Skyworks Secures Hi-Rel Designs with Multiple
Aerospace and Defense Manufacturers
Solutions Enabling Custom Platforms for Microwave Communications,
Radios and Navigation Applications
WOBURN, Mass., Jan. 27, 2014 – Skyworks
Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS) an innovator of high performance analog
semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced that is has
captured high-reliability (hi-rel) and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) sockets with
several aerospace and defense suppliers such as Cobham, EADS, Herley and Teledyne.
Skyworks' solutions are being leveraged for microwave switching, attenuation,
receiver protection and mixer and detector applications in commercial and military
radios, avionics systems, software defined radios and navigation platforms that
support major tier-one aerospace and defense companies such as Boeing, L-3
Communications, Northrup Grumman and Raytheon.
"Skyworks is gaining content across a number of hi-rel applications with our diverse
product portfolio," said David Stasey, vice president and general manager of analog
solutions at Skyworks. "Our solutions are ideal for the rapidly growing
aerospace and defense industry where customers are seeking effective, efficient and
reliable military communication systems that deliver robust, wide-ranging and
real-time data and services."
According to a December Global Information report
entitled "2013 Semiconductors in Military and Aerospace Electronics" the market will
grow to over $3.0 billion worldwide in four years. In addition, the fastest adoption
rate for solutions in the military/aerospace market will come from COTS platforms,
which is forecast to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 6 percent over the
next five years. This long-term market trend is based on the industry's
greater focus on reliability, shorter business cycles and the ability to operate
within budget constraints.
