LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today unveiled its suite of 75 ohm low noise amplifiers and high performance switches supporting higher data rates across broadband networking platforms in the connected home. As more devices become connected within the home, consumers are demanding reliable, high-speed, wide area network connections to carry data, voice, video and multimedia content simultaneously. Skyworks’ newest solutions support DOCSIS 3.1 standards, which enable speeds of 1 Gbps on existing hybrid fiber coaxial networks and up to 10 Gbps on next generation systems. According to a recent news article, as of March 2015, the top ten states in the U.S. with the highest networks speeds averaged internet speeds of just over 40 Mbps.

“With consumers demanding ever increasing data rates for audio and video streaming, web browsing and other wireless networking applications within the home, there is a need for high performance analog solutions supporting broadband platforms that can significantly add capacity and lay the groundwork for future increases in download speeds,” said John O’Neill, vice president of broad markets for Skyworks. “Skyworks’ newest products meet these demanding requirements and further demonstrate our ability to deliver innovative, system level solutions. By partnering with OEMs, Skyworks is able to offer consumers some of the world’s fastest networking speeds and Wi-Fi connections within the connected home and across the Internet of Things, enhancing the user experience.”

According to a May 2015 Visual Networking Index Forecast by Cisco®, broadband speeds will more than double by 2019. By 2019, global fixed broadband speeds will reach 42.5 Mbps, up from 20.3 Mbps in 2014. Skyworks’ suite of solutions is enabling devices that support these higher data rate speeds.

About Skyworks’ Broadband Networking Solutions

SKY65450-92LF – is a MMIC front-end, low-noise amplifier with bypass mode designed especially for set-top box and home gateway applications. The device, which is optimized to operate between 40 MHz and 1 GHz, provides high linearity, excellent gain, and best in class composite triple beat and composite second order. It is fabricated using SiGe BiCMOS technology and manufactured in a 6-pin, SC-70 SMT package.

SKY65452-92LF – is a MMIC front-end, low noise amplifier designed for set-top box and home gateway applications. The device, which is optimized to operate between 40 MHz and 1 GHz, provides high linearity, excellent gain, and best in class composite triple beat and composite second order. It is fabricated using SiGe BiCMOS technology and manufactured in a 6-pin, SC-70 SMT package.

SKY13547-490LF – is a single-pole, double-throw 75 O switch. Its high linearity and low insertion loss meet the most stringent requirements of DOCSIS 3.1 applications. The switch is a “reflective short” on the isolated port and provided in a compact 2 x 2 mm, 12-pin QFN package.

SKY13548-385LF – is a single-pole, double-throw 75 O switch intended for mode switching in either pre-select filter or post-select filter in set-top boxes and cable modem applications. Using advanced switching technologies, the SKY13548-385LF maintains low insertion loss and high isolation for all switching paths. It is manufactured in a compact 1 x 1 mm, 6-pin QFN package.
