Wireless Solutions Optimize Battery Life and Extend Range

Skyworks Enables Next Generation Tracking Devices - RF CafeNovember 13, 2017 - Irvine, California - Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today announced that its connectivity solutions are enabling next generation tracking devices, a new and exciting Internet of Things application. Specifically, Skyworks' high efficiency, front-end systems have been adopted by XY Findables, a market leader in wearable technology, to increase battery life and nearly double the range when compared to other personal item finders.

"By leveraging Skyworks' fully integrated solutions, we were able to accelerate the introduction of the most powerful Bluetooth® item finder available today," said Arie Trouw, chief executive officer of XY. "XY4+'s platform radically improves performance and extends battery life up to five years, supporting our goal of providing consumers both peace of mind and assistance when locating their most valuable items."

"Advancing Bluetooth® wireless performance in premium products like XY4+ demonstrates our commitment to pioneering breakthrough technologies and addressing demand for connectivity across a broad array of IoT applications," said John O'Neill, vice president of product marketing for Skyworks. "As part of our ambitious vision to connect everyone and everything all the time, we are delighted to partner with innovative companies like XY Findables to offer our system-level expertise and broad product portfolio."

In a recent report from the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency, personal tracking devices are expected to become the fastest growing market within the Location Based Services (LBS) sector with an expected compounded annual growth rate of 18 percent between 2016 and 2025.
