Skyworks' analog and RF solutions enabling wireless automotive platforms

Analog semiconductor maker Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA says that a tier-one automotive supplier is leveraging several of its solutions in its vehicle-based wireless platforms ramping across several leading car makers, including General Motors, Chrysler, Fiat and Toyota.

The control system enables drivers to remotely activate garage door openers, entry door locks, home lighting, security systems and entry gates. Currently offered in all automotive brands, the platform is compatible with more than 99% of garage door opening systems as well as a wide variety of home safety and convenience products. The three-button interface is located as an easy-to-install module in automobile rear-view mirrors for a battery-free, programmable solution that eliminates the need for traditional clip-on transponders.

“Skyworks’ advanced analog and RF solutions are being leveraged across multiple in-vehicle applications that are enhancing safety and the overall driving experience,” says John O'Neill, VP of broad markets marketing at Skyworks. “As wireless technology in automobiles continues to rise, we are capitalizing on the increasing number of addressable semiconductor opportunities that add value, minimize OEM costs and complexity, and improve time to market,” he adds.

According to the report ‘Connected Car Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast’ from Transparency Market Research, the global connected car market is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 34.7% to $131.9bn by 2019, driven by safety and security services along with gaming, entertainment, traffic information, weather and location services.

Skyworks offers a range of analog, mixed-signal and RF semiconductors that are key components to the design of wireless automotive systems and transportation infrastructure, enabling new safety and convenience features.

Skyworks’ new automotive solutions are available now for both sampling and production.
