Skyworks Expands Family of Antenna Switch Modules
Skyworks Solutions Inc. introduced a new family of antenna switch modules (ASM) for dual- and triple-mode smart phones, tablets and datacards. These newest devices cover a wide range of applications from low-cost 3G handsets to HSPA+/LTE-enabled datacentric devices such as high-end smart phones, data dongles and tablets, all of which require design flexibility, high performance and cost-effective architectures. Skyworks’ comprehensive RF switch products are based on both gallium arsenide (GaAs) and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technologies and complement its world-class front-end and power amplifier module portfolio, allowing the company to capture additional dollar content per platform.
“Skyworks is excited to be augmenting our broad GaAs and silicon-based RF front-end solutions portfolio with these new SOI devices that help address real market needs and enhance performance requirements,” said Gregory L. Waters, Executive Vice President and General Manager of front-end solutions at Skyworks. “Our ability to meet customers’ needs on multiple fronts and with highly integrated architectures, demonstrates the breadth and depth of Skyworks’ technology and capabilities in this demanding market.”
