need for Wi-Fi spectrum capacity to ensure users continue to experience reliable and seamless connectivity. It is good that Wi-Fi Alliance members are working closely to ensure that new products meet high standards for interoperability and security. Skyworks is leveraging their expertise to produce connectivity solutions that address the insatiable demand for more data and the ever-evolving needs of the market. Skyworks is looking forward to continuing its tradition of innovation and providing the highest performance solutions for the OEM customers which deliver maximum Wi-Fi range and speeds.

With decades of experience developing cutting-edge technologies for successive wireless standards, Skyworks works in partnership with members of the Wi-Fi Alliance and provides guidance on FCC proceedings regarding upcoming protocols.

Skyworks’ powerful modules facilitate Wi-Fi functionality with best-in-class linearity and performance in the smallest footprint available. These solutions expedite time-to-market by incorporating the required functionality to deliver maximum performance and contain a logarithmic power detector to support wide dynamic ranges, low power consumption and improved thermal management.
