Skyworks Solutions, Inc. an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, has expanded its portfolio of small cell solutions with the addition of new, high efficiency power amplifiers targeting License Assisted Access (LAA) and LTE unlicensed (LTE-U) spectrum for LTE-Advanced base stations. With leading wireless carriers and telecommunications manufacturers transitioning from 4G to 5G networks and deploying new equipment, there is an increasing demand for efficient, highly integrated system architectures to support emerging requirements. They enable small cells to easily meet Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) standards. When combined with the pin-to-pin compatible SKY6629x small cell product family, they are able to support all 3GPP bands.
“Skyworks is focused on developing the most advanced solutions for 5G base stations,” said John O’Neill, vice president of marketing for Skyworks. “As our highly innovative small cell amplifiers demonstrate, we are addressing challenging infrastructure performance requirements for next generation networks. At a higher level, Skyworks is driving connectivity across diverse applications within the wireless ecosystem, ultimately enhancing the consumer experience.”
