SEATTLE -- June 5, 2013

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced
that an increasing number of its products are enabling telematics and
infotainment systems in the automotive market. Telematics is the term used to
describe the integrated use of computers and electronic technology in
automobiles for wireless communication applications such as cell phones, the
Internet and GPS receivers.

Skyworks’ industry-leading SOI switching technology is already being utilized
by global car manufacturers for seamless low noise and broadband handoffs
between audio, Blu-ray/DVD, navigation, cell phone and vehicle security
display inputs. Skyworks has now secured multiple RF and analog design wins
with Novero, a key worldwide automotive supplier. Skyworks’ devices are
enabling Novero’s on-board communication systems being deployed by several car
manufacturers including a large, tier-one German company.

“Skyworks is excited to be capitalizing on the increasing number of
addressable semiconductor opportunities in the telematics and infotainment
segments of the automotive market,” said John O’Neill, vice president of broad
markets marketing at Skyworks. “Our high performance, turn-key solutions are
ideal for in-vehicle applications, particularly as mobile phone integration,
navigation and data access become mainstream.”

Telematics and monitoring services in automobiles are rapidly growing segments
as safety and security concerns become more prevalent. According to Lucintel,
a consulting and market research firm, the global automotive semiconductor
market is expected to reach revenues of approximately $36 billion by 2018.
Growth is being driven by innovations in hybrid vehicles as well as advanced
safety features in infotainment systems as car manufacturers seek to enhance
the overall driving experience by incorporating reliable, interactive
controls.

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
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
