lamps available and one 50W incandescent replacement. It appears that Samsung is delaying the introduction of its other incandescent replacement lamps available in other countries.


Japan– November was the first month that a 40W incandescent replacement lamp has been priced under 1000 Yen ($13). The average price of 40W replacement lamps in Japan is still over $30.


South Korea– Of the 31 incandescent replacement lamps tracked in South Korea, 26 were mislabelled with regards to their wattage replacement. The average luminous output of LED lamps labelled as 60W replacements was 505 lumens, almost 200 lumens below the threshold used by IMS Research for a 60W replacement.


World– Of the over 480 LED lamps tracked by IMS Research in 12 countries, only 32 (7%) were for 60 and 75W replacements, with no 100W replacement lamps (using IMS Research metrics) on the market.


Phillip Smallwood, Lighting Market Analyst at IMS Research will give a presentation on “The Market for LEDs in Lighting” at CS Europe 2012.

Skyworks ramps up GPS/ GNSS manufacturing for Samsung


The new device launched by the company has an LNA which uses proprietary gallium


arsenide pHEMT technology. It enables high performance navigation functionality in smart phones and tablets


Skyworks’ SKY65702-11 is a Front-End Module (FEM) with an integrated Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) and pre-filter designed for Global Positioning System/Global Navigation Satellite System (GPS/GNSS) receiver applications.


The Company’s newest devices, which integrate an LNA with filtering specifically designed for GPS/GNSS receiver applications, are claimed to deliver industry-leading performance and be one of the smallest solutions in the market requiring no external components, allowing manufacturers an easy “plug and play” option.


“This is an exciting new product area for Skyworks, particularly as navigation is becoming one of the fastest growing consumer features for smart phones and tablets,” said Liam K. Griffin, executive vice president and general manager of high performance analogue at Skyworks. “By leveraging core capabilities, Skyworks is delivering innovative solutions that help drive better performance and reduce complexity for our customers, while at the same time capturing additional RF content in high- growth markets.”


Global adoption of smart phones continues to be robust, and is quickly being followed by a growing tablet adoption cycle. According to Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. worldwide shipments of smart phones are predicted to reach one billion by 2015, up from approximately 400 million units by the end of 2011. In addition, global tablets are expected to surpass 125 million units by 2015, up from roughly 50 million for the end of December 2011. Embedded GPS/GNSS functionality is expected to be an integral part of these devices.


The SKY65702-11 is a receive only front- end solution with an integrated low-noise amplifier and filtering designed for GPS and global navigation satellite system receiver
