WOBURN, Mass. - Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today expanded its best-in-class antenna tuning product portfolio with the addition of several new high performance solutions. Skyworks' latest antenna tuning offerings address the design challenges mobile device manufacturers face as smartphones become thinner, leverage revolutionary case materials and integrate more cellular bands. By optimizing radiated efficiency, Skyworks' antenna aperture tuners enable higher data throughput and smaller footprints, minimizing dropped calls and improving the consumer experience.
"Cellular band proliferation in smartphones increases complexity and requires highly sophisticated RF solutions," said David Stasey, general manager and vice president of Diversified Analog Solutions at Skyworks. "With our newest suite of antenna tuners, Skyworks is once again pushing the performance envelope and enabling breakthrough front-end performance as well as size reductions and cost savings."
About Skyworks' Family of Antenna Tuning Solutions
Skyworks' new antenna tuning switches provide low Ron for higher efficiency, transfer more power to the antenna, offer low Coff to deliver accurate and consistent tuning results, enable high Vpeak for improved radiated spurious emission (RSE) performance and integrate GPIO-control for ease of use. To simplify the design process and accelerate time-to-market, Skyworks assists with antenna modeling, data simulation, design and layout optimization, and onsite support to help customers leverage these advanced antenna tuning products into their platforms. These products are shipped in a RoHS compliant plastic package with compact 10 pin 1.1 x 1.5 x 0.5 mm quad-flat no-leads (QFN). The common footprint of these devices allows customers to utilize one layout across multiple designs.
These new devices are available in the following configurations:
SP2T – SKY19243-686LF
SP3T – SKY19244-686LF
SP4T – SKY19245-686LF
