SMT Discrete Semiconductors
Skyworks Launches Family of SMT Discrete Semiconductors for High Performance Mixer and Detector Applications
Industry’s Smallest and Lowest Profile Packaged RF Schottky 0201 Diodes Ideal for Commercial and Military Markets
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling mobile connectivity, today introduced the industry’s smallest and lowest profile packaged silicon radio frequency (RF) Schottky diodes in a 0201 surface mount technology (SMT) footprint.
This new family of ultra-miniature and high-performance packaged diodes, which is priced comparably to traditional plastic packages, is ideal for a wide range of high-volume and cost-sensitive applications including CATV/DBS set-top boxes, microwave radios, RFID tags, wireless infrastructure and embedded WLAN 802.11a/b/g/n modules.
“Skyworks’ breakthrough technology enables discrete packaged RF diodes with a much lower profile and higher frequency operation than traditional plastic packaging,” said David Stasey, Skyworks’ vice president of Analog Components. “This results in a cost competitive, high performance, and small footprint solution that suits our customers who service a broad range of applications.”
