ANADIGICS ProVantage power amplifiers leverage the Company's patented InGaP-Plus™ technology to achieve outstanding performance and integration. These power amplifiers help extend battery life by offering two selectable bias modes that optimize efficiency for low and high output power levels, as well as a shutdown mode with low leakage current. The AWT6530 quad-band power amplifier delivers 40% power-added efficiency (PAE) operating in UMTS bands 1, 5, and 8 and 42% PAE in band 2. ProVantage solutions are also designed for use with an external switch mode power supply (SMPS) to support average power tracking (APT), which further increases efficiency and reduces current consumption at low and medium operating powers. The Company's ProVantage power amplifiers also provide world-class linearity to ensure stable cellular connectivity and high data throughput.
