Skyworks Partners with ASUS to Launch World’s First Ultra-fast Wi-Fi 6E Extended Band Router
A report from
Skyworks’ innovative Wi-Fi 6E solutions expedite time-to-market by incorporating all the required functionality to deliver the maximum-allowed performance and contain a logarithmic power detector to support wide dynamic ranges, low power consumption and improved thermal management. Our Wi-Fi 6E wireless products are enabling faster download and upload speeds along with enhanced coverage, highly reliable connectivity in dense traffic areas and improved power efficiency.
ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 is the world’s first Wi-Fi 6E router. Designed with three concurrent frequency bands of operation and 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 supports speeds of up to 11 gigabit-per-second and features WAN aggregation for wired connectivity up to 2 gigabit-per-second. With 4x4 Wi-Fi 6 and a 2.5 gigabit-per-second wired LAN port, both wired and wireless networks can achieve sustained speeds of more than 1 gigabit-per-second, bringing true multi-gigabit performance to life. Bringing the industry-leading design to life, the GT-AXE11000 leverages Skyworks’ latest 6 GHz front-end modules to maximize RF performance in signal coverage, quality and power efficiency.
“This year people have been spending more time than ever at home working, learning and playing, and for gamers this has also meant seeking out the latest and greatest gear to level up their play,” said Ten-Long Deng, corporate vice president of
“Faster, highly reliable and efficient Wi-Fi coverage has never been more important as more and more devices and users have shifted to virtually connecting while staying safe at home,” said
Wi-Fi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, which offers three-times more bandwidth than the 5 GHz band. It also adds seven new 160 MHz channels to the current Wi-Fi 6 standard, provides lower latency, and will be dedicated to Wi-Fi 6E devices for maintaining high speeds that will not be affected by legacy devices.
Part of our portfolio of Wi-Fi 6E products, Skyworks’ SKY85780-11 and SKY85784-11 are highly integrated, front-end modules (FEM) incorporating a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) transmit/receive (T/R) switch, a high-gain low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass, and a power amplifier (PA) intended for high-power Wi-Fi 6E applications and systems. Built in a compact, 24-pin 3 x 5 mm package, these FEMs may reduce the front-end board space by more than 50% making them ideal for routers, gateways and wireless audio/video applications.
