 Captures Silicon-on-Insulator Analog IC Design Wins with Leading Provider of
            Revolutionary Touch-Sensitive Automotive Applications

Business Wire

WOBURN, Mass. -- March 5, 2013

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, announced that
its industry-leading Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) switching technology is now
being utilized by European, Japanese, Korean and North American car
manufacturers for advanced infotainment systems. Specifically, Skyworks’ solid
state technology is enabling seamless low noise and broadband switching
between audio, Blu-ray/DVD, navigation, cell phone and vehicle security
display inputs as well as a variety of other high bandwidth media sources in
automobiles. Skyworks’ ultra-broadband RF switches, the first targeted for
AEC-Q100 automotive qualification, offer increased reliability at a lower cost
structure than more problematic electromechanical switches.

“Skyworks is once again demonstrating its commitment to leverage our analog
semiconductor technology across broad market applications,” said David Stasey,
general manager of analog solutions at Skyworks. “We are delighted to be
supporting the automotive industry with high performance wireless
semiconductor technology that is enhancing safety and the overall driving
experience.”

RF semiconductor integration is one of the fastest growing trends in
automotive-interior electronics. Globally, automotive semiconductor revenues
are estimated at over $25 billion, according to IHS iSuppli. Automotive and
transportation user interface solutions are being driven to the next level by
superior interior and exterior human-to-machine interfaces. Using innovative
technologies such as high speed solid state switching, automotive companies
are enhancing the driving experience with reliable, interactive controls that
combine style, performance, reliability and innovative technology.

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 priced competitive and rapidly
changing technological environment; economic, social and political conditions
in the countries in which we, our customers or our suppliers operate,
including security and health risks, possible disruptions in transportation
networks and fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; fluctuations in
our manufacturing yields due to our complex and specialized manufacturing
processes; delays or disruptions in production due to equipment maintenance,
repairs and/or upgrades; our reliance on several key customers for a large
percentage of our sales; fluctuations in the manufacturing yields of our third
party semiconductor foundries and other problems or delays in the fabrication,
assembly, testing or delivery of our products; our ability to timely and
accurately predict market requirements and evolving industry standards, and to
identify opportunities in new markets; uncertainties of litigation, including
potential disputes over intellectual property infringement and rights, as well
as payments related to the licensing and/or sale of such rights; our ability
to rapidly develop new products and avoid product obsolescence; our ability to
retain, recruit and hire key executives, technical personnel and other
employees in the positions and numbers, with the experience and capabilities,
and at the compensation levels needed to implement our business and product
plans; lengthy product development cycles that impact the timing of new
product introductions; unfavorable changes in product mix; the quality of our
products and any remediation costs; shorter than expected product life cycles;
problems or delays that we may face in shifting our products to smaller
geometry process technologies and in achieving higher levels of design
integration; and our ability to continue to grow and maintain an intellectual
property portfolio and obtain needed licenses from third parties, as well as
other risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, those detailed
from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
