Skyworks powering LG's Online Connectivity Units in VWs

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) says that several of its semiconductor solutions (including its SkyHi multimode modules and switches) are powering LG Electronics Inc' latest Online Connectivity Units (OCU) being leveraged across Volkswagen automobiles to enhance connectivity and convenience. According to PwC's Strategy& 2015 study, Volkswagen ranked first for connected car innovation for both safety and infotainment.

The OCUs offer drivers seamless access to features such as smart home and location-based services from their vehicles. With more than a quarter of global vehicles expected to be connected to the internet by 2020, Skyworks is capitalizing on the need for next-generation wireless devices addressing this growing market opportunity. Specifically, LG is leveraging eight Skyworks products, including analog control ICs and integrated front-end modules.

"Our automotive design wins with LG demonstrate how Skyworks is leveraging its mobile connectivity expertise, partnerships and scale to expand our reach across the Internet of Things," says Skyworks' VP of product marketing John O'Neill.

"As connected car technology continues to push the performance envelope and application boundaries, we rely on innovators like Skyworks to enable vital wireless connectivity for our next-generation platforms," comments JS Kim, head of LG telematics research & development. "With Skyworks' advanced mobile communications solutions, we are revolutionizing the way drivers interact with their vehicles."
