Solutions Deliver the Fastest Wireless Networking
Connections in the World
January 25, 2018
- Irvine, California - Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today announced that its
new portfolio of 802.11ax
wireless connectivity solutions are being leveraged by Broadcom in their recently launched
Max WiFi reference platforms. Skyworks' innovative modules integrate high power transmit
and low-noise receive amplification with precision switch capability in an ultra-compact
form factor that when paired with a modem, incorporate all the essential functionality
between the system-on-chip (SoC) and the antenna. Specifically, Skyworks' 2.4 and 5.0
GHz 802.11ax modules and Broadcom's Max WiFi solutions provide four times faster download
speeds, six times faster upload speeds, enhanced coverage and up to seven times longer
battery life when compared to 802.11ac Wi-Fi products available in the market today.
"Skyworks is excited to be collaborating with Broadcom to combine our advanced connectivity
engines with their sixth generation Wi-Fi devices," said David Stasey, vice president
and general manager of diversified analog solutions for Skyworks. "This strategic partnership
gives our customers a unique opportunity to deliver best-in-class wireless experiences
for consumers across many new markets spanning multimedia streaming, autonomous cars
and augmented/virtual reality."
Next generation 802.11ax devices have been widely adopted across the consumer electronics
industry, as companies throughout the ecosystem begin developing solutions and products
in support of the new standard. End applications for the Max WiFi modules include Wi-Fi
routers, residential gateways, enterprise access points, and client devices. One of the
key benefits of the 802.11ax standard is that it allows for a more robust and dedicated
connection with data-intensive applications such as 4K TV, particularly when multiple
users are streaming Wi-Fi simultaneously.
According to ABI Research, 802.11ax devices will account for 57 percent of Wi-Fi chipsets
