Skyworks enables next generation of connected homes

Skyworks Solutions, an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, has announced that its broad product portfolio is rapidly being adopted by connected home and mesh network providers.

Skyworks’ highly integrated systems are being leveraged by Amazon, Asus, AT&T/DIRECTV, Bosch, GE, Google, Netgear, Plume and Sonos to enable faster, seamless access and extend wireless ranges. Applications vary from voice assistants to home security systems, smart thermostats, wireless audio speakers, smart TVs, set-top boxes and emerging Wi-Fi mesh network radio nodes. Skyworks’ advanced modules simplify complex interoperability challenges by addressing all key protocols including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Thread and ZigBee.

“The increasing proliferation of connected home technology presents Skyworks with limitless opportunities to exploit our systems expertise across all wireless standards and create unique solutions differentiated by performance and integration,” said Carlos Bori, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Skyworks. “Skyworks is delighted to continue fueling connectivity within the home through innovative architectures that are helping global brands introduce revolutionary Internet of Things services to enhance everyday life.”

According to a Cisco report, the consumer home segment could account for nearly half of all M2M connections, or nearly 5.8 billion in 2020, up from 2.4 billion in 2015. KBV research estimates that the global wireless mesh network market is expected to reach $8.9 billion by 2023, representing a compounded annual growth rate of 10 percent from 2017.
