"We recognize the tremendous diversity in mobile device requirements, ranging from voice-centric feature phones to power-hungry smartphones and tablets," said Navi Miglani, product marketing director of Cellular Products at ANADIGICS. "Our new ProVantage power amplifiers are optimized to deliver outstanding value by providing a best-in-class combination of high power mode efficiency, linearity, and reduced system costs. This, addition to our world-class cellular products portfolio, complements our industry-leading ProEficient™ and ProEficient-Plus™ solutions and enables ANADIGICS to target the needs of a wider range of market segments."

ANADIGICS ProVantage power amplifiers leverage the Company's InGaP-Plus™ technology to achieve outstanding performance and integration. These power amplifiers help extend battery life by offering three selectable bias modes that optimize efficiency for low, medium and high output power levels, as well as a shutdown mode with low leakage current. ProVantage solutions are also designed for use with an external switch mode power supply (SMPS), such as average power tracking (APT), to further increase efficiency and reduce current consumption at low and medium operating powers. ANADIGICS' ProVantage power amplifiers provide world-class linearity to ensure stable cellular connectivity and high data throughput. The complete family of ProVantage solutions are offered in compact 3 mm x 3 mm x 0.9 mm packages and feature internal voltage regulation to save valuable PCB space.
