Skyworks ramping production to enable over 40 M transponders
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high reliability analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, announced it has introduced analog solutions for low-noise receivers being used in high-sensitivity radio frequency (RF) automotive highway tag applications, including toll tag transponder systems. Skyworks’ devices are being deployed across 40 million transponders supporting small signal RF applications where primary DC power is not available.
“Skyworks is delighted to be delivering our analog solutions across new and diverse markets,” said Liam K. Griffin, executive vice president and general manager of high performance analog at Skyworks. “Electronic toll collection systems represent yet another application that leverages Skyworks’ wireless expertise to combine the benefits of RFID, microwave technology and satellite positioning to enable increased interoperability, particularly as cities and transportation agencies look to reduce costs, ease traffic congestion, improve safety and minimize environmental impacts.”
Skyworks’ solutions are ideal for other RF mixer and power detection wireless applications including 802.11 wireless networking, CATV/Satcom, infrastructure, medical, military and test/measurement.
