LTE smartphones enjoy faster download speeds

The family of Diversity Receive Modules (DRx), from Skyworks, integrates multiple low loss RF switches, receive SAW filters and LNAs to dramatically enhance downlink data rates in LTE advanced MIMO systems. Amplifying the receive signal without increasing noise enhances receiver sensitivity, resulting in benefits for carriers, who will experience improved network efficiency, and consumers, who will enjoy considerably faster download speeds.

Approximately three quarters of worldwide network traffic on mobile devices is on the downlink or receive side. Skyworks’ highly integrated DRx modules minimise data throughput, minimise complexity and reduce overall footprint, thereby helping mobile communication networks deliver increasing amounts of data, faster.

David Stasey, Vice President and General Manager of Analog Solutions, Skyworks, commented: “Skyworks is delivering analogue innovation and pushing the performance envelope. Our diversity receive modules create a performance differentiator for LTE applications and demonstrate Skyworks’ device and systems level expertise, expanding product portfolio and integration capabilities.  Further, we continue to capitalise on the need for highly specialised solutions that are driving significantly higher addressable content opportunities.”

Skyworks' DRx solutions are currently available for both sampling and production.
