Skyworks Solutions, a producer of analog semiconductors, announced that its family of connectivity modules are now powering the emerging 5G Massive Internet of Things (Massive IoT) market. 

Skyworks’ SKY66430-11 is the world’s smallest, fully certified all-in-one device, according to the company. It incorporates a multi-band, multi-chip system-in-package (SiP) enabling cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT (half-duplex FDD) architectures. The SiP has been certified by leading worldwide carriers including KDDI, NTT Docomo, SoftBank and Verizon.

Low-power, wide area network (LPWAN) capability is necessary for consumer products that include smartwatches, wearables and asset trackers, as well as industrial and infrastructure applications.
