Skyworks Solutions, Inc. announced that it is supporting next generation wireless technologies set forth by Wi-Fi Alliance® and developing advanced connectivity solutions designed to meet future requirements. Skyworks offers a family of solutions that address all existing Wi-Fi® standards and is working in Wi-Fi Alliance to develop its Wi-Fi 6E products that operate in the 5.925 to 7.125 GHz frequency range.
As a result of increasing demand for high data applications such as streaming media/TV/audio, social media and smart home devices, there has been an initiative to open up additional frequency bands to complement the existing 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. This new spectrum is expected to be made available by regulators around the world and it represents an opportunity to deliver the benefits of Wi-Fi 6 coupled with increased bandwidth available in the new 6 GHz band.
“The 6 GHz band addresses the growing need for Wi-Fi spectrum capacity to ensure users continue to experience reliable and seamless connectivity,” said Kevin Robinson, SVP of Marketing, Wi-Fi Alliance. “We are glad to see Wi-Fi Alliance members working closely in Wi-Fi Alliance to ensure that new products meet high standards for interoperability and security.”
“Skyworks is leveraging our expertise to produce connectivity solutions that address the insatiable demand for more data and the ever-evolving needs of the market,” said Dave Stasey, vice president and general manager of diversified analog solutions for Skyworks. “We look forward to continuing our tradition of innovation and providing the highest performance solutions for our OEM customers which deliver maximum Wi-Fi range and speeds.”
