“With the introduction of SkyOne ® Ultra 3.0 for automotive, Skyworks is enabling the full benefit of high-speed data and real-time communication in the connected car,” said Joel King, senior vice president and general manager of mobile solutions for Skyworks. “At a higher level, in-vehicle technologies and rapidly changing standards are being adopted at a pace previously unheard of in the automotive industry – particularly with the advent of 5G and the move toward autonomous driving. Our differentiated portfolio takes seamless connectivity to the next level, making the driving experience increasingly smarter and safer.”
Embedded navigation systems, diagnostic capabilities, personalization services and other smart features are fueling consumer demand for connected cars. In fact, IHS Markit forecasts that worldwide sales will increase from 24 million units in 2015 to more than 72 million by 2023. Placing this growth in perspective, in eight years nearly 70 percent of the passenger vehicles sold will be transmitting data with external sources, bringing new services and business models to automotive markets.
About SkyOne ® Ultra 3.0 for Automotive
SkyOne ® Ultra 3.0 incorporates the key analog and RF functionality in both transmit and receive paths of LTE communications. Transmit devices contain power amplifier modules with SkyBlue ™ technology for improved efficiency, as well as integrated duplexers (PAMiDs), low noise amplifiers (LNAs) and antenna switches. Diversity receive (DRx) modules combine the necessary components within the LTE receive path including LNAs, filters and antenna switches. The complete cellular solution is contained in a package of less than 40 mm x 40 mm, a critical element in meeting automotive-qualified network attached device (NAD) reliability requirements. Further, the connectivity engines can be regionally optimized for North American, European, Chinese and other SKUs to achieve additional cost savings.SKYA230xx – Front-end modules with SkyBlue ™ enabling technology, LNAs and integrated duplexers SKYA220xx – Suite of power amplifiers SKYA250xx – DRx and MIMO modules SKYA21xxx – Discrete switches and LNA products
