Wi-Fi 6/6E front-end modules offer superior power efficiency

Semiconductor company Skyworks Solutions has introduced what it says is the industry’s highest efficiency portfolio of Wi-Fi front-end modules (FEMs) addressing the power, performance and thermal requirements of Wi-Fi 6/6E-enabled devices in next-generation enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) products. Leveraging the company’s lab-to-fab design process and the advanced signal processing capabilities in Broadcom’s family of Wi-Fi 6/6E solutions, the Skyworks ICE (Incredible Current & Efficiency) FEMs are offered as delivering substantial improvements in processing speed, latency and system-level power efficiency.

In addition to enhancing mobile device capabilities, Wi-Fi 6/6E is driving improved connectivity for IoT, private networks and deployments in dense public areas as well as across new products. Wi-Fi 6/6E devices are typically equipped with multiple radio System-on-Chips (SoCs) driving up to 16 radio frequency streams and FEMs. To dissipate the heat generated by these high-performance Wi-Fi systems often housed in small industrial form factors, manufacturers were previously forced to compromise between performance, the cost of thermal management, size and design aesthetic.

“Skyworks ICE FEMs, coupled with Broadcom’s Wi-Fi silicon, enable manufacturers to deliver a dramatic and material reduction in overall power dissipation, reducing product cost and simultaneously contributing to a greener planet,” says John O’Neill, vice president of marketing at Skyworks. “These product advancements allow equipment providers to offer more sustainable products, smaller form factors, enhanced reliability and superior performance as compared to any alternative solutions.”

Skyworks will be exhibiting at the Consumer Electronics Show Booth No. 10850, taking place in Las Vegas from Jan. 5-8, 2023.
