Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced that HTC and Samsung are ramping SkyOne™, a highly customizable, fully optimized front-end solution, in several of their recent smartphone launches. The SkyOne™ platform, which integrates all RF and analog content between the transceiver and antenna, reduces complexity, size and time-to-market for customers with demanding architectures for advanced mobile applications. Utilizing Skyworks’ full technology portfolio and advanced multichip module capabilities including proprietary shielding and packaging, SkyOne™ is the world’s first semiconductor device to condense multiband power amplifiers and high throw switches along with all associated filtering, duplexing and control functionality into a single, ultra-compact package – all in less than half the area of the industry’s most advanced approach. At the same time, this groundbreaking solution provides the world’s best linearity and power added efficiency for smart RF integration. “Skyworks is pleased that HTC, Samsung and other mobile device manufacturers are leveraging the benefits offered by our family of SkyOne™ solutions,” said Brad Byk, senior vice president, worldwide sales at Skyworks. “SkyOne™ offers smartphone, tablet and ultrabook OEMs improved size, flexibility, and time to market - - - all in an easy to implement and scalable platform that addresses the dramatic increase in bands worldwide.” About HTC’s Desire 601 HTC’s Desire 601 offers consumers 4G LTE speeds for extremely fast music and video streaming with HD clarity. It leverages HTC’s BoomSound™ with dual frontal stereo speakers for more immersive volume and richer audio, and BlinkFeed™, a feature that automatically refreshes the home screen every time you turn it on. The advanced camera in the Desire 601 features a photo clustering function that unstills pictures for moving images. About Samsung’s Galaxy Express 2 The Galaxy Express 2 is powered by Android 4.2, with a 1.7 GHz dual core processor and 4.5 inch display. The new handset features a number of Samsung’s smart functions such as Smart Stay – using advanced facial recognition to detect when the phone is in use, and Group Play – allowing users to share music, documents and photos with compatible Samsung devices. In addition, the device features S Travel, Story Album and S Translator.
