Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA says that analog and mixed-signal semiconductor supplier Semtech Corp of Camarillo, CA, USA is leveraging its newest suite of low-power, wide-area network (LPWAN) products. Specifically, it is integrating Skyworks’ front-end solutions with their next-generation LoRa (Long Range) devices and wireless radio frequency technology for picocell gateways. Skyworks says that its high-efficiency front-end modules for LPWAN applications (which include the SKY66420-11, SKY66421-11 and SKY66423-11) quadruple the operating range, supply maximum power and improve sensitivity versus alternative architectures – all in a compact form factor.

LoRa is emerging as a wireless standard for IoT across energy management, smart agriculture, industrial automation, security, the connected home and more. According to industry estimates, the global LPWAN market is rising at a compounded annual growth rate of 89% from $1bn in 2016 to more than $24bn by 2021. In addition, IDATE projects that LPWAN unit shipments will more than triple from 109 million in 2017 to 339 million by 2025.

“Through our collaboration with Skyworks, we are expanding the availability of innovative LoRa options,” says Vivek Mohan, director of IoT for Semtech’s wireless and sensing products group. “Skyworks’ powerful wireless engines coupled with Semtech’s LoRa Technology will deliver easy to deploy, proven and flexible platforms with unprecedented efficiency and range to new markets for a more connected world.”

“Leveraging our global scale and expertise across diverse wireless standards, Skyworks is ramping breakthrough devices in support of exciting LoRa network deployments spanning a wide range of smart end-markets,” says Skyworks’ VP of marketing John O’Neill. “Together, we are enabling the world’s most energy-efficient ecosystems for the Internet of Things,” he claims.

Skyworks is exhibiting in Hall C3, Booth 120 at electronica 2018 in Munich, Germany (12-16 November).
