BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today launched its next generation diversity receive modules (DRx) for LTE smartphones. Skyworks’ newest DRx modules improve receiver sensitivity and data throughput, deliver higher levels of integration in a smaller footprint and provide the flexibility to support multiple antenna configurations. From single-feed, broad band antennas to advanced multi-feed antennas addressing carrier aggregation, these solutions allow customers to select the optimal configuration for their platform requirements.
Skyworks’ family of DRx modules incorporate low loss RF switches, high performance receive filters and LNAs, leveraging the company’s systems level expertise to deliver highly integrated solutions that dramatically enhance downlink data rates in LTE advanced MIMO systems. By amplifying the receive signal, receiver sensitivity and data throughput are improved, providing a richer consumer experience while increasing network efficiency.
“Skyworks continues to push the integration and performance envelope while capturing significantly higher content per platform,” said David Stasey, vice president and general manager of Analog Solutions for Skyworks. “Our next generation diversity receive models support multiple LTE bands, reduce RF complexity and enhance data throughput - all in a simple and flexible architecture.”
Approximately 75 percent of network traffic on mobile devices is on the downlink or receive side. Skyworks’ highly integrated DRx modules maximize LTE data throughput thereby helping mobile communication networks deliver increasing amounts of data.
About Skyworks’ Next Generation Diversity Receive Modules
SKY13740 – an LNA diversity module for cellular mobile devices that is optimized for single input/output, world roaming user equipment platforms. The solution supports cellular diversity receiver functions and is compatible with 3GPP GSM, WCDMA, LTE and LTE standards for Bands 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 20 and 26. Additional RF bands can be supported through its auxiliary ports. The module is baseband vendor agnostic, controlled via a standard RF front-end MIPI® control interface and contained in a small 5 x 3 x 0.8 mm 23-lead surface mount package.
SKY13741 – an LNA diversity module for cellular mobile devices that is optimized for China-centric user equipment platforms. It supports cellular diversity receiver functions and is compatible with 3GPP GSM, WCDMA, LTE and LTE standards for Bands 1, 3, 4, 7, 39, 40 and 41. Additional RF bands can be supported through its auxiliary port. The module is baseband vendor agnostic, controlled via a standard RF front-end MIPI® control interface and contained in a small 4 x 3 x 0.8 mm 24-lead surface mount package.
SKY13744-11 – an LNA diversity module for cellular mobile devices that is optimized for platforms supporting carrier aggregation or multi-feed antenna designs.
