Skyworks launches optical solutions for Varian Medical

Analog semiconductor maker Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA says that its subsidiary Isolink in Milpitas, CA is shipping customized optical solutions to Varian Medical Systems Inc of Palo Alto, CA for radiation oncology applications.

Varian Medical Systems is said to be the leading manufacturer of medical devices and software for treating cancer and other medical conditions with radiotherapy, radiosurgery, proton therapy and brachytherapy.

Isolink supplies optoelectronic radiation-tolerant components serving the high-reliability, military, aerospace, hybrid, industrial, medical, and telecoms markets. It specializes in manufacturing miniature hybrids and hermetically sealed devices with high isolation voltage, common mode rejection and radiation tolerances for demanding environments. For medical applications, Isolink’s emitter and detector arrays help to ensure that the correct treatment doses are delivered to patients.

Skyworks is expanding its portfolio of analog solutions for a wide range of medical applications, including radiation oncology, hearing aids, glucose monitors, heart defibrillators and patient telemetry, says Liam K. Griffin, executive VP & corporate general manager. “Our design with Varian is just one example of how traditional analog end-markets like medical are embracing connectivity and intersecting directly with Skyworks’ core competencies,” he adds. “These are highly attractive markets for us, characterized by longer product life cycles, fewer competitors and higher margins.”
