Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced
that its wholly-owned subsidiary Isolink is shipping customized optical
solutions to Varian Medical for radiation oncology applications. Varian is the
world’s leading manufacturer of medical devices and software for treating
cancer and other medical conditions with radiotherapy, radiosurgery, proton

“Our design with Varian is just one example of how traditional analog end
markets like medical are embracing connectivity and intersecting directly with
Skyworks’ core competencies. These are highly attractive markets for us,
characterized by longer product life cycles, fewer competitors and higher
margins.”
