Skyworks Launches Sky5 LiTE For Universal 5G Deployments

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today introduced Sky5™ LiTE—the industry’s first fully integrated front-end solution for mass tier 5G cellular applications. With improved RF performance in a uniquely compact package, Skyworks’ newest device simplifies designs, enabling faster deployment. The baseband agnostic platform supports up to 100 MHz wide bandwidth of 5G new radio (NR) waveforms with flexible power management options—delivering high-speed network experiences with optimized efficiency and near zero latency. Targeted for mass markets, Sky5™ LiTE interfaces with all leading chipset providers and equips early 5G adopters with differentiated architectures for an open ecosystem – the favored approach when compared with closed, sole-sourced RF front-end products. With the recent introduction of Sky5™ Ultra for premium applications, Skyworks offers the most comprehensive 5G portfolio in the market.
