D-Link's AC5300 and AC3150 Router Platforms Support Multiple User MIMO and Deliver World's Fastest Networking Speeds

Press Release from Skyworks

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS) an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today announced that it will be the exclusive provider of RF content powering D-Link's next generation 802.11ac Wave 2 devices. The AC5300 (DIR-895L/R) and AC3150 (DIR-885L/R) ultra Wi-Fi routers support tri-band 2.4 and 5 GHz technology, multiple user MIMO and deliver wireless speeds up to 5.3 Gbps and 3.2 Gbps, respectively. The DIR-895L/R is the world's fastest router, facilitating uninterrupted, high definition multimedia streaming in the home.

"As new technologies emerge and more devices become connected within the home, consumers are demanding reliable, high-speed wide area network connections to carry data, voice, video and multimedia content simultaneously," said AJ Wang, CTO of D-Link. "By leveraging Skyworks' leading-edge Wave 2 connectivity solutions, we are able to offer customers the world's fastest networking speeds and Wi-Fi connections for every type of mobile device, enhancing the user experience in the home."

"Skyworks is excited to be partnering with D-Link to revolutionize networking platforms," said John O'Neill, vice president of broad markets for Skyworks. "Our innovative solutions offer best-in-class performance and demonstrate Skyworks continued success across a diverse set of broad markets powering the Internet of Things."

According to a May 2015 Cisco Visual Networking Index Forecast, by 2019 fixed networking devices such as routers will handle approximately 82 percent of all consumer Internet traffic, with total Internet traffic growing by a compounded annual growth rate of 33 percent from 2015 to 2019. By leveraging advanced networking technology from Skyworks and D-Link, users are able to support applications and devices with ever increasing bandwidth demands.

About Skyworks Networking Solutions

SKY85201-11 is an integrated 2.4 to 2.5 GHz single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch with a low-noise amplifier (LNA) intended for wireless applications. The device has a low noise figure, offers the ability to add custom filtering between the switch and LNA blocks and operates at 3.3 V, drawing low current with class leading IIP3. Its small footprint provides the industry's smallest PCB area needed to implement an integrated broadband SPDT switch with LNA functionality.

SKY85405 is a high power 802.11ac WLAN power amplifier with integrated power detector offering superior output power, linearity, and efficiency. The device features an internal band-gap regulator that eliminates the need for an external reference supply. Its packaging offers a highly manufacturable, low-cost solution.

SKY85605-11 is an integrated 4.9 to 5.9 GHz SPDT switch with LNA intended for wireless applications. The device has a low noise figure, offers the ability to add custom filtering between the switch and LNA blocks and operates at 3.3 V, drawing low current with class leading IIP3. Its small footprint provides the industry's smallest PCB area needed to implement an integrated broadband SPDT switch with LNA functionality.

SE2623L-R is a 2.4 GHz power amplifier designed for industrial, scientific, medical (ISM) bands for WLAN applications. The device incorporates a power detector for closed loop monitoring of the output power and includes a digital enable control for device on/off control.
