    The radio frequency chip manufacturer Skyworks Solutions Inc., of Woburn, and other such companies were on the rise Wednesday after Avago Technologies Lt. far exceeded third-quarter estimates and issued strong guidance for the fourth quarter, the financial website Seeking Alpha reported. Skyworks and several of the other companies are suppliers for Apple Inc.’s iPhone. Skyworks also supplies chips to car makers and expects all cars to have built-in digital communications in the next five years.
