Skyworks Unveils Industry's First High Efficiency LAA/LTE-U Solution for Small Cells

Devices Support High Growth Infrastructure Segment; Leveraged by Analog Devices, Inc. in Reference Design

HONOLULU--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today expanded its portfolio of small cell solutions with the addition of new, high efficiency power amplifiers targeting License Assisted Access (LAA) and LTE unlicensed (LTE-U) spectrum for LTE-Advanced base stations. With leading wireless carriers and telecommunications manufacturers transitioning from 4G to 5G networks and deploying new equipment, there is an increasing demand for efficient, highly integrated system architectures to support emerging requirements. Skyworks' innovative devices offer four times higher efficiency than competing products available in the market today and enable small cells to easily meet Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) standards. When combined with the pin-to-pin compatible SKY6629x small cell product family, Skyworks is able to support all 3GPP bands. Analog Devices, Inc. is leveraging this power amplifier family for its AD9375 small cell radio reference design with integrated digital pre-distortion, offering customers a single platform with the highest efficiency and linearity available in the industry.

"Skyworks is focused on developing the most advanced solutions for 5G base stations," said John O'Neill, vice president of marketing for Skyworks. "As our highly innovative small cell amplifiers demonstrate, we are addressing challenging infrastructure performance requirements for next generation networks. At a higher level, Skyworks is driving connectivity across diverse applications within the wireless ecosystem, ultimately enhancing the consumer experience."

According to an estimate from Small Cell Forum, small cell shipments are expected to more than double from a base of 3.8 million units in 2016 to 7.8 million units by 2020, creating a $6 billion market segment.
