Skyworks Launches Mid- and High-power WiFi Power Amplifiers
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high reliability analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, introduced new mid- and high-power (2.4 to 2.5 GHz), highly efficient power amplifiers (PA) for 802.11n multiple in/multiple out (MIMO) access points, routers and gateways. These high-performance, small form factor solutions enable multiple-transmit channels on printed circuit boards (PCBs), offering customers valuable configuration space savings. In addition, the mid-power PA offers two operating points in a single-device, providing maximum customer flexibility when developing platforms that meet varying performance requirements.
“Skyworks’ new and innovative WiFi power amplifiers complement our leadership portfolio of wireless semiconductors,” said Liam K. Griffin, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Skyworks. “These devices highlight Skyworks’ growing suite of WiFi solutions designed to address the expanding opportunities in high-performance gateways, access points, smart phones, media, and emerging mobile Internet access platforms.”
