Skyworks expands filter operations in Japan
Skyworks Solutions, Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, announced that it is expanding production capacity in Japan to meet the growing demand for its filter technology. Skyworks is facilitizing a two-story, 405,000 square foot facility in Osaka that will house the design, development and manufacture of filter devices to complement its industry leading front-end solutions and world-class assembly, test and packaging capabilities. With the additional capacity, Skyworks is well positioned to offer differentiated architectures for the most demanding customer applications where high performance filter technology is required - addressing the stringent technical challenges associated with tighter band spacing and coexistence across low, mid and high band LTE frequencies. The facility will be fully operational by September.
"Skyworks' investment in filter capacity reflects our commitment to delivering the world's most highly integrated, cost efficient and shortest cycle time front-end solutions," said David J. Aldrich, chairman and chief executive officer for Skyworks Solutions. "Given the increasing importance of filters to our target markets and customers, we are expanding our internal capability to meet current and future demand in a world-class environment. At a higher level, our enhanced capability aligns with our unique business model of combining above market top-line growth with the best-in-class financial returns of a diversified analog semiconductor company."
