A pioneer in automotive connectivity, Skyworks is developing a suite of AEC-Q100 or AEC-Q101 qualified and consumer-grade JEDEC products.
IoT Products Showcased at CES
The SKY66431-11 is a multi-band, multi-chip System-in-Package (SiP) supporting 5G Massive IoT (LTE-M/NB-IoT) platforms. The SiP integrates the entire RF front end, transceiver, power management, memory, crystals, and baseband modem for an LTE multi-band radio operating in the 698 MHz to 2200 MHz frequency range. NOR flash and a few passives external to the package complete the SiP implementation.
The SKY66422-11 and SKY66423-11 are high-performance, highly integrated RF front-end modules designed for LPWAN – supporting LoRa, SigFox and other unlicensed band technologies – as well as high-power Industrial, Scientific, Medical (ISM) applications operating in the 860 to 930 MHz frequency range.
The SKY66408-11 is a high-performance, fully integrated RF front-end module (FEM) designed for Zigbee, Thread, and Bluetooth (including low energy) applications. The SKY66408-11 is designed for ease of use and maximum flexibility.

Si828x Gate Driver Board for Wolfspeed XM3
Skyworks Si828x-based Gate Driver Board is well suited for driving Wolfspeed’s Silicon Carbide (SiC) Field Effect Transistor (FET)-based XM3 module, a high voltage/high current module for traction inverters, industrial drive motors, EV fast chargers, uninterruptable power supplies, and more. Developed with support from the Wolfspeed XM3 module team, a test report is available that describes the Skyworks Si828x isolated gate drivers and Wolfspeed's half-bridge SiC FET XM3 module.
The Si8921/22/3x/4x family of devices is designed to provide accurate isolated current and voltage measurements with very low drift across temperatures. Based on Skyworks' robust, third-generation isolation technology, the new family provides flexible voltage, current, output and package options to help developers reduce BOM cost and shrink board space for a wide range of industrial and green-energy applications including electric vehicles (EV), battery management and charging systems, dc-dc converters, and motor, solar and wind turbine inverters. The Si892x provides isolated current measurement with analog output. The Si893x provides isolated voltage measurement with both analog and DSM options. The Si894x provides isolated current sensing with DSM output.

Aerospace & Defense
The OLC049/OLC249/OLC449 are specifically designed for large satellite constellation applications that require optical isolation in radiation environments such as gamma, neutron, and proton radiation with a high Current Transfer Ratio (CTR) and low saturation VCE.
Electrical parameters are similar to the JEDEC-registered 4N49 optocoupler, but with better CTR degradation characteristics due to radiation exposure. Special electrical parametric selections are available upon request.
