Skyworks Ships Over 150 Million BAW Filter-Enabled Modules

IRVINE, CALIF.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: SWKS), an innovator of high-performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, today announced that the Company has reached a milestone with the shipment of over 150 million bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filter-enabled modules for 5G mobile solutions.

To prepare for the transition to 5G, Skyworks has focused efforts on the development of advanced in-house BAW technology which is supported through its design teams, fabs and proprietary IP.

As noted by a recent GSM Arena[1] article and according to Strategy Analytics[2], 5G smartphones are expected to take up a much larger portion of global shipments this year, growing more than tenfold to an estimated 15 percent of all smartphone shipments, up from just 1 percent in 2019.

Our BAW technology expands the reach across the Skyworks product portfolio and represents the culmination of years-long investment from which the Company has secured multiple design wins with market leading customers. In addition, Skyworks will leverage BAW technology across our broad portfolio bringing even greater value to customers.

“This key achievement marks the success of our long-term investment, commitment and strategy as a company – driving towards world-class BAW technology and performance,” said Joel King, senior vice president and general manager of Mobile Solutions at Skyworks. “Coupled with our industry-leading TC-SAW capabilities, the addition of high-performance BAW delivers to our customers a truly differentiated RF front-end solution, with an architecture that aggressively scales across other platforms.”

Skyworks’ high-reliability, field-proven 8-inch BAW filter production line supports the challenging needs driven by the growth in 5G, adoption of Wi-Fi 6E and the expansion of filters required in next-generation smartphones, IoT devices and automotive applications.The technical merits of our solutions will further enhance RF performance and efficiency enabling 5G devices with superior connectivity and battery life.
