RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Skyworks Captures Initial SkyOne™ Design Wins
-- World's Most Highly Integrated Front-end Solution Reduces
Complexity, Size and Time-to-Market for Demanding Advanced
BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2013 – Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high
performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced that
several leading OEMs and smartphone providers are leveraging the company's highly customizable,
fully optimized SkyOne™ front-end solution. The SkyOne™ platform, which integrates all
RF and analog content between the transceiver and antenna, reduces complexity, size and time-to-market
for customers with demanding architectures for advanced mobile applications.
Utilizing Skyworks' full technology portfolio and advanced multichip module capabilities including
proprietary shielding and packaging, SkyOne™ is the world's first semiconductor device to condense
multiband power amplifiers and high throw switches along with all associated filtering, duplexing
and control functionality into a single, ultra-compact package---all in less than half the area
of the industry's most advanced approach. At the same time, this groundbreaking solution
provides the world's best linearity and power added efficiency for smart RF integration.
As a result, SkyOne™ offers smartphone, tablet and ultrabook OEMs improved efficiency, drastically
reduced RF paths, ease of implementation and a scalable platform as bands increasingly proliferate
“Consumer demand for increasingly thinner mobile platforms with increased
talk and data access time is creating unprecedented analog and RF complexity as well as harmonic
coexistence issues. Skyworks is delighted to solve this system challenge with our breakthrough
SkyOne™ platform,” said Liam K. Griffin, executive vice president and corporate general manager
at Skyworks. “SkyOne™ is a proven architecture that optimizes performance beyond what
is possible with existing approaches and incorporates all 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE protocols enabling
seamless global roaming and extended battery life. Incorporating Skyworks' arsenal of
tested and patented technologies and leveraging GaAs, SOI, SiGe and CMOS processes, SkyOne™
can be modulated and customized depending upon the system requirements and roadmaps of each
About the SkyOne™ Platform
SkyOne™ solutions incorporate
the field proven SKY77619, Skyworks' high efficiency, multimode power amplifier module already
in volume production with multiple customers. Further, the highly flexible solution contains
a common footprint that can be implemented by all of the world's carriers and in various regions.
Skyworks will be sampling third generation solutions next month and is already developing fifth
generation architectures with multiple OEMs.
Specific SkyOne™ Devices
Sampling now, these second generation, hybrid, multimode, multiband, patented front-end
modules with low insertion loss support 2.5/3G/4G handsets and operate efficiently in quad-band
GSM, GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA, HSPA and LTE modes. The ultra compact, 7 x 9.8 x 1.05 millimeter
packaged FEMs consist of a GSM800/EGSM900 power amplifier block (PA), a DCS1800/PCS1900 PA block,
separate WCDMA blocks operating in the low and high bands, logic control block for multiple
power control levels as well as band-enable functions in cellular and universal mobile telecommunications
system. Radio frequency I/O ports are internally matched to minimize external components
while extremely low leakage current maximizes handset standby time. The InGaP/GaAs die
and passive components are mounted on a multi-layer laminate substrate and the assembly encapsulated
in plastic overmold.
