Skyworks supports ZTE with multiple front-end products

One of the devices that ZTE will incorporate in its products is the EDGE RF subsystem, which employs the firm’s indium gallium phosphide HBT technology.

Skyworks Solutions, an innovator of high reliability analogue and mixed signal semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, has announced it is supporting ZTE's ramp of next generation tablets and laptops with EDGE and WCDMA/LTE front-end solutions.

Skyworks' innovative modules are powering data cards and USB modems to help deliver greater mobility for tablet users that are equipped with cellular connectivity.

With these wins, Skyworks is broadening its relationship with ZTE, one of the world's fastest growing handset OEMs. ZTE already leverages several of Skyworks' TD-SCDMA and CDMA solutions for handsets and will soon utilise Skyworks' antenna switch modules in several forthcoming smart phone platforms.

According to both IDC and Strategy Analytics, independent market research firms, ZTE was ranked as the fifth largest global handset maker in the second quarter of 2011, growing both its unit shipments and market share.

"Skyworks is delighted to be expanding its partnership with ZTE, particularly as they are well positioned to capture a disproportionate share of the smart phone segment in emerging markets such as China, India and Latin America," said Bradley C. Byk, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Skyworks. "These markets are predicted to deliver the greatest number of wireless customers in the coming years. Skyworks is pleased to be playing a key role in this upgrade cycle that will enable greater mobility and wireless connectivity for consumers around the world."
