Skyworks Solutions Press Release - August 4, 2009
Skyworks Unveils New Varactor Diodes for Mobile Handset DTV Receivers, FM Tuners and Oscillators
− IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) − August 4, 2009 – Skyworks Solutions, Inc.
(NASDAQ: SWKS), Skyworks is pleased to introduce two new varactor diodes for use in diverse applications such as
mobile handset based DTV receivers, FM tuners, and low phase noise voltage-controlled oscillators. Available from
stock, these new diodes offer high breakdown voltage, enabling tuning as high as 28 volts. In addition, these
Pb-free packaging devices offer:
• Low reverse leakage current
• Wide-tuning range
• High-capacitance ratio
• Industry standard SC-79 footprint
The SMV1800-079LF and SMV1801-079LF are silicon
hyperabrupt junction diodes designed for use in battery operated portable devices. The specified high-capacitance
ratio and low resistance of these varactors make them ideal for wideband VCOs used in wireless systems operating
in excess of 2.5 GHz. In addition, these new diodes provide tighter control of the critical diode capacitance
versus voltage specifications than competing diode solutions -- enabling much more repeatable tuning sensitivity
within low phase noise VHF and UHF VCOs. Additional applications include analog/digital TV tuners within GSM, PCS
and CDMA handsets, and portable computing devices such as laptops and netbooks.
Datasheets are available

information relating to future results and expectations of Skyworks (including certain projections and business
trends). Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as "anticipates," "expects,"
"forecasts," "intends," "believes," "plans," "may," "will," "continue," similar expressions, and variations or
negatives of these words. All such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause
actual results to differ materially and adversely from those projected, and may affect our future operating
results, financial position and cash flows.
These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to:
unprecedented uncertainty regarding global economic and financial market conditions; the susceptibility of the
wireless semiconductor industry and the markets addressed by our, and our customers', products to economic
downturns; the timing, rescheduling or cancellation of significant customer orders and our ability, as well as the
ability of our customers, to manage inventory; losses or curtailments of purchases or payments from key customers,
or the timing of customer inventory adjustments; changes in laws, regulations and/or policies in the United States
that could adversely affect financial markets and our ability to raise capital; our ability to develop,
manufacture and market innovative products in a highly price competitive and rapidly changing technological
environment; economic, social and political conditions in the countries in which we, our customers or our
suppliers operate, including security and health risks, possible disruptions in transportation networks and
fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; fluctuations in our manufacturing yields due to our complex and
specialized manufacturing processes; delays or disruptions in production due to equipment maintenance, repairs
and/or upgrades; our reliance on several key customers for a large percentage of our sales; fluctuations in the
manufacturing yields of our third party semiconductor foundries and other problems or delays in the fabrication,
assembly, testing or delivery of our products; the availability and pricing of third party semiconductor foundry,
assembly and test capacity and raw materials; our ability to timely and accurately predict market requirements and
evolving industry standards, and to identify opportunities in new markets; uncertainties of litigation, including
potential disputes over intellectual property infringement and rights, as well as payments related to the
licensing and/or sale of such rights; our ability to rapidly develop new products and avoid product obsolescence;
our ability to retain, recruit and hire key executives, technical personnel and other employees in the positions
and numbers, with the experience and capabilities, and at the compensation levels needed to implement our business
and product plans; lengthy product development cycles that impact the timing of new product introductions;
unfavorable changes in product mix; the quality of our products and any remediation costs; shorter than expected
product life cycles; problems or delays that we may face in shifting our products to smaller geometry process
technologies and in achieving higher levels of design integration; and our ability to continue to grow and
maintain an intellectual property portfolio and obtain needed licenses from third parties, as well as other risks
and uncertainties, including but not limited to those detailed from time to time in our filings with the
Securities and Exchange Commission.
These forward-looking statements are made
