IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today announced that new solutions from its leadership Sky5™ platform have been validated to enable the fast-approaching rollout of 5G. Skyworks has launched several products that deliver world-class performance in 5G New Radio (NR) Bands n77, n78 and n79 – frequencies that mobile operators plan to utilize to deploy next generation cellular services. These devices represent the latest additions to Skyworks’ expanding portfolio of connectivity solutions specifically designed to operate across all 5G NR spectrums worldwide.
Skyworks has successfully supported several live demonstrations with Sky5™, authenticating performance to the new 5G NR standards (3GPP Release 15). In particular, the Sky5™ suite exceeded compliance for power, efficiency, error vector magnitude and spectral emission requirements – all of which can be further enhanced using wideband digital pre-distortion techniques.
“Skyworks is translating the promise of 5G into reality,” said Joel King, vice president and general manager of Mobile Solutions for Skyworks. “Our innovative Sky5™ platform is enabling up to a 100x increase in data transfer speeds versus 4G/LTE, near zero latency and expanded carrier capacity. Leveraging our systems expertise and operational scale, we are streamlining architectural complexities for both network infrastructure and user equipment to drive unprecedented mobile data experiences across a wide range of end market applications.”
According to the GSMA, 5G will primarily support enhanced mobile broadband in early deployments. Other usage cases for massive IoT and critical communications will follow as operators seek to address incremental opportunities, principally in key enterprise verticals. By 2025, the GSMA expects 5G connections to reach 1.1 billion and forecasts overall operator revenue to reach $1.3 trillion.
