 Skyworks Receives Certification for Key Automotive Standard

Enables Company to Supply Innovative Solutions to the Automotive Industry As Well as Other Market Segments
Click to visit the Skyworks websiteWoburn, Mass. – Aug. 13, 2007 – Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling mobile connectivity, today announced that it has received ISO/TS 16949 certification, an internationally accepted automotive quality system accreditation. The ISO/TS 16949 recognition allows Skyworks to become a supplier in the automotive market estimated by Lehman Brothers to have a total available market of approximately $16 billion. The automotive sector offers a range of new growth opportunities for semiconductor companies as cars utilize wireless technology for keyless entry, Bluetooth capability, global positioning system (GPS), satellite radios, climate control, sensors and other applications. Given that ISO/TS 16949 is a key differentiating standard amongst customers across a wide range of industries, achieving this certification also creates opportunities in markets such as broadband, consumer electronics, meter reading, and RFID. “Skyworks is proud to have completed this rigorous audit process involving many facets including design, manufacturing, design validation, final test, packing and shipping,” said Nien-Tsu Shen, vice president of quality at Skyworks. “The stringent certification now positions us well with multiple German, Italian, American and French automotive customers and gives us the opportunity to significantly expand our Linear Products business.” According to a research report published by Lehman Brothers in June 2007 entitled the Semiconductor Handbook, “Automotive represents a core end-market for analog and mixed signal semiconductor companies and suppliers of discrete semiconductor components, among others.” Skyworks launched its Linear Products business to aggressively leverage the company’s core RF and analog product portfolio and modeling capabilities, along with its strong catalog sales channels and specialized rep and distributor networks, in non-handset applications. Thus far, Skyworks has secured several strategic design wins in the infrastructure, broadband, medical and industrial markets.

Skyworks Facilities Accredited Under ISO/TS16949
  • Woburn, Mass.: Used for the production of 4 inch GaAs pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (PHEMT), metal semiconductor field effect transistor (MESFET), and silicon wafer fabrication for switches, control devices and amplifiers, and discrete radio frequency (RF) diodes
  • Mexicali, Mexico: Used for final test, tape and reel for a wide portfolio of semiconductor solutions including modules, RF-chip scale and fine pitch ball grid array (FPBGA) packages, as well as RF, analog and systems test
  • Failure analysis (FA)/reliability lab in Newbury Park, Calif.
About ISO/TS 16949

ISO/TS 16949 certification, developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) in conjunction with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) the world’s largest developer of standards, aligns existing automotive quality systems standards within the global automotive industry, and aims to eliminate the need for multiple certifications to satisfy customer requirements. The IATF consists of an international group of vehicle manufacturers including BMW Group, DaimlerChrysler, Fiat, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Corporation, PSA Peugeot-Citroen, Renault and Volkswagen. Together with ISO 9001: 2000, the automotive certification specifies the quality system requirements for the design/development, production, installation and servicing of automotive-related products. In addition, there are customer-specific requirements by individual subscribing vehicle manufacturers.

Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
