The Company is engaged with key original equipment manufacturers (OEM), smartphone providers and baseband reference design partners. The Company's plants are located in Mexico, Singapore, the United States, Japan, and Rest of world. The Company offers its technology from the smartphones to the factory floor to hospitals and medical providers to the automated home, connected car, and wearables. Skyworks is enabling opportunities with solutions supporting a set of wireless protocols, including cellular long-term evolution (LTE), wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi), Bluetooth, Zigbee and emerging fifth generation (5G) standards.
The Company's product portfolio consists of various solutions, including amplifiers, attenuators, circulators/isolators, direct current (DC/DC) converters, demodulators, detectors, diodes, directional couplers, diversity receive modules, filters, front-end modules, hybrid, light emitting diode (LED) drivers, low noise amplifiers, mixers, modulators, optocouplers/optoisolators, phase locked loops, phase shifters, power dividers/combiners, receivers, switches, synthesizers, technical ceramics, voltage regulators and voltage controlled oscillators/synthesizers. Its Attenuators portfolio includes circuits that allow a known source of power to be reduced by a predetermined factor (usually expressed as decibels). Its Circulators/Isolators portfolio includes ferrite-based components found on the output of high-power amplifiers used to protect receivers in wireless transmission systems. Its DC/DC Converters portfolio includes an electronic circuit, which converts a source of direct current from one voltage level to another.
The Company's Demodulators portfolio includes a device or a radio frequency (RF) block used in receivers to extract the information that has been modulated onto a carrier or from the carrier itself. The Company's Detectors portfolio includes devices used to measure and control RF power in wireless systems. Its Diode portfolio includes semiconductor devices that pass current in one direction only. Its Directional Couplers portfolio includes transmission coupling devices for separately sampling the forward or backward wave in a transmission line. Its Diversity Receive Modules portfolio includes devices used to manage receiver sensitivity in high data rate long-term evolution (LTE) applications. Its Filters portfolio includes devices for recovering and separating mixed and modulated data in RF stages. Its Front-End Modules portfolio includes power amplifiers that are integrated with switches, duplexers, filters and other components to create a single package front-end solution. Its Hybrid portfolio includes a type of directional coupler used in radio and telecommunications.
The Company's LED Drivers portfolio includes devices, which regulate the current through a light emitting diode or string of diodes for creating light. The Company's Low Noise Amplifiers portfolio includes devices used to reduce system noise figure in the receive chain. Its Mixers portfolio includes devices that enable signals to be converted to a higher or lower frequency signal and allowing the signals to be processed. Its Modulators portfolio includes devices that take a baseband input signal and output a radio frequency modulated signal. Its Optocouplers/Optoisolators portfolio includes semiconductor devices that allow signals to be transferred between circuits or systems while ensuring that the circuits or systems are electrically isolated from each other. Its Phase Locked Loops portfolio includes closed-loop feedback control system that maintains a generated signal in a fixed phase relationship to a reference signal. Its Phase Shifters portfolio is designed for use in power amplifier distortion compensation circuits in base station applications.
The Company's Power Dividers/Combiners portfolio is utilized to split signals into in-phase signals as often found in balanced signal chains and local oscillator distribution networks. The Company's Receivers portfolio includes electronic devices that change a radio signal from a transmitter into useful information. Its Switches portfolio includes components that perform the change between the transmit and receive function, as well as the band function for cellular handsets. Its Technical Ceramics portfolio includes polycrystalline oxide materials used for various electrical, mechanical, thermal and magnetic applications. Its Voltage Regulators portfolio generates a fixed level, which remains constant over varying input voltage or load conditions. Its Voltage Controlled Oscillators/Synthesizers portfolio is integrated, signal source for high dynamic range transceivers.
The Company competes with Analog Devices, Broadcom, Maxim Integrated Products, Murata Manufacturing, NXP Semiconductors, QUALCOMM and Qorvo.
