Skyworks Solutions Inc. has acquired Axiom Microdevices, a volume supplier of CMOS-based power amplifiers for mobile phones.

"The acquisition of Axiom complements our existing GaAs capabilities, bolsters our fundamental intellectual property portfolio and augments our design expertise," said David J. Aldrich, president and CEO of Skyworks. "Today Skyworks is the leading supplier of both GaAs and silicon front-end solutions for cellular and smart phone applications. With the addition of Axiom's patent and product design portfolio, we can further our industry leadership position. At the same time, this acquisition supports our existing product road maps in adjacent linear products markets, such as low power smart grid networks and wireless meter reading, where we maintain a first-mover advantage. At a higher level, this transaction is another important step towards realizing our vision of enabling mobile connectivity in handsets and across a set of highly diverse analog markets."

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed and will have no significant impact to Skyworks' operating expenses.
