Skyworks Unveils High-Power, Ceramic-Based Filters
for Military and Homeland Security Markets
-- Smaller, Lighter and More Portable Solutions than
June 8, 2011—Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high reliability analog and mixed signal
semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today introduced connectorized, high power filters for
military, homeland security, airborne and high-end commercial transceiver applications. These smaller,
lighter and more portable solutions offer customers significant design benefits and flexibility when compared to
the more traditional and much larger metallic-cavity filters. In addition, Skyworks’ designs offer less
overall dimensions, resulting in significant space savings where high power filtering is a requirement.
“Skyworks’ is excited to once again be at the forefront of technology development,” said Mark Wolf, general
manager of Skyworks’ Trans-Tech division. “Our new filters exceed the power handling of traditional ceramic
designs and more than meet critical demands from the military, homeland security and commercial markets.”
The combined U.S. market for homeland security products and services – purchased by federal, state and
local governments, the intelligence community and the private sector – will increase from $69 billion in 2010 to
$84 billion in 2014, representing a compounded annual growth rate of 5.1 percent, according to the Homeland
Security Research Corporation report. State and local spending ranks first with 23.7 percent of the overall
market, while the U.S. Defense Department ranks second with 22.5 percent and the Department of Homeland Security
ranks third with 18.3 percent of total spending.
