Skyworks appoints industry veteran Christine King to board

Analog semiconductor maker Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA has appointed Christine King to its board of directors. She currently also serves on the boards of Cirrus Logic, IDACORP, Idaho Power Company and QLogic.

King was most recently CEO of Standard Microsystems (SMSC), a developer of silicon-based integrated circuits that uses analog and mixed-signal technologies, until the firm’s acquisition by Microchip Technology in 2012. Prior to that, she was CEO of AMI Semiconductor before it was acquired by ON Semiconductor. King also spent more than 23 years at IBM in various management positions, including VP of Semiconductor Solutions. She was formerly a director for Analog Devices and Atheros Communications (prior to its acquisition by Qualcomm).

“She is an accomplished industry executive whose broad semiconductor experience will be particularly relevant as Skyworks continues to grow and become a diversified analog semiconductor leader,” says David J. McLachlan, chairman of the board.

“This is an exciting time in wireless and I look forward to sharing my experience as Skyworks capitalizes on the explosive demand for connectivity,” comments King.
