ANADIGICS Expands Dual-Band ProEficient-Plus Power Amplifier Family

ProEficient-Plus Power Amplifiers Deliver the Industry's Highest Efficiency Across All Power Levels to Maximize Battery-Life in 3G and 4G Mobile Devices

WARREN, N.J., Feb. 27, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today expanded its dual-band ProEficient-Plus™ power amplifier (PA) family with the introduction of the AWT6765, optimized for LTE bands 25 and 26.  The Company's ProEficient-Plus solutions deliver industry-leading efficiency in low-power mode for greater talk-time and high-power mode for longer data application use.  This level of performance is offered in compact and highly integrated dual-band configurations to help maximize overall battery-life and minimize space requirements in mobile devices.

"The rapid increase in 3G and 4G mobile device use continues to place tremendous pressure on battery-life," said Jerry Miller, vice president of Cellular Products at ANADIGICS. "Our ProEficient-Plus power amplifiers are optimized to address this challenge by delivering the industry's highest combined efficiency for longer talk-time and data use. By offering this power-saving performance in compact, highly integrated dual-band packages, we are providing manufacturers with compelling solutions for ultra-thin, feature-rich mobile devices."

ANADIGICS' ProEficient-Plus solutions leverage the Company's exclusive InGaP-Plus™ technology and patented design architectures to provide world-class efficiency in low and high power modes, as well as exceptionally low quiescent currents without the use of DC/DC converter.  ProEficient-Plus power amplifiers are also optimized for use with average power tracking (APT) to further increase efficiency and reduce current consumption at medium and low operating powers.  The Company's dual-band ProEficient-Plus solutions offer frequently used band combinations with an internal voltage regulator in compact 3 mm by 4 mm packages to save valuable PCB space.

ANADIGICS Dual-Band ProEficient-Plus Family Key Facts and Highlights:

  • Industry-leading efficiency across all power levels and exceptionally low quiescent current to extend battery-life, including longer talk-time and data use
  • Two independent amplification chains to provide industry-leading performance for each band
  • Compact 3 mm x 4 mm x 0.9 mm package with internal voltage regulation and integrated DC blocks on the RF ports to reduce PCB space requirements
  • Best-in-class linearity to maintain stable, high-throughput 3G / 4G connections
  • RF matching optimized for output power, efficiency, and linearity in a 50-Ohm system
