FREMONT, CA: Skyworks Solutions, a provider of high performance analog semiconductors, announced via Business Wire that it has captured high-reliability (hi-rel) and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) sockets with several aerospace and defense suppliers such as Cobham, EADS, Herley and Teledyne.
The company’s solutions are being used widely for microwave switching, attenuation, receiver protection and detector applications in commercial and military radios. Its offerings are also being leveraged for avionics systems, software defined radios and navigation platforms for major tier-one aerospace and defense companies including Boeing, L-3 Communications, Northrup Grumman and Raytheon.
“Skyworks is gaining content across a number of hi-rel applications with our diverse product portfolio,” says David Stasey, Vice President and general manager of analog solutions at Skyworks. He added “Our solutions are ideal for the rapidly growing aerospace and defense industry where customers are seeking effective, efficient and reliable military communication systems that deliver robust, wide-ranging and real-time data and services.”
According to a December Global Information report entitled ‘2013 Semiconductors in Military and Aerospace Electronics’, the market will rise to over $3 billion worldwide in four years. In addition, the fastest adoption rate for solutions in the military and aerospace market will come from COTS platforms, which is predicted to have a compounded annual growth rate of 6 percent over the next five years. This long-term market trend is based on the industry’s greater focus on reliability, shorter business cycles and the ability to operate within budget constraints.
