Skyworks Solutions, Inc. is an American semiconductor company headquartered in Irvine, California, United States, and a constituent of the S&P 500.

In 2009, Skyworks Solutions Inc. took over Axiom Microdevices Inc., a company that provides CMOS-based mobile phone power amplifiers, for an undisclosed amount.[2] On October 5, 2015, Skyworks Solutions entered a definitive agreement to acquire PMC-Sierra for $2 billion in cash. However, Skyworks walked away from the deal, having been outbid by Microsemi.[3] In 2018, Skyworks purchased Avnera for US$405 million.[4] On April 22, 2021, Skyworks Solutions entered into a definitive agreement with Silicon Labs to acquire their Infrastructure & Automotive business for $2.75 billion.[5][6] Mobile products comprised about 60% of total revenue, while Broad Markets products comprised 40% of total revenue from non-mobile markets like automotive, infrastructure and industrial.[4]


Skyworks products, such as low-noise and power amplifiers, connectivity switches or radio co-processors, can be used in the automotive, streaming or broadcast industry.[7][8] Other products include DRM platforms for cars,[9] RF switches [10] as well as power management chips.[11] A GSM power amplifier and a RF switch from Skyworks were used in the iPhone 15.[12]
