"We are excited to collaborate with TRENDnet to enable the next level of performance in WiFi infrastructure products," said Alex Miller, product marketing manager for WiFi Products at ANADIGICS. "WiFi routers and access points are a critical part of the connectivity infrastructure both inside and outside the home. As the total number of connected devices increases, it's essential for a WiFi network to maintain a rich overall user experience. ANADIGICS' AWL5911 802.11ac WiFi power amplifier provides exceptional linearity, output power, and gain to help TRENDnet's AC3200 tri-band router deliver high-throughput connectivity at extended ranges even in crowded WiFi network situations."

The TRENDnet AC3200 TEW-828DRU router uses six AWL5911 amplifiers in each unit to drive high power in the 5 GHz band to each of six antennas. The simultaneous operation of multiple transmit chains puts tremendous emphasis on power amplifier operating efficiency, which ensures good system thermal management without expensive heat sinking.

The AWL5911 power amplifier delivers 33 dB of linear power gain and 1.8% EVM at +22 dBm output power with outstanding power efficiency to ensure excellent thermal operation. The AWL5911 also features an internal digital PA enable interface that eliminates the need for an external buffer amplifier, as well as an integrated detector that facilitates accurate power control over varying load conditions (3:1 VSWR). ANADIGICS' family of 802.11ac WiFi power amplifiers for infrastructure applications leverages the Company's patented InGaP-Plus™ technology and unique design architectures to offer world-class performance and integration.
