WOBURN, Mass., June 12, 2013 – Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced that it is partnering with SMC Networks, a leading customer premise equipment manufacturer for multi-service operators (MSOs), to develop wireless connectivity solutions for security, monitoring and automation (SMA) applications in the emerging connected home market.  SMC is utilizing Skyworks’ wireless networking and ZigBee® front-end solutions for security sensors, smoke alarms, motion detectors and touch pads.

“SMC is joining forces with Skyworks to deliver innovative solutions for the connected home,” said Max Brogi, vice president of product management at SMC Networks.  “With MSOs in the United States and Canada making full-scale deployments this year, SMC sought to collaborate with the industry leader in analog solutions to deliver best-in-class, energy efficient products.  Together with Skyworks’ front-end modules, SMC is creating platforms that integrate effortlessly with existing security systems and devices, operate and back up wirelessly, are easy to install, and give MSOs a great opportunity to present revenue-generating services to their customers.”

“Skyworks is pleased to be partnering with SMC, an industry leader in customer premise equipment for both residential and commercial applications,” said Liam K. Griffin, executive vice president and corporate general manager at Skyworks.  “As more and more devices within the home become connected, we look forward to a long and successful partnership with SMC to supply a wide range of wireless solutions and next-generation technologies addressing this enormous market opportunity.”
 
As cited in GSMA’s Vision of Smart Home: The Role of Mobile in the Home of the Future report, the combined revenue from the smart metering, home automation and home energy management segment is forecasted to generate more than $44 billion in 2016, according to market analyst companies ABI and Berg Insight.  The overall revenue potential of the smart home is expected to be even higher as devices from the entertainment, health and home security sectors also become connected.
 
About Skyworks’ Front-end Solutions
·  SE2432L is a 2.4 gigahertz (GHz), high performance, fully integrated RF front-end module (FEM) designed for ZigBee® and smart-energy applications.  Designed for ease-of-use and maximum flexibility, the FEM contains integrated, fully matched input baluns, integrated inter-stage matching and harmonic filter, and digital controls compatible with 1.6 – 3.6 volt (V) CMOS levels.  The RF blocks operate over a wide supply voltage range from 2.0 to 3.6 V, allowing the device to be used in battery-powered applications over a wide spectrum of the battery-discharge curve.

·  SE5003L  is a 5 GHz power amplifier (PA) offering high linear power for wireless local area network (WLAN) applications.  Incorporating a power detector for closed-loop monitoring and control of the output power, the PA contains high integration for a simplified design, providing quicker time-to-market and higher application board production yield.  The PA also integrates the input, inter-stage and output match and power detector with 15 dB of dynamic range and a 3.8 GHz notch filter.  Only six external decoupling capacitors are required to complete the design.  For WLAN applications, the device meets the requirements of IEEE 802.11a/n, and delivers approximately 23 dBm of linear power at 5 V.  In addition, the PA integrates the reference voltage generator.
