Wi-Fi 6 is the newest 802.11 wireless standard that is pushing the performance envelope with speeds up to 30 percent faster than the previous 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) protocol. These state-of-the-art routers accommodate the growing number of cloud devices and users in today’s connected home by optimizing overall efficiency and data throughput. Skyworks’ powerful modules facilitate this enhanced functionality with best-in-class linearity and performance in the smallest footprint available.
“Skyworks has decades of experience developing cutting-edge technologies for successive wireless standards and we are proud to partner with industry leaders to bring next generation products to the market, particularly as Wi-Fi 6 quickly gains momentum,” said Dave Stasey, vice president and general manager of diversified analog solutions for Skyworks. “Faster, more reliable and efficient Wi-Fi coverage is becoming increasingly important as more and more devices and users are connected in smart homes. Our portfolio of high performance solutions provides our customers with all the required functionality to deliver maximum Wi-Fi range and speeds to address the need for always-on connectivity.”
According to ABI Research estimates, Wi-Fi 6 chipset shipments are expected to grow from approximately 127 million units in 2019 to close to 2 billion units by 2024, representing a compounded annual growth rate of approximately 73 percent.
