Skyworks Delivers Front-End Solutions for Internet of Things Applications | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #API

New high performance, fully integrated front-end modules targeting the rapidly expanding Internet of Things market

Skyworks Solutions, Inc., has launched a suite of new high performance, fully integrated front-end modules targeting the rapidly expanding Internet of Things market including the connected home, industrial automation and energy management, among others. Skyworks' newest modules are the first in a series of solutions powering multimode operation for next generation Bluetooth®, Thread and ZigBee® wireless networking protocols. When paired with System on a Chip (SoC) platforms, the devices deliver an efficient wireless solution, maximizing battery life while simultaneously increasing the transmission range with improved power. To date, several leading SoC providers are leveraging these high performance front-end modules as part of their reference designs.

"With consumers and enterprises requiring seamless connectivity, there is strong market demand for highly integrated, performance-driven analog solutions delivering significantly improved range and battery life," said John O'Neill, vice president of marketing for Skyworks. "Skyworks is pleased to be offering the first front-end modules that support multiple protocols, including the soon to be launched Bluetooth® 5, while also addressing the most popular broadband platforms and Internet of Things applications."

In a recent report, ABI Research has forecast the global wireless connectivity market (excluding cellular connectivity) will reach more than 10 billion annual IC shipments by 2021. With the introduction of Bluetooth® mesh functionality, evolving Wi-Fi protocols, enhancements to 802.15.4 (such as ZigBee® 3.0 and Thread) and the development of multi-protocol SoC solutions, there are a multitude of new opportunities in nearly every vertical market. Analysts forecast the global ZigBee® home automation market alone to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 26 percent from 2016-2020.
