Skyworks Solutions Press Release - May 25, 2010

Skyworks Launches Mid- and High-Power WiFi Power Amplifiers

Solutions Ideally Suited for 802.11n Access Points, Routers and Gateways

Click to visit Skyworks Solutions SKY65152-11 (20-pin, 6 x 6 mm) and the SKY65165-11 (16-pin, 3 x 3 mm)ANAHEIM, Calif. (IEEE MTT-S 2010) May 25, 2010 – Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high reliability analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today introduced new mid- and high-power (2.4 - 2.5 gigahertz), highly efficient power amplifiers (PAs) for 802.11n multiple in/multiple out (MIMO) access points, routers and gateways. These high-performance, small form factor solutions enable multiple-transmit channels on printed circuit boards (PCBs), offering customers valuable configuration space savings. In addition, the mid-power PA offers two operating points in a single-device, providing maximum customer flexibility when developing platforms that meet varying performance requirements.

“Skyworks’ new and innovative WiFi power amplifiers complement our leadership portfolio of wireless semiconductors,” said Liam K. Griffin, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Skyworks. “These devices highlight Skyworks’ growing suite of WiFi solutions designed to address the expanding opportunities in high-performance gateways, access points, smart phones, media, and emerging mobile Internet access platforms.”

About Skyworks’ New Power Amplifiers
SKY65152-11 Block DiagramThe SKY65152-11 (20-pin, 6 x 6 mm) and the SKY65165-11 (16-pin, 3 x 3 mm) are microwave monolithic integrated circuit (MMIC) PAs with superior output power, linearity, and efficiency. These features make the PAs ideal for wireless local area network (WLAN) applications. The high linearity, low EVM and high efficiency of these devices also make them ideal for use in the transmit chain of WLAN access points and modems. The devices are fabricated using Skyworks’ high reliability heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) indium gallium phosphide (InGaP) process, which allows for single supply operation while maintaining high efficiency and good linearity. The SKY65152-11 is a fully-matched PA, incorporating a directional power coupler for accurate power detection, mounted in a multi-chip module (MCM) package, and the SKY65165-11 is internally matched at the radio frequency (RF) input, includes integrated power detector, biasing and is mounted in a quad flat no-lead (QFN) surface-mounted technology (SMT) package, which allows for a highly manufacturable low-cost solution.

Pricing and Availability
The SKY65152-11 and the SKY65165-11 are available now. The SKY65152-11 is priced at $1.58 each and the SKY65165-11 is priced at $1.15 each in quantities of 10,000 devices. Volume production is scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter of this year.
