BARCELONA, Spain -- February 24, 2014

Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, announced that it
has unveiled its second-generation SkyOne™ platforms. SkyOne™ is a family of
fully optimized, scalable devices that integrate all of the high-performance
RF and analog content between the transceiver and antenna into the industry’s
smallest footprint. These groundbreaking solutions also provide the world’s
best linearity and power-added efficiency for smart RF integration. The newest
front-end solutions cover more frequency bands, integrate up to seven
duplexers, support carrier aggregation and provide standardized inputs for all
leading chipsets that are MIPI® RFFE compatible.

“With the introduction of these next generation SkyOne™ platforms, Skyworks is
pushing the integration envelope and meeting demands for smartphones, tablets
and datacards requiring wider bandwidths being enabled by carrier
aggregation,” said Joel King, vice president and general manager of advanced
market solutions at Skyworks. “By utilizing our SkyOne™ solutions, mobile
device OEMs no longer have to choose between size and time-to-market. These
devices deliver best-in-class performance, are highly customizable and
scalable as well as compatible with all leading chipsets.”

Skyworks has incorporated breakthrough RF switching technology in its newest
devices that are enabling early adopters to implement carrier aggregation
solutions. Carrier aggregation allows mobile service providers to combine
spectrum and increase data rate throughput by utilizing two or more bands
simultaneously instead of the single band method used currently, thereby
giving consumers an enriched data experience regardless of location.

Skyworks’ SkyOne™ devices also support standardized inputs to industry leading
basebands (MIPI® RFFE compatible) and address both transmit (Tx) and receive
(Rx) switching paths. Skyworks’ carrier aggregation switching solutions, which
are compliant to tier-one, carrier-driven specifications, are based on
silicon-on-insulator wafer process technologies and available in many
different configurations.

About Skyworks’ SkyOne™ Front-end Solutions

SkyOne™ is an 8 x 9 x 0.95 millimeter module with up to seven duplexers and a
dual-pole, 19 throw antenna switch module (ASM) for models supporting carrier
aggregation (CA) and single pole, 16 throw ASMs for models without a CA
requirement.

  *SKY78021 is a hybrid, multimode, multiband (MMMB) front-end module (FEM)
    that supports 2.5G, 3G/4G and CDMA handsets and all standard carrier
    aggregation frequency band combinations through its integrated dual pole
    19 throw switch. This module operates efficiently in EDGE, GPRS, GSM,
    HSPA, LTE and WCDMA modes.
  *SKY78022, SKY78025 and SKY78026 are MMMB FEMs supporting 2.5G, 3G/4G, CDMA
    and TDD-LTE handsets and operate efficiently in EDGE, GPRS, GSM, HSPA,
    LTE, TDD-LTE and WCDMA modes. These modules integrate single pole, 16
    throw switches with internal IEC protection.
