MediaTek using Skyworks’ Sky5 suite for sub-6GHz 5G reference platform

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) says that its Sky5 suite is being used by Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek Inc, a provider of system-on-chip (SoC) platforms for mobile device, home entertainment, connectivity and IoT products, for its new 5G reference platforms.

Specifically, Skyworks’ complete 5G front-end architecture is being combined with MediaTek’s 5G baseband chipset to deliver highly integrated solutions targeting open-market mobile products. The comprehensive sub-6GHz system enables high-speed network functionality with optimized efficiency and near-zero latency for emerging applications.

“Given Skyworks’ RF expertise and proven performance over successive wireless standards, they are a perfect complement to MediaTek for bringing breakthrough solutions to the market,” comments TL Lee, general manager of MediaTek’s wireless communications business unit. “Our strategic relationship has spanned from 2G to 4G/LTE Advanced and now 5G. Together we have created a solid foundation to address the complexities of 5G and deliver a powerful ecosystem,” he adds.

“With our Sky5 suite, we are enhancing performance in a fully integrated system, facilitating seamless implementations and faster end-user equipment rollouts as demand for greater speeds and efficiency surges,” says Joel King, senior VP & general manager of Mobile Solutions at Skyworks.

All Sky5 solutions support new 5G NR waveforms and spectrum in addition to enhanced carrier aggregation and 4G/5G dual connectivity, while delivering high levels of integration and performance.
