  1. The Future Of IoT Will Require LTE Connectivity

    As the promise of a wirelessly connected world becomes a reality, there is a growing need for LTE technologies that address low cost, long battery life, security, and reduced complexity — all critical components for IoT.

  2. 5G New Radio Solutions: Revolutionary Applications Here Sooner Than You Think

    5G technologies promise to deliver higher data throughput, extremely low latency, and speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G. This paper explores the practical first steps of a roll out and focuses on the spectrum below 6 GHz as standards for millimeter-wave applications have yet to be determined.

  3. Top 10 Small Cell Infrastructure Questions

    While small cells offer a host of benefits, they also create heat issues. Power-efficient power amplifiers offer a compelling solution to this dilemma. This Q&A sheds light on some trends and challenges in today’s small cell market and uncovers the power-efficient PA’s role in overcoming these challenges.

  4. 5G In Perspective: A Pragmatic Guide To What's Next

    The world’s communications and other connected technologies are evolving rapidly toward 5G in the hope of bringing about new and exciting solutions for deep learning, artificial intelligence, and “ambient awareness.” 

  5. High Gain Phototransistor Optocouplers For Space Applications

    One of the first optocouplers used for high reliability applications was the simple phototransistor optocoupler. The basic devices were the 4N22, 23, 24 and the 4N47, 48, 49 series of hermetic phototransistor optocouplers in TO‐five type transistor cans made for military applications developed in the early 1970s. However, these devices were never designed specifically for space radiation environments. By Steve Ching and Manor Narayanan, Isolink, a subsidiary of Skyworks Solutions, Inc.

  6. Ultra Low Noise Amplifiers

    This white paper provides information on two of Skyworks’ ultra-low noise amplifiers; the SKY67150-396LF and the SKY671513-396LF.
