Photo Release -- ANADIGICS Introduces TD-LTE Small-Cell Power Amplifiers

WARREN, N.J., Oct. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD) (the "Company"), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced six new power amplifiers (PAs) optimized for TD-LTE (Time-Division Long-Term Evolution) small-cell applications. TD-LTE, like LTE FDD (Long-Term Evolution Frequency Division Duplex), is a 4G telecommunications standard. While LTE FDD is the dominant global standard for LTE services today, TD-LTE networks are being rolled-out by several major carriers, including China Mobile. According to a recent report by DIGITIMES Research, worldwide TD-LTE subscribers are forecasted to increase from 12.48 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014 to 276.2 million at the end of 2016.

ANADIGICS' TD-LTE power amplifiers are optimized for small-cell applications, including picocells, enterprise-class femtocells, and high-performance customer premises equipment (CPE).

ANADIGICS' AWB7031, AWB7032, AWB7228, AWB7231, AWB7232 and AWB7239 TD-LTE power amplifiers are optimized for small-cell applications, including picocells, enterprise-class femtocells, and high-performance customer premises equipment (CPE). These solutions deliver an industry-leading combination of output power, linearity, power-added efficiency and thermal characteristics. By combining this level of performance with exceptional integration and smart design choices that eliminate the need for complicated external bias circuitry, ANADIGICS' small-cell power amplifiers enable manufacturers to easily develop compact wireless infrastructure solutions that are more thermally-efficient, consume less power, enable higher throughput, and provide greater coverage and range.

"TD-LTE networks are quickly adding subscribers as a variety of providers adopt this high performance standard," said James Martin, senior director of business development for Infrastructure Products at ANADIGICS. "Our new TD-LTE solutions deliver optimal performance for the newest generation of small-cell devices and solidify our position as a leader in the wireless infrastructure market. With the highest linearity and efficiency in their class, ANADIGICS' TD-LTE small-cell power amplifiers offer an economical path for providers to expand broadband network coverage in support of more subscribers."

ANADIGICS' complete family of small-cell wireless infrastructure power amplifiers leverages the Company's unique InGaP-Plus™ technology and innovative design architectures to deliver industry-leading performance and integration. The AWB7031 and AWB7032 power amplifiers are optimized for ¼-Watt linear output power applications and featured in compact 5 mm by 5 mm packages. The AWB7228, AWB7231, AWB7232 and AWB7239 power amplifiers deliver +27 dBm output power for ½-Watt linear output power applications. These new small-cell power amplifiers also support the short turn-on-time requirements of TD-LTE applications.
