Skyworks Introduces Innovative Front-end Solutions for Smart Energy Applications

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today introduced a family of highly efficient front-end solutions for smart water and gas metering applications. Skyworks’ front-end solutions enable significant size and cost reduction. In addition, many of Skyworks’ front-end solutions allow for plug-and-play functionality, drastically reducing the design time for new products. To date, Skyworks’ solutions are being utilized by 40 tier-one utility and smart energy providers throughout Europe.

“Skyworks’ newest front-end solutions offer increased range, high power efficiency and robust design flexibility – three critical features in smart metering applications,” said Liam K. Griffin, executive vice president and general manager of high performance analog at Skyworks. “Skyworks is delighted to be delivering highly integrated modules that are enabling smart utility grids to improve their capacity and successfully manage customer demand, while allowing consumers to monitor and use energy and water more resourcefully.”

According to the GSMA, the utilities sector is set to invest U.S. $200 billion in smart grids worldwide through 2015 as the need to provide growing populations with enough water and energy – without causing potentially catastrophic damage to the environment – is one of the biggest challenges facing governments and societies worldwide. Systematically using embedded mobile connectivity to create smart utility grids and smart energy environments can improve suppliers’ ability to effectively manage demand and enable consumers and businesses to use resources more efficiently.

About Skyworks’ Front-end Solutions

The SKY65367-11 and SKY66100-11 are 169 to 170 MHz transmit/receive front-end modules (FEM) that are usable in unlicensed bands in Europe. The high performance FEMs include a power amplifier (PA) capable of more than +24 dBm (SKY66100-11) and +30 dBm (SKY65367-11) of transmit output power (VCC = 3.6 volts) at more than 43 percent power added efficiency (SKY65367-11) and more than 50 percent PAE (SKY66100-11) for the module. For current-sensitive applications, the 16-pin, 4 x 4 millimeter multi-chip module PA can be bypassed to save battery current. All functionality can be controlled by a three-wire interface. The highly manufacturable, cost-effective FEMs can also be placed in deep sleep mode to further increase battery life. The receive chain consists of a low-loss single-pole, triple-throw switch, providing an insertion loss of approximately 0.4 dB.

Pricing and Availability

Skyworks’ front-end solutions are currently available for sampling. For pricing, please contact
