BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today introduced SkyOne® LiTE, a highly integrated front-end solution for LTE mobile devices. Building upon Skyworks’ proven SkyLiTE™ architecture, the new platform incorporates advanced power amplifiers, proprietary duplexers and innovative switching technology to support complex carrier aggregation combinations in a significantly reduced form factor. These high performance systems also include a diversity receive front-end module and high linearity antenna switches to further improve functionality and enhance the user experience. Importantly, the SkyOne® LiTE family decreases development time for smartphone manufacturers.
With the increasing demand for feature rich mobile phones that utilize full screen displays, dual cameras and seamless multi-tasking capabilities, handset OEMs across the mobile ecosystem are faced with balancing the constraints of RF operation and industrial design. To address this need, SkyOne® LiTE delivers best-in-class transmit and receive performance while reducing the footprint by more than 20 percent. With two variants, the pin-to-pin solution supports 10 bands for North America and 12 bands for Europe and Asia Pacific.
“Skyworks’ newest connectivity solutions are enabling next generation, value-oriented smartphones with the most advanced wireless architectures,” said Reza Kasnavi, vice president and general manager, Open Market Platforms for Skyworks. “SkyOne® LiTE embodies our close collaboration with partners and customers to significantly push the technology envelope and simplify the design process with fully integrated modules.”
According to a 2017 report from Accenture, developing markets are expected to account for 75 percent of all smartphone sales in 2018 and will be the engine for overall market growth. This reflects consumers’ growing demand for upgraded handsets that include enhanced entertainment and media features, productivity and gaming experiences.
