High Performance Products Meet Demanding Requirements for Next
Generation Mobile Applications

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high
performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things,
today unveiled the latest solutions from its Sky5 portfolio,
the company's unifying platform enabling 5G applications. Skyworks' new
wideband 16-state antenna aperture tuners are extremely compact and
designed to deliver improved efficiency and enhanced bandwidth coverage
─ from 600 MHz to 6 GHz for LTE Advanced Pro to emerging 5G standards ─
across a wide range of mobile devices.

Antenna tuning plays a critical role in maintaining smartphone power
efficiency and battery life, particularly as signal processing
complexity continues to rise with the onset of 5G. With smartphone
manufacturers adding new features such as 4x4 multiple-in, multiple-out
(MIMO) and 5G new radio (NR) for 2019 applications, next generation
architectures must embed significantly more antennas. New bezel-less
smartphones integrate anywhere from four to seven antennas to support
future data demand versus the two to four average antenna count within
today's platforms. At the same time, the migration to full screen
infinity displays and expanded functionality limit the amount of board
space available. Skyworks' innovative antenna tuning solutions leverage
proprietary design and process techniques to help drive antenna
performance while meeting stringent linearity demands and size
constraints.

"Skyworks is at the forefront of developing breakthrough solutions for
revolutionary 5G applications," said Carlos Bori, senior vice president
of sales and marketing for Skyworks. "With best-in-class performance,
our antenna tuners are playing a pivotal role in enabling 4x4
MIMO-capable mobile devices as global demand for emerging 5G
applications is set to explode."

About Skyworks' New Antenna Solutions
The SKY5−9256-701LF
advanced aperture tuner features reliable linear operation and extremely
low Ron (1.1ohm) and Coff (145fF) to deliver superior antenna
performance, allowing system designers to recover the 1.5 to 3 dB gain
degradation caused by shrinking antenna sizes. The MIPI®-controlled,
16-state capability of the tuner also gives engineers the ability to
combine arms for even smaller Ron and Coff. Excellent harmonics are
delivered throughout the operating range, assisting customers with
achieving RSE requirements and passing certification.
