Skyworks expands filter operations in Japan

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) is expanding production capacity in Japan to meet growing demand for its filter technology.

Skyworks is facilitizing a two-storey 405,000ft2 facility in Osaka that will house the design, development and manufacture of filter devices to complement its front-end solutions and assembly, test & packaging capabilities. The facility will be fully operational by September.

Skyworks reckons that, with the additional capacity, it is well positioned to offer differentiated architectures for the most demanding customer applications where high-performance filter technology is required - addressing the stringent technical challenges associated with tighter band spacing and coexistence across low-, mid- and high-band LTE frequencies.

"Skyworks' investment in filter capacity reflects our commitment to delivering the world's most highly integrated, cost-efficient and shortest cycle-time front-end solutions," says chairman & CEO David J. Aldrich. "Given the increasing importance of filters to our target markets and customers, we are expanding our internal capability to meet current and future demand in a world-class environment," he adds. "At a higher level, our enhanced capability aligns with our unique business model of combining above-market top-line growth with the best-in-class financial returns of a diversified analog semiconductor company," he adds.
