The company formed as a result of a merger of Alpha Industries and the wireless communications division of Conexant, which took effect on June 26, 2002.[3] Headquartered in Irvine, California, Skyworks has manufacturing facilities in Woburn, Massachusetts, Newbury Park, California and Mexicali, Mexico. It has design centers in Irvine; Santa Rosa, California; Newbury Park; Woburn; Greensboro, North Carolina; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Ottawa, Ontario.[4] According to its website, the company has design, engineering, manufacturing, marketing, sales and service facilities throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.[4]

The music video for The Postal Service's song "Such Great Heights" is set in Skyworks' Newbury Park chip fabrication plant.[5]

On October 5, 2015, Skyworks Solutions entered a definitive agreement to acquire PMC-Sierra for $2 billion in cash.[6] However, Skyworks walked away from the deal, having been outbid by Microsemi.[citation needed]. On April 22, 2021, Skyworks Solutions entered into a definitive agreement with Silicon Labs to acquire their Infrastructure & Automotive business for $2.75 billion.[7]
