Skyworks surpasses 2 billion power amplifier module shipments

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA, which manufactures linear products, power amplifiers, front-end modules and radio solutions for handset and infrastructure equipment, says that it has shipped more than 2 billion power amplifier (PA) modules since product inception near the turn of the decade.

The firm claims to be an architectural pioneer of PA and complete front-end modules (FEM), and uniquely supplies to each of the world’s top five handset original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and two leading smartphone manufacturers. Skyworks says that it has also 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 even more excited about the design-win traction of our next-generation of multi-mode Intera front-end modules,” says Liam K. Griffin, senior VP of sales and marketing. “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,” he adds. “New product ramps of our content-rich Intera portfolio, coupled with our diversification initiatives, are positioning Skyworks to outpace our addressable markets this quarter and moving forward.”
