Skyworks Powers MediaTek’s Latest Generation Dual-core Smartphone Platforms

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets announced that MediaTek is leveraging several of Skyworks’ front-end solutions in their innovative, dual-core MT6572 platform which is supporting multiple leading tier-one smartphone manufacturers in emerging markets. MediaTek, a leading fabless semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia solutions, has revolutionized the manufacture of mobile phones by supplying complete chipset solutions that couples their own baseband processor, radio, software, multimedia and connectivity product offerings, with industry-leading front-end solutions to offer a turnkey approach to manufacturers who supply handsets to consumers around the world.

The MT6572 is the world’s first dual-core, system-on-a-chip platform with high-speed-packet-access, integrated WiFi, FM, GPS and Bluetooth® functionality delivered in a cost-effective, four-layer printed circuit board. This system-level design reduces bill-of-material costs, simplifies the product development cycle and enhances time to market – all key drivers in the fast moving mobile market.

“MediaTek is excited to be extending its collaboration with Skyworks Solutions,” said Jeffrey Ju, general manager of the MediaTek’s smartphone business. “Skyworks is a proven innovator and their leading-edge, best-in-class solutions make them the ideal partner as we look to deliver next-generation smartphones with features and performance associated exclusively with high-end platforms.”

“As the transition to smartphones in the emerging markets continues to accelerate, Skyworks is pleased to be working with MediaTek, a leader in system-on-chip cellular platforms,” said Bradley C. Byk, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Skyworks. “As the solutions provider of choice, Skyworks looks forward to capitalizing on the exploding smartphone growth in emerging markets.”

Industry analysts expect future smartphone growth to come from emerging markets where consumers are upgrading from feature phones to entry-level platforms. According to IDC, 1.7 billion smart connected devices (tablets, smartphones and PCs) will be shipped worldwide in 2014. Of those 1.7 billion units, 1.0 billion will be delivered to emerging markets, with smartphones and tablets comprising more than the majority of units. Specifically, IDC estimates emerging markets will see a compound annual growth rate of 17 percent from 2012 – 2017 for connected devices.
