Stocks in this article: ANAD

WARREN, N.J., May 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced a new family of 802.11ac power amplifiers (PAs) optimized for WiFi infrastructure and multimedia applications, including access points, routers, media gateways, set-top boxes, and smart TVs. These power amplifiers deliver an industry-leading combination of high gain, output power, and linearity to maximize data throughput and ensure reliable transmission of high definition (HD) video at extended ranges. The Company's new 802.11ac solutions also feature greater integration compared with a typical power amplifier, reducing external component requirements and saving valuable PCB space.

"ANADIGICS continues to set the RF performance standard for WiFi applications," said Dave Cresci, vice president of WiFi Products at ANADIGICS. "Our latest power amplifiers stand out as critical enablers in the expanding use of 802.11ac MIMO technology for WiFi infrastructure in both commercial and residential applications. They complement and build upon the success of our highly integrated front-end ICs by offering exceptional gain, output power and linearity to deliver higher data rates at greater ranges for an enhanced computing and multimedia user experience."

ANADIGICS' new family of WiFi power amplifiers leverage the Company's exclusive InGaP- Plus™ technology and patented design architectures to offer world-class performance and integration. The first product in this family is the AWL5905 power amplifier, which offers 29 dB of gain and is optimized for 5 GHz WLAN standards, including 802.11a/n/ac. The AWL5905 features an integrated detector that facilitates accurate power control over varying load conditions (3:1 VSWR), as well as a digital PA enable interface that improves ease of use and eliminates the requirement for an external buffer amplifier. This level of integration includes internal RF matching and is provided in a compact, low-profile 4 mm x 4 mm x 0.8 mm surface-mount package that significantly reduces PCB space requirements. ANADIGICS' AWL5905 also combines world-class efficiency and thermal performance, enabling manufacturers to develop multiple input multiple output (MIMO) solutions that consume less power and are more thermally efficient.

ANADIGICS 802.11ac WiFi Power Amplifier Family Key Facts and Highlights:

  • High gain and output power levels to ensure optimal performance in infrastructure and multimedia applications
  • Ultra-low EVM in the toughest 802.11ac modulation formats, enabling extremely high transmission data rates
  • High-accuracy, integrated power detector to ensure accurate power control over varying load conditions
  • CMOS-compatible enable voltage to improve ease of use
  • Compact 4 mm x 4 mm x 0.8 mm QFN package with RF ports internally matched to 50 Ohms and DC blocked to reduce PCB space requirements
  • Best-in-class power efficiency for improved thermal characteristics to support MIMO applications

Engineering samples of the AWL5905 are available now for qualified programs.
