Skyworks introduces connectivity solutions for emerging automotive platforms

Skyworks Solutions has introduced its suite of next generation SkyOne® Ultra 3.0 devices specifically designed for advanced automotive applications.

Skyworks Solutions is known for its innovative analog semiconductors and is playing its part in wireless networking revolution.

The company’s newest wireless solutions are derivatives of its SkyOne cellular platform, delivering robust, low latency, high bandwidth LTE connectivity in addition to extended operating temperature ranges and production lifetimes.

The portfolio exceeds LTE CAT 16 requirements, is scalable to 5G new radio standards and supports all global cellular bands. Given their compatibility with all leading chipset providers and a simplified compliance process, these highly integrated architectures are being adopting by customers to reduce design complexity as well as time to market.

SkyOne® Ultra 3.0 incorporates the key analog and RF functionality in both transmit and receive paths of LTE communications. Transmit devices contain power amplifier modules with SkyBlue™ technology for improved efficiency, as well as integrated duplexers (PAMiDs), low noise amplifiers (LNAs) and antenna switches.

Diversity receive (DRx) modules combine the necessary components within the LTE receive path including LNAs, filters and antenna switches. The complete cellular solution is contained in a package of less than 40 mm x 40 mm, a critical element in meeting automotive-qualified network attached device (NAD) reliability requirements. Further, the connectivity engines can be regionally optimized for North American, European, Chinese and other SKUs to achieve additional cost savings.
