Skyworks Supports Google's Nexus One Mobile Phone
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high reliability analog and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, announced that Google Inc.’s Nexus One mobile phone is leveraging several of its highly integrated power amplifier modules. These 3G solutions were incorporated in the Google platform as part of HTC Corp.’s reference design.
Google’s newest Android-based handset is thin, light and fast – delivering speeds up to one gigahertz. Optimized features include a five megapixel camera with auto focus, flash and geo tagging, as well as onboard and expandable memory, noise suppression, and a stereo headphone jack with four contacts for inline voice and remote control.
“Skyworks is delighted to be participating in Google’s newest Android phone,” said Liam K. Griffin, Skyworks’ Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Our participation in this platform demonstrates Skyworks’ ability to work with leading handset manufacturers, smart phone providers as well as reference design partners to deliver the world’s most powerful and leading-edge wireless systems. In addition, we are pleased to broaden our support within the high growth smart phone segment. These platforms have forged the way to 3G and 4G adoption, while being endorsed by consumers as the preferred path for mobile Internet access.”

HTC is behind many of today’s most popular operator-branded devices on the market. They have established unique partnerships with the five leading operators in Europe, the top four in the Unites States, and many of Asia’s fast-growing operators.
