Skyworks Solutions Inc. has announced that Taiwan-based Chi Mei Communication Systems Inc. will leverage Skyworks' revolutionary SKY74117 DCR RF transceiver as it ramps its next-generation handsets. Chi Mei, an original design manufacturer (ODM), will develop these phones for customer distribution across Asia.

Based on technology pioneered by Skyworks, the SKY74117 DCR incorporates all the required transmit and receive chain functionality in a single chip that is roughly one-fourth the size of a postage stamp, reducing external device requirements from about 50 to less than 25 components. The solution complements the company's complete radio portfolio supporting CDMA and gsm/gprs/edge, while providing a seamless migration path to W-CDMA.

Skyworks' complete GSM/GPRS RF subsystem also offers the flexibility to be combined with virtually any baseband solution currently available on the market without requiring any special processing interfaces. In addition to stand-alone applications, the subsystem's two modules are integral building blocks in the company's family of cellular system solutions, as well as its Single Package Radio (SPR(TM)) products that combine all of the radio circuitry required for GSM/GPRS handsets into a single compact package.
