Skyworks Powering Multiple LTE Platforms


BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--

Skyworks Solutions (News - Alert), Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high-reliability analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced that its extensive LTE (News - Alert) product portfolio continues to gain traction with leading handset OEMs and smart phone providers and is at the heart of several new, yet unreleased 4G devices slated for launch later this year. Skyworks enabled the world's first commercial LTE device, Samsung's (News - Alert) high speed 4G USB modem, the world's first mobile LTE handset, and several platforms from ST-Ericsson. Since then, Skyworks has secured additional design wins with HTC (News - Alert), among others, to power various 4G smart phones.

Today's 4G platforms allow consumers to access and stream data and multimedia applications anytime, anywhere at higher data rates than previous generation networks. Skyworks' family of LTE products provide the most complete and flexible set of options for manufacturers developing and building 4G-enabled handsets, basestations, wireless PC cards, and a host of other embedded solutions.

"Skyworks is delighted to be an industry leader in delivering solutions that ultimately offer consumers the best user experience, particularly in this age of always on connectivity," said Dr. Gene A. Tkachenko, senior director of engineering at Skyworks. "By improving efficiency and performance, boosting network throughput, and simplifying roaming, Skyworks' broad product portfolio is offering tangible benefits to handset OEMs and smart phone providers, as well as infrastructure suppliers and operators worldwide to ensure consumers have access to high-speed mobile broadband data and global coverage."

According to the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA), 180 operators are investing in LTE in 70 countries - with 17 networks already launched worldwide.

About Skyworks' LTE Solutions

The SKY77702 PAM is a fully matched, 10-pad surface mount module developed for wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA) applications. This small and efficient module packs full 1850-1910 megahertz (MHz) bandwidth coverage of band II into a single compact package. The PAM meets the stringent spectral linearity requirements of high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA), high speed uplink packet access (HSUPA) and LTE data transmission with high power added efficiency. A directional coupler is integrated into the module thus eliminating the need for any external coupler.

The SKY77703 PAM is a fully matched, 10-pad surface mount module developed for WCDMA applications. This small and efficient module packs full 1710-1785 MHz bandwidth coverage of bands III and IV into a single compact package. Because of high efficiencies attained throughout the entire power range, the device delivers unsurpassed talk-time advantages. The PAM meets the stringent spectral linearity requirements of HSDPA, HSUPA and LTE data transmission with high power added efficiency. A directional coupler is integrated into the module thus eliminating the need for any external coupler.

The SKY77704 PAM is a fully matched, surface mount module developed for WCDMA applications. This small and efficient module packs full 824-849 MHz bandwidth coverage of bands V and X into a single compact package. Because of high efficiencies attained throughout the entire power range, the device delivers unsurpassed talk-time advantages. The PAM meets the stringent spectral linearity requirements of HSDPA, HSUPA and LTE data transmission with high power added efficiency. A directional coupler is integrated into the module thus eliminaing the need for any external coupler.



The SKY77706 PAM is a fully matched, surface mount module developed for LTE/ evolved universal mobile telecommunications system terrestrial radio access network (EUTRAN) applications. This small and efficient module packs full coverage of LTE FDD band VII into a single compact package. The PAM meets the stringent spectral linearity requirements of LTE modulation with quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK)/16 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) modulations from 1.4 to 20 MHz bandwidth and full or partial resource block allocations with high power added efficiency.

The SKY77707 PAM is a fully matched, surface mount module developed for LTE/EUTRAN applications. This small and efficient module packs full coverage of LTE bands XII /XVII into a single, compact package. The PAM meets the stringent spectral linearity requirements of LTE modulation with QPSK/16 QAM modulations from 1.4 to 20 MHz bandwidth and full or partial block allocations with high power added efficiency.


The SKY77708 PAM is a fully matched, surface mount module developed for LTE/EUTRAN applications. This small and efficient module packs full coverage of LTE bands XIII/XIV into a single compact package. The PAM meets the stringent spectral linearity requirements of LTE modulation with QPSK/16 QAM modulations from 1.4 to 20 MHz bandwidth and full or partial resource block allocations with high power added efficiency.

The SKY77449 PAM is a fully matched, surface mount module developed for LTE/ EUTRAN applications. This small and efficient module packs full coverage of bands XIII, XIV LTE, EUTRAN and WCDMA into a single compact package. The device meets the stringent spectral linearity requirements of LTE modulation with QPSK/16 QAM. Additional features include noise compliance under all test conditions, Vbias control in LPM and an integrated coupler and detector inside the PAM.
