Skyworks providing RF content for D-Link's Wave 2 Wi-Fi routers

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) says that it will be the exclusive provider of RF content powering D-Links' next-generation 802.11ac Wave 2 devices.

The AC5300 (DIR-895L/R) and AC3150 (DIR-885L/R) ultra Wi-Fi routers support tri-band 2.4 and 5GHz technology, multiple-user MIMO (multiple input multiple output) and deliver wireless speeds up to 5.3Gbps and 3.2Gbps, respectively. The DIR-895L/R is said to be the world's fastest router, facilitating uninterrupted, high-definition multimedia streaming in the home.

"As new technologies emerge and more devices become connected within the home, consumers are demanding reliable, high-speed wide-area network connections to carry data, voice, video and multimedia content simultaneously," says D-Link's chief technology officer AJ Wang. "By leveraging Skyworks' leading-edge Wave 2 connectivity solutions, we are able to offer customers the world's fastest networking speeds and Wi-Fi connections for every type of mobile device," he adds.

According to a Cisco Visual Networking Index Forecast in May, by 2019 fixed networking devices such as routers will handle about 82% of all consumer Internet traffic, with total Internet traffic growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33% from 2015 to 2019. By leveraging networking technology from Skyworks and D-Link, users can support applications and devices with ever increasing bandwidth demands, says Skyworks.

Skyworks' networking solutions include the following devices:

  • SKY85201-11 and SKY85605-11 are integrated single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switches with a low-noise amplifier (LNA), operating at 2.4-2.5GHz and 4.9-5.9GHz respectively, for wireless applications. The devices have a low noise figure, offer the ability to add custom filtering between the switch and LNA blocks and operate at 3.3V, drawing low current with what is claimed to be class-leading IIP3. The small footprint provides the industry's smallest PCB area needed to implement an integrated broadband SPDT switch with LNA functionality, it is claimed.
  • SKY85405 is a high-power 802.11ac WLAN power amplifier with integrated power detector. The device features an internal bandgap regulator that eliminates the need for an external reference supply. Its packaging offers a highly manufacturable, low-cost solution.
  • SE2623L-R is a 2.4GHz power amplifier designed for industrial, scientific & medical (ISM) bands for WLAN applications. The device incorporates a power detector for closed-loop monitoring of the output power and includes a digital enable control for device on/off control.
