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