ANADIGICS, Inc. (ANAD) Grows Frequency Band Range Of Small-Cell Power Amplifier Family

|Includes: ANADIGICS, Inc. (ANAD)

ANADIGICS, a global radio frequency (NYSE:RF) solutions leader, introduced its AWB7224 small-cell power amplifier (PA) today. This innovative new product is designed to provide the industry's best combination of efficiency, linearity, output power, and thermal characteristics for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell base stations operating in a frequency range of 728 to 768 MHz. Manufacturers can utilize this powerful new amplifier to create infrastructure solutions that deliver higher throughput and greater coverage, while consuming less power.

"ANADIGICS continues to expand its family of small-cell power amplifiers to target the 3G and 4G frequency bands most used in dense population areas," said Glenn Eswein, director of product marketing for infrastructure products at ANADIGICS. "The rapid increase in wireless data consumption, especially in urban and campus settings, places tremendous pressure on existing wireless infrastructure. Our solutions enable the design of high throughput, reliable, and compact small-cell base stations that offer service providers an economical and pragmatic path to expand broadband network coverage."

The foundation of ANADIGICS' small-cell wireless infrastructure power amplifiers is the company's proprietary InGaP-Plus™ technology and advanced design architectures. It is this powerful combination that allows the AWB7224 to deliver world-class performance and integration while offering 13% efficiency to minimize power requirements and provide flexibility in selecting network power systems.

The AWB7224 enables high throughput data rates with a very broad coverage area with extraordinary linearity of -47 dBc ACPR at +27 dBm output power, and 29 dB of RF gain. The entire suite of small-cell power amplifiers is available in a compact, low profile 7 mm x 7 mm x 1.3 mm surface mount package featuring integrated RF matching to shrink PCB space requirements.
