Skyworks Solutions, Inc | December 07, 2022
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: SWKS), introduced 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 Skyworks’ 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 deliver 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. The Wi-Fi Alliance estimates that Wi-Fi 6/6E will surpass 80% of the total Wi-Fi market by 20251.
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, said 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.
Our digital pre-distortion technology coupled with Skyworks’ ICE FEMs has led to unprecedented performance and efficiency gains,” said Manny Patel, senior director of marketing at Broadcom. “This collaboration with Skyworks enables our customers to deliver high-speed connectivity in the cutting-edge end markets that rely on these technologies.
Delivering to consumers award-winning routers that offer great speeds, killer gaming features and effortless connectivity requires using components that readily address the thermal challenges found in today’s industrial designs,” said Tenlong Deng, corporate vice president, general manager of Networking and Wireless Devices Business Unit at ASUS. “Integrating Skyworks ICE FEMs in our designs allows us to bring cutting-edge technologies with optimized performance in a small footprint to best meet the needs of our Wi-Fi customers.
“Skyworks offers flexible products with high performance and low power consumption to meet the latest market trends, We integrated Skyworks ICE front-end modules into our high-performance Wi-Fi 6E routers for improved power efficiency and reduced heat from its electronic components. Working closely with Skyworks allows us to deliver excellent, high-quality products that our customers have come to expect from TP-Link.”
-Pingji Li, general manager of International Product Business Group at TP-Link.
By implementing Skyworks ICE front-end modules in our designs, we are able to reduce power consumption and enable better heat dissipation resulting in a high-end solution that meets the stringent needs of our customers,” said Jaewook Kim, SCM vice president at Humax. “Our long-standing strategic partnership with Skyworks has been invaluable to our ability to provide broadcasting companies and mobile carriers with the high-quality video gateways, set-top boxes and broadband gateways they demand.

Powered by a rechargeable lithium battery, the AV70 is a must have accessory for people who are always on the go, enjoy streaming entertainment or use video conferencing for personal and business use. It's great for conference calls on Zoom®, Microsoft Teams®, Facetime® or other video calling systems. It is also ideal for use while watching videos on a tablet or laptop computer – producing rich, full-range music and soundtracks while clarifying dialogue.
"The use of video conferencing exploded during the first year of the COVID crisis. But many people had trouble understanding what was being said, On important business conference meetings, and on millions of family video calls, folks kept asking what did she say? Our little AccuVoice conference speaker fixes that."

Noted ZVOX Audiology Consultant, Dr. Thomas Powers, Ph.D. Hearing and understanding speech clearly is a major challenge for seniors with mild to moderately severe hearing loss, as well as anyone using tablets, laptops, speakerphones, and similar devices. The issue has become so common that many people just hope to pick up the missing words or phrase from the context going forward. The technology in the AV70 speaker provides an ideal solution for this growing problem. Whether you're using a tablet or laptop to watch a movie, or participating in a Zoom or Board meeting, or just talking to a loved on the phone, the AV70 can make an enormous difference.
ZVOX's Proprietary AccuVoice Technology Clarifies Dialogue
Using a version of the AccuVoice technology that ZVOX utilizes in its advanced hearing aids and home entertainment A/V speakers, the AV70 both boosts audio frequencies in the range of speech and suppresses background noise. AccuVoice technology literally "lifts" dialogue out of phone calls or TV programming, so voices can be heard more clearly and succinctly. The net result is that words stand out and are easier to understand.Versatility is the AV70's middle name. The speaker is Bluetooth capable and can handle a wired connection as well. Simple topside buttons allow for the activation/deactivation of AccuVoice, volume, pause/restart video – and even phone answer and hang-up.
ZVOX: A New Kind of Hearing Company.
Committed to enhancing and discovering hearing solutions for almost 20 years, ZVOX was founded in 2003 by two long-time consumer electronics veterans. From its start as a traditional home theater speaker company, ZVOX soon gained success and industry recognition for its line of critically acclaimed sound bars and SoundBases. In 2014, ZVOX introduced a landmark technology that would change the company's focus and establish it as the unrivalled leader in dialogue clarity enhancement. ZVOX's patented AccuVoice technology uses advanced algorithms to mimic the function of a hearing aid, resulting in a dramatically new level of dialogue boosting and voice clarity. With the launch of its first AccuVoice TV Speaker, ZVOX created a new category of dialogue clarifying soundbars, speakers and headphones and found a broader audience among the over-fifty demographic and consumers with mild hearing loss. Today ZVOX offers a variety of hearing-related products including speakers, wireless headphones, and hearing aids. Based in Swampscott, MA.
