-- 50 and 100 Watt Solutions Being Leveraged by Multiple Tier-One
Base Station Manufacturers;
Broadens Product Portfolio and Supports
MONTREAL – June 20, 2012 −
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high reliability analog semiconductors enabling a broad
range of end markets, today introduced a line of high power RF switches – up to 100 Watts – supporting diverse
market applications including TD-LTE infrastructure base stations, repeaters and low frequency military/microwave
UHF and UVF radios. Skyworks’ highly integrated single pole double throw (SPDT) solutions offer customers high
performance, cost competitive devices in a compact design.
is delighted to be offering customers unique and innovative products for their demanding RF design needs,” said
David Stasey, vice president of Analog Components at Skyworks. “By replacing expensive mechanical switches and
complicated relays, our newest devices simplify architectures for applications with challenging power levels.
With design wins at several tier one customers, Skyworks continues to leverage its broad technical leadership and
scale across multiple and diverse markets.”
About Skyworks’ New High Power SPDT Switches
SKY12207-478LF (0.9 – 4.0
SKY12208-306LF (0.02 – 2.7
GHz) and SKY12210-478LF (0.9
– 4.0 GHz) are high power SPDT silicon-based PIN diode switches. The 4 x 4 millimeter, 16-pin quad flat no lead
packaged devices features low insertion loss (0.4dB), high isolation (44 dB), excellent power handling (50 and 100
Watts) and superb linearity with low direct current (DC) power consumption. They all operate with a 5 or 28 V
positive DC voltage supply across a broad frequency range (20 MHz – 4.0 GHz). Skyworks has also developed a
complementary driver application circuit to align with these switches.
