Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high reliability analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, announced that Samsung is leveraging both quad-band GSM/EDGE and next-generation WCDMA front-end solutions to power a variety of new 3G smart phones including the Pixon12, a 12 megapixel touchscreen camera phone.
Skyworks has also secured EDGE and WCDMA power amplifier design wins for more than 15 additional Samsung smart phones currently in production. These new models include the GT-I8000 Omnia2 featuring a vast AMOLED touchscreen; the GT-S8000, Samsung’s first Android phone; the GT-M6710, or new Beat Disc Edition handset; the GT-M7600 Beat DJ, which is the world’s only mobile phone with music playback software; and the affordable GT-S5600 touchscreen phone.
“Skyworks is pleased to be further expanding its relationship with Samsung, particularly as they develop innovative platforms to support growing consumer demand for high-end smart phones with touchscreen and camera capability,” said Liam K. Griffin, Skyworks’ Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The Samsung design wins, among others, not only demonstrate Skyworks’ ability to capitalize on the three-fold increase in content in today’s multimode phones, but also highlights Skyworks’ ability to deliver high performance, cost-effective solutions to the industry’s top-tier handset OEMs.”
