"Today's mobile and IoT devices are now supporting up to 20 bands and require both seamless and robust Wi-Fi functionality to meet growing requirements from carrier offload, voice over IP and other bandwidth-intensive applications," said David Stasey, general manager and vice president of Diversified Analog Solutions at Skyworks. "Building upon our highly successful SkyOne® cellular platforms, Skyworks is now pleased to offer Wi-Fi solutions that deliver optimum levels of integration and performance."

According to ABI Research, more than 20 billion Wi-Fi chipsets are expected to be shipped between 2016 and 2021, particularly as Wi-Fi solutions expand beyond their traditional usage applications, frequency bands, device types and performance requirements. They also expect more than 95 percent of devices shipped in 2021 to support 5 GHz Wi-Fi, signifying increased spectrum sharing with cellular technologies.
