Skyworks ramps SkyOne Mini for LTE smartphones

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) says that its SkyOne Mini front-end solution is enabling several new smartphone launches. SkyOne Mini, a derivative of the SkyOne platform, specifically addresses the growing demand for value- and performance-oriented solutions in the LTE market by delivering the full functionality of highly integrated SkyOne devices but at a reduced cost and size.

"SkyOne Mini capitalizes on the requirements by OEMs for highly integrated solutions that offer a smaller footprint and lower bill of materials," says Carlos Bori, VP of marketing. "Our SkyOne Mini devices support multiple chipsets without the need to change the front-end, creating a simple, flexible approach that delivers significant cost and time-to-market advantages."  

The SKY78070, SKY78071 and SKY78072 SkyOne Mini solutions are hybrid, multi-mode multi-band front-end modules that support 2.5G and 3G/4G handsets and operate efficiently in GSM, GPRS, EDGE, TD-SCDMA, WCDMA, HSPA and LTE modes. The SKY78070 contains four integrated duplexers for Bands 1, 2, 5 and 8 plus an SP16T switch for non-carrier aggregation applications. The SKY78071 contains five integrated duplexers for Bands 1, 2, 4, 5 and 8 plus a DP18T switch for high/low and medium/low carrier aggregation applications. The SKY78072 contains four integrated duplexers for Bands 1, 2, 5 and 8 plus a DP18T switch for high/low and medium/low carrier aggregation applications. The SkyOne Mini family is available now for sampling and production.

According to the June 2014 Ericsson Mobility Report 'On the Pulse of the Networked Society', LTE is one of the fastest-growing segments and is being deployed in all regions of the world. Subscriptions for this technology are predicted to reach 2.6 billion by 2019, representing about 30% of total mobile subscriptions.

Skyworks is showcasing its product portfolio in Hall 6, Booth C41 (6C41) at the GSMA Mobile World Congress (MWC2015) in Barcelona, Spain (2-5 March).
