Solutions Deliver the Fastest Wireless Networking Connections in the
IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 25, 2018--
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high
performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things,
today announced that its new portfolio of 802.11ax wireless connectivity
solutions are being leveraged by Broadcom in their recently launched Max
WiFi reference platforms. Skyworks’ innovative modules integrate high
power transmit and low-noise receive amplification with precision switch
capability in an ultra-compact form factor that when paired with a
modem, incorporate all the essential functionality between the
system-on-chip (SoC) and the antenna. Specifically, Skyworks’ 2.4 and
5.0 GHz 802.11ax modules and Broadcom’s Max WiFi solutions provide four
times faster download speeds, six times faster upload speeds, enhanced
coverage and up to seven times longer battery life when compared to
802.11ac Wi-Fi products available in the market today.
“Skyworks is excited to be collaborating with Broadcom to combine our
advanced connectivity engines with their sixth generation Wi-Fi
devices,” said David Stasey, vice president and general manager of
diversified analog solutions for Skyworks. “This strategic partnership
gives our customers a unique opportunity to deliver best-in-class
wireless experiences for consumers across many new markets spanning
multimedia streaming, autonomous cars and augmented/virtual reality.”
Next generation 802.11ax devices have been widely adopted across the
consumer electronics industry, as companies throughout the ecosystem
begin developing solutions and products in support of the new standard.
End applications for the Max WiFi modules include Wi-Fi routers,
residential gateways, enterprise access points, and client devices. One
of the key benefits of the 802.11ax standard is that it allows for a
more robust and dedicated connection with data-intensive applications
such as 4K TV, particularly when multiple users are streaming Wi-Fi
According to ABI Research, 802.11ax devices will account for 57 percent
of Wi-Fi chipsets by 2021.
