Skyworks Surpasses Two Billion Power Amplifier Module Shipments
Woburn, MA — Skyworks Solutions, Inc., an innovator of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling mobile connectivity, recently announced that it has shipped more than two billion power amplifier (PA) modules since product inception near the turn of the decade. The company is an architectural pioneer of PA and complete front-end modules (FEM) and today uniquely supplies to each of the world's top five handset OEMs and two leading smartphone manufacturers. At the same time, Skyworks has developed design partnerships with all of the industry's leading baseband suppliers and, most recently, has captured key sockets on Qualcomm and MediaTek reference designs.
"We are thrilled to surpass the two billion PA module mark and are even more excited about the design-win traction of our next generation of multimode Intera front-end modules," said Liam K. Griffin, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Skyworks. "Given the strength of our product pipeline, Skyworks is benefiting from the trend towards highly integrated, multi-band FEMs for 3G, EDGE, LTE and WLAN applications. In fact, new product ramps of our content-rich Intera portfolio coupled with our diversification initiatives is positioning Skyworks to outpace our addressable markets this quarter and moving forward."
Skyworks is a market leader in delivering switching solutions and PA modules in gallium arsenide (GaAs) pseudomorphic high electron mobile transistor (pHEMT) and heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT). Through Skyworks' integration of these devices, the company has created a complete line of Intera FEMs, which includes connectivity solutions for GSM, GPRS, EDGE and WCDMA, as well as CDMA, WLAN and WiMAX applications.
