ANADIGICS, a provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) solutions, announced that it has released new WiMAX/LTE (News - Alert) power amplifiers (PA) that are designed to offer higher linear output power to deliver greater range and throughput.

According to the company, the new AWM6268 WiMAX (News - Alert)/LTE power amplifier meets the stringent linearity and output power requirements of Mobile WiMAX and LTE consumer products. The device is manufactured on an advanced InGaP HBT MMIC technology offering state-of-the-art reliability, temperature stability, and ruggedness. A shutdown mode with low leakage current increases talk and standby time, and an integrated step attenuator enables gain control. The self-contained 4 mm x 4 mm x 1 mm surface mount package incorporates matching networks optimized for output power, efficiency, and linearity in a 50 ? system.

The amplifier can increase output power to deliver greater range and throughput in the 2.5 GHz to 2.7 GHz frequency band and also deliver exceptional linearity and output power for LTE applications. The device is ideal for high data rate broadband wireless devices, such as smartphones, notebook PCs, netbooks, data cards, and Wi-Fi hotspots.

ANADIGICS asserted that the expansion of ANADIGICS' 4G power amplifier family demonstrates its commitment to innovation and product excellence. As 4G applications evolve, it is becoming more evident that the performance of the PA affects network performance and the user experience directly. The new AWM6268 power amplifier enables a wider range of these applications by delivering enhanced linear output power and efficiency.

Officials with the company exclaimed that while LTE technology continues to gain traction, mobile broadband system operators around the world continue to deploy and expand WiMAX networks, offering new WiMAX-enabled devices to support the rapidly increasing demand for wireless data. ANADIGICS remains at the forefront of WiMAX RF performance by providing power amplifiers that enable longer range and higher throughput, while maximizing battery-life. These performance advantages have been validated by volume shipments of their existing WiMAX PA products, and through design wins with the new AWM6268 power amplifier.
