Skyworks unveils SkyOne Ultra 2.5 generation of front-end modules, targeting China LTE market

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has launched its newest SkyOne front-end front-end modules, targeting the high-growth China LTE market.

The SkyOne Ultra 2.5 family includes both global and region-specific architectures, providing the ability to leverage the same printed-circuit board across multiple smartphone platforms optimized for diverse end-markets. Leveraging proven technologies, the new multi-band RF modules utilize the firm's SkyBlue technology to enhance system efficiency and battery life. Further, because the devices allow customers to scale the solution with regional variations, they are suitable for Internet of Things (IoT) applications requiring full LTE connectivity.

Specifically, SkyOne Ultra 2.5 solutions include the following:

  • SKY87020 - a high-efficiency RF front-end power management IC for average power tracking RF power amplifier applications in portable battery-powered devices;
  • SKY77360 - a power amplifier module designed for 2G quad-band cellular handsets;
  • SKY78113 - a multi-mode multi-band (MMMB) front-end module for WCDMA/LTE bands 8, 12, 13, 20, 26,28, 29;
  • SKY78114 - an MMMB front-end module for WCDMA / LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 34, 39; and
  • SKY78117 - an MMMB front-end module for FDD/TDD LTE bands 7, 30, 38, 40, 41.

Skyworks is offering the flexible system solution in response to "growing smartphone demand in China as well as the need for highly integrated solutions across adjacent automotive and machine-to-machine applications," says Carlos Bori, VP of sales & marketing. "Our front-end solutions are bringing tremendous value and performance to multiple end-markets, enabling our customers to exceed domestic and global performance requirements via a single device," he adds.

GSMA Intelligence estimates that global 4G LTE connections will reach 2.5 billion by 2020, with 60% of connections coming from developing regions, largely driven by TD-LTE growth in China.
