Skyworks Expands Filter Operations in Japan
Analog semiconductor producer Skyworks Solutions, Inc. recently announced that it is expanding production capacity in Japan to meet the growing demand for its filter technology. A two-story, 405,000-sq-ft facility in Osaka will house the design, development, and manufacture of filter devices to complement the company’s front-end solutions, as well as its assembly, test, and packaging capabilities. With the additional capacity, Skyworks is reportedly well-positioned to offer differentiated architectures for the most demanding customer applications where high-performance filter technology is required, addressing the stringent technical challenges associated with tighter band spacing and coexistence across low-, mid- and high-band LTE frequencies. The facility will be fully operational by September.
“Skyworks’ investment in filter capacity reflects our commitment to delivering the world’s most highly integrated, cost-efficient and shortest cycle time front-end solutions,” said David J. Aldrich, chairman and CEO. “Given the increasing importance of filters to our target markets and customers, we are expanding our internal capability to meet current and future demand in a world-class environment. At a higher level, our enhanced capability aligns with our unique business model of combining above market top-line growth with the best-in-class financial returns of a diversified analog semiconductor company.”
