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' 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.
