Skyworks secures hi-rel designs with aerospace and defense manufacturers

Analog semiconductor maker Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA says that is has captured high-reliability (hi-rel) and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) sockets with several aerospace and defense suppliers such as Cobham, EADS, Herley and Teledyne. The firm’s products are being leveraged for microwave switching, attenuation, receiver protection and mixer and detector applications in commercial and military radios, avionics systems, software-defined radios and navigation platforms that support major tier-one aerospace and defense companies such as Boeing, L-3 Communications, Northrup Grumman and Raytheon.

“Skyworks is gaining content across a number of hi-rel applications with our diverse product portfolio,” says David Stasey, VP & general manager of analog solutions. “Our solutions are ideal for the rapidly growing aerospace and defense industry where customers are seeking effective, efficient and reliable military communication systems that deliver robust, wide-ranging and real-time data and services,” he claims.

According to a December report ‘2013 Semiconductors in Military and Aerospace Electronics’ from analyst firm Global Information, the market will grow to over $3bn worldwide in four years. In addition, the fastest adoption rate for solutions in the military/aerospace market will come from COTS platforms, which is forecast to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6% over the next five years. This long-term market trend is based on the industry’s greater focus on reliability, shorter business cycles and the ability to operate within budget constraints, it adds.

Skyworks details its analog solutions as follows:

  • Gallium arsenide (GaAs) digital attenuators, PIN diode voltage variable attenuators (VVAs) and silicon fixed attenuator pads for infrastructure, test & measurement and other high-performance microwave applications up to 40GHz leverage Skyworks’ design knowledge, technology, and manufacturing expertise.
  • Low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) meet the needs of cellular infrastructure, WLAN, WiMAX, ISM (industrial, scientific and medical), and all applications requiring LNAs from DC to 6GHz.
  • Through Isolink, Skyworks manufactures high-performance miniature hybrids and hermetically sealed devices. Isolink pioneered the miniaturization of advanced optoelectronic components, claims Skyworks, enabling it to manufacture products achieving high isolation voltages, high common mode rejection and radiation tolerance for high-demand environments.
  • Skyworks’ power management devices include highly complementary analog semiconductor products such as battery chargers, DC/DC converters, voltage regulators and LED drivers.
  • Skyworks’ diode product range includes PIN, Schottky, varactor and limiter diodes for microwave applications including WLAN, infrastructure, handset, SatCom (LNB/DBS-CATV), automotive, military, test and measurement, metering, medical and RFID.
