Skyworks Solutions Inc. an innovator of high performance analog semiconductor enabling a broad range of end markets, announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Isolink is shipping customized optical solutions to Varian Medical for radiation oncology applications. Varian is the world’s leading manufacturer of medical devices and software for treating cancer and other medical conditions with radiotherapy, radiosurgery, proton therapy and brachytherapy. Isolink’s emitter and detector arrays are radiation tolerant and help to ensure that the correct treatment doses are delivered to patients.
“Skyworks is excited to be expanding our portfolio of analog solutions for a wide range of medical applications including radiation oncology, hearing aids, glucose monitors, heart defibrillators and patient telemetry,” said Liam K. Griffin, executive vice president and corporate general manager at Skyworks. “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. These are highly attractive markets for us, characterized by longer product life cycles, fewer competitors and higher margins.”
