"Adoption of the 802.11ac standard continues to accelerate as consumers and businesses increasingly turn to WiFi networks for data and multimedia connectivity," said Jerry Miller, senior vice president of Worldwide Sales and Applications at ANADIGICS. "As manufacturers develop the newest generation of WiFi infrastructure devices to support this trend, ANADIGICS' power amplifiers stand out as critical enablers. Our 802.11ac solutions deliver a world-class combination of linearity, efficiency and gain to enable infrastructure devices with higher data throughput at greater range, all while consuming less power. These advantages are being validated by production shipments in support of multiple platforms at this top-tier WiFi equipment manufacturer."
ANADIGICS' 802.11ac WiFi power amplifiers for infrastructure applications leverage the Company's patented InGaP-Plus™ technology and unique design architectures to offer world-class performance and integration. The AWL5905 power amplifier delivers 30 dB of linear power gain and 2.0% EVM at 19.5 dBm, while the AWL5910 power amplifier provides 31 dB of linear power gain and 1.8% EVM at 22 dBm output power. This industry-leading combination of gain and linearity ensures stable, reliable high-throughput WiFi connectivity in the toughest modulation formats. The Company's 802.11ac WiFi power amplifiers integrate a digital PA enable interface that eliminates the need for costly external circuitry. The AWL5905 and AWL5910 power amplifiers also feature an integrated detector that facilitates accurate power control over varying load conditions. These performance and integration advantages, coupled with industry-leading efficiency and thermal characteristics, enable multiple input multiple output (MIMO) designs that consume less power and are more thermally efficient. With lower current consumption, ANADIGICS' WiFi infrastructure power amplifiers also support the stringent power limitations of Power over Ethernet (PoE) equipment.
