ANADIGICS Introduces New Small-Cell Wireless Infrastructure Power Amplifier

ANADIGICS' New Wireless Infrastructure Power Amplifier Provides Industry-Leading Combination of Efficiency, Linearity, and Thermal Performance for WCDMA / LTE Equipment Operating in Band 8

WARREN, N.J., Nov. 27, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced the AWB7129 small-cell power amplifier (PA).  The AWB7129 is optimized for Band 8 WCDMA and LTE applications, including picocells, enterprise-class femtocells, and high performance customer premises equipment (CPE). 

ANADIGICS' small-cell wireless infrastructure power amplifiers leverage the Company's patented InGaP-Plus™ technology and unique design architectures to deliver best-in-class efficiency, linearity and thermal characteristics.  This level of performance enables manufacturers to develop infrastructure solutions that consume less power, provide higher throughput and greater coverage, and are more thermally efficient.

"Mobile data use is rapidly rising as users transition from feature phones to smartphones, and attachment rates of 3G / 4G functionality to tablets, notebooks, and gaming devices increase," said Glenn Eswein, director of product marketing for infrastructure products at ANADIGICS. "Cost effective, high performance small-cell base stations, such as picocells and femtocells, are designed to help carriers meet this growing demand for wireless data, especially in dense geographic locations and campus environments.  ANADIGICS' small-cell power amplifiers are optimized for these applications by enabling manufacturers to develop wireless infrastructure solutions with exceptional throughput and range to deliver a world-class user experience."

ANADIGICS' AWB7129 small-cell power amplifier is optimized for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell base stations operating in the 925 MHz to 960 MHz frequency band.  The power amplifier delivers 15% efficiency to minimize power requirements.  With exceptional linearity of -47 dBc ACPR @ +/- 10 MHz offset, +24.5 dBm linear output power, and 30 dB gain, the AWB7129 is optimized to provide high throughput data rates with a wide coverage area.  The AWB7129 small-cell PA is provided in a compact, low profile 7 mm x 7 mm x 1.3 mm surface mount package with integrated RF matching to reduce PCB space requirements.
