Next Generation 1218 MHz Products Commercially Available Across Europe; Secures Design Win with Major European OEM

MUNICH– Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today launched its portfolio of cable TV (CATV) infrastructure solutions targeting DOCSIS 3.1 and EuroDOCSIS 3.1 cable applications. Skyworks’ suite of products includes ultra-linear RF amplifiers – the first devices commercially available for frequencies up to 1218 MHz in Europe – optimized to support high signal fidelity. By combining world-class linearity with industry-leading reliability, these products ensure ultra-fast data throughput and high quality streaming while minimizing downtime for Multiple System Operators (MSOs) and paving the way for hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) systems capable of greater data speeds. Skyworks has already secured a key design win with a major European CATV OEM.

ACA1216-RF-Amplifier-for-CATV“The pace of technology is continually changing the way consumers receive information and entertainment,” said Carlos Bori, vice president of sales and marketing for Skyworks. “At Skyworks, we are supporting this massive upsurge in data requirements for consumers around the world via smartphones, the connected car and wearables, as well as equipment and services into the home. With our newest suite of solutions for network operators, Skyworks is addressing the growing CATV market, enabling the delivery of new, high speed data channels while providing MSOs the ability to continue pushing fiber networks deeper into their infrastructure platforms.”

According to Strategy Analytics, consumer demand for new, faster video and broadband services, the global transition to digital and the drive towards new back-end systems are all driving growth in CATV infrastructure networks. Customer subscriptions for digital CATV jumped 18 percent to 16.3 million across Europe in the first half of 2016 alone as subscribers migrate to enhanced services, per Cable Europe and Screen Digest.
