Skyworks Solutions, Inc. recently announced a new addition to its SkyOne cellular platform, a new suite of next-generation SkyOne Ultra 3.0 devices for delivering high-bandwidth LTE connectivity to advanced automotive applications such as vehicle-to-everything (V2X) services. The new portfolio supports all global cellular bands, exceeds LTE CAT 16 requirements, and is scalable to 5G New Radio (5G NR) standards. The portfolio, compatible with leading chipset providers and with a simplified compliance process, reduces design complexity and time to market, said Skyworks.
SkyOne Ultra 3.0 was designed as a one-stop shop for automotive connectivity and provides key analog and RF functionality for both transmit and receive paths of LTE communications. Transmit devices feature integrated duplexes (PAMiDs), low-noise amplifiers (LNAs), antenna switches, and power amplifier modules with SkyBlue technology to deliver more efficient performance, while diversity receive modules feature LNAs, antenna switches, filters, and other required components within the LTE receive path.
The entire cellular solution is housed in a package size measuring less than 40 × 40 mm, which is key to meeting automotive-qualified network-attached device (NAD) requirements, said Skyworks. The connectivity engines can be optimized for regions like North America, China, Europe, and other parts of the world
