Skyworks supports Google’s Nexus One mobile phone

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 several of its highly integrated 3G power amplifier modules are being incorporated in Google’s Nexus One mobile phone as part of HTC Corp’s reference design.

HTC is behind many of the most popular operator-branded devices on the market, having established unique partnerships with the five leading operators in Europe, the top four in the Unites States, and many of Asia's fast-growing operators.

Google’s newest Android-based handset is thin, light and fast, delivering speeds up to 1GHz. Features include a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus, flash and geotagging, as well as onboard and expandable memory, noise suppression, and a stereo headphone jack with four contacts for inline voice and remote control.

“Our participation in this platform demonstrates Skyworks’ ability to work with leading handset manufacturers, smart phone providers as well as reference design partners,” says Liam K. Griffin, senior VP of sales and marketing. “We are pleased to broaden our support within the high-growth smart phone segment,” he adds. “These platforms have forged the way to 3G and 4G adoption, while being endorsed by consumers as the preferred path for mobile Internet access.”
