BARCELONA, Spain -- February 25, 2013

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of endmarkets, today announced
that several leading OEMs and smartphone providers are leveraging the
company’s highly customizable, fully optimized SkyOne™ front-end solution. The
SkyOne™ platform, which integrates all RF and analog content between the
transceiver and antenna, reduces complexity, size and time-to-market for
customers with demanding architectures for advanced mobile applications.

Utilizing Skyworks’ full technology portfolio and advanced multichip module
capabilities including proprietary shielding and packaging, SkyOne™ is the
world’s first semiconductor device to condense multiband power amplifiers and
high throw switches along with all associated filtering, duplexing and control
functionality into a single, ultra-compact package--all in less than half the
area of the industry’s most advanced approach. At the same time, this
groundbreaking solution provides the world’s best linearity and power added
efficiency for smart RF integration. As a result, SkyOne™ offers smartphone,
tablet and ultrabook OEMs improved efficiency, drastically reduced RF paths,
ease of implementation and a scalable platform as bands increasingly
proliferate worldwide.

“Consumer demand for increasingly thinner mobile platforms with increased talk
and data access time is creating unprecedented analog and RF complexity as
well as harmonic coexistence issues. Skyworks is delighted to solve this
system challenge with our breakthrough SkyOne™ platform,” said Liam K.
Griffin, executive vice president and corporate general manager at Skyworks.
“SkyOne™ is a proven architecture that optimizes performance beyond what is
possible with existing approaches and incorporates all 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE
protocols enabling seamless global roaming and extended battery life.
Incorporating Skyworks’ arsenal of tested and patented technologies and
leveraging GaAs, SOI, SiGe and CMOS processes, SkyOne™ can be modulated and
customized depending upon the system requirements and roadmaps of each OEM.”

About the SkyOne™ Platform

SkyOne™ solutions incorporate the field proven SKY77619, Skyworks’ high
efficiency, multimode power amplifier module already in volume production with
multiple customers. Further, the highly flexible solution contains a common
footprint that can be implemented by all of the world’s carriers and in
various regions. Skyworks will be sampling third generation solutions next
month and is already developing fifth generation architectures with multiple

Specific SkyOne™ Devices

Sampling now, these second generation, hybrid, multimode, multiband, patented
front-end modules with low insertion loss support 2.5/3G/4G handsets and
operate efficiently in quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA, HSPA and LTE modes.
The ultra compact, 7 x 9.8 x 1.05 millimeter packaged FEMs consist of a
GSM800/EGSM900 power amplifier block (PA), a DCS1800/PCS1900 PA block,
separate WCDMA blocks operating in the low and high bands, logic control block
for multiple power control levels as well as band-enable functions in cellular
and universal mobile telecommunications system. Radio frequency I/O ports are
internally matched to minimize external components while extremely low leakage
current maximizes handset standby time. The InGaP/GaAs die and passive
components are mounted on a multi-layer laminate substrate and the assembly
encapsulated in plastic overmold.

These risks, uncertainties and other important factors include, but are not
limited to: uncertainty regarding global economic and financial market
conditions; the susceptibility of the semiconductor industry and the markets
addressed by our, and our customers', products to economic downturns; the
timing, rescheduling or cancellation of significant customer orders and our
ability, as well as the ability of our customers, to manage inventory; losses
or curtailments of purchases or payments from key customers, or the timing of
customer inventory adjustments; the availability and pricing of third party
semiconductor foundry, assembly and test capacity, raw materials and supplier
components; changes in laws, regulations and/or policies, including the
possibility of expiring tax cuts combined with mandatory reductions in federal
spending, in the United States that could adversely affect either (i) the
economy and our customers’ demand for our products or (ii) the financial
markets and our ability to raise capital; our ability to develop, manufacture
and market innovative products in a highly price competitive and rapidly
changing technological environment; economic, social and political conditions
