New Small-Cell Power Amplifier Provides Industry-Leading Combination of Efficiency, Linearity, and Thermal Performance for WCDMA / LTE Equipment Operating in Band 8


WARREN, N.J., April 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD) ("ANADIGICS or the Company"), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced the AWB7229 small-cell power amplifier (PA). The AWB7229 is optimized to deliver world-class efficiency, linearity, output power and thermal characteristics for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell base stations operating in the 925 MHz to 960 MHz frequency band (Band 8). Manufacturers are able to leverage this performance to develop infrastructure solutions that consume less power, offer higher throughput, and provide greater coverage and range.

"The rapid increase in wireless data consumption places tremendous pressure on existing wireless infrastructure," said Charles Armour, senior director of business development for Wireless Infrastructure Products at ANADIGICS. "With the industry's broadest portfolio of high-performance power amplifiers for small-cell applications, ANADIGICS is enabling the newest generation of high throughput, reliable, and compact base stations, including picocells, enterprise-class femtocells, and high-performance customer premises equipment (CPE). These solutions provide an economical and pragmatic path to expand broadband network capacity and are gaining momentum with service providers."

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 AWB7229 power amplifier delivers 13% efficiency to minimize power requirements. With exceptional linearity of -47 dBc ACPR @ +27 dBm linear output power and 29 dB gain, the AWB7229 is optimized to provide high throughput data rates with a wide coverage area. This power amplifier is available in the same compact, low-profile 7 mm x 7 mm x 1.3 mm surface mount package used across the entire AWB71XX and AWB72XX product lines, allowing the same PCB layout to be used for different bands and power levels. The AWB7229 power amplifier also offers integrated bias, which eliminates the need for complicated external circuitry and reduces PCB space requirements.
