Skyworks Solutions, Inc., (NASDAQ:SWKS) an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today introduced its next generation solutions for smart energy and industrial, scientific and medical markets. Skyworks’ newest devices are high performance front-end modules (FEMs) that incorporate a complete transmit/receive chain with associated switching, filtering and logic. Given their high output power and power added efficiency (PAE), this new family of FEMs is ideal for utility infrastructure platforms such as smart meters, which are battery powered and require fast on/off transitions.

“Skyworks is at the forefront of the innovative technology enabling many of today’s smart energy platforms, from smart meters to advanced metering infrastructure systems,” said John O’Neill, vice president of broad markets for Skyworks. “Skyworks is delighted that our newest solutions are being leveraged by several customers to create differentiated devices and enable operational efficiencies across multiple gas and water metering applications.”

Smart meters are digital meters that send energy usage information from the customer site to a utility company via radio frequency. These newer digital electronic devices are capable of tracking and recording a customer’s energy usage as well as communicating with the energy supplier. Smart meters help to reduce meter reading and connection costs as well as inefficiencies in operations and billing.

According to a Business Intelligence (BI) report, smart meters have become one of the leading Internet of Things (IoT) devices and will account for 10 percent of IoT shipments this year. Globally, BI expects the number of smart meters to grow from an installed base of 454 million in 2015 to 930 million by 2020, representing a five-year compound annual growth rate of 15 percent. Many of these devices will be enabled by Skyworks’ technology.
