Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced
that a tier-one automotive supplier is leveraging several of its solutions in
their vehicle-based wireless platforms ramping across several leading car
manufacturers. The control system enables drivers to remotely activate garage
door openers, entry door locks, home lighting, security systems and entry
gates. Currently offered in all automotive brands, the platform is compatible
with more than 99 percent of garage door opening systems as well as a wide
variety of home safety and convenience products. The three-button interface is
