Skyworks Powers Iotera’s Innovative GPS-enabled Tracking Devices

Modules Extend Range and Optimize Battery Life in Emerging Internet
of Things Applications

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$SWKS #GPStracking–Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high
performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things,
today announced that its front-end modules are being leveraged by
Iotera, a leader in wireless technologies for wide area Internet of
Things applications, across their family of IOTA® GPS-enabled tracking
products. Initially deployed for tracking pets, these devices are now
being utilized to protect vehicles, bicycles and other personal items.
Tracking is becoming an increasingly important opportunity as the
Internet of Things explosion proliferates and encompasses a wide range
of new and previously unimagined applications ranging from smart meters
and connected vehicles, to security systems and industrial uses.
Skyworks’ connectivity solutions extend range and maximize battery life
in these types of devices.

“Skyworks is intensely focused on enabling a broad range of applications
spanning the Internet of Things,” said John O’Neill, vice president of
broad markets for Skyworks. “We are excited to be partnering with Iotera
and part of a family of products that is breaking size and performance
barriers in this emerging market. This partnership is yet another
example of how Skyworks is leveraging its broad product portfolio and
systems expertise to create a first mover advantage for new

“Skyworks has been a vital partner as we developed our proprietary
platform for our revolutionary tracking devices,” said Ben Wild, CEO of
Iotera. “Their solutions have enabled us to build the world’s smallest,
real-time GPS tracking devices with industry leading battery life,
giving us tremendous competitive advantages.”

Long range device tracking without the need for monthly fees is quickly
growing in popularity as people become aware of these products and
services. According to an April Global Market Insights report, the
consumer global pet wearable market alone is expected to exceed $2
billion by 2023, driven in large part by the rising demand for remote
monitoring and tracking of pets. Looking more broadly, IDC is expecting
global wearable device shipments to surge from 76.1 million units in
2015 to 173.4 million by 2019, representing a 128 percent increase. In
the industrial segment, General Electric estimates connected industrial
machinery will add $10 to $15 trillion to the global GDP within the next
20 years.
