ANADIGICS Introduces Dual-Band ProEficient Power Amplifiers
ANADIGICS’ New Dual-Band ProEficient 3G / 4G Power Amplifiers Drive Greater Battery-Life, While Reducing Space Requirements
ANADIGICS, Inc. a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, recently expanded its ProEficient 3G / 4G power amplifier (PA) product family with the introduction of new dual-band PAs. The Company’s new dual-band ProEficient power amplifiers deliver world-class efficiency across all power levels to extend overall battery-life in mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets.
ANADIGICS’ new ProEficient power amplifiers leverage the Company’s exclusive InGaP-Plus technology and patented design architectures to provide greater talk time in low-power mode with longer data application use in high-power mode. This differentiated technology also enables higher levels of integration, reducing three-dimensional space requirements for dual-band 3G and 4G applications.
“Modern 4G smart phones provide users with access to incredibly fast data speeds that rival many wired broadband connections,” said Jerry Miller, vice president of Wireless Mobile Products at ANADIGICS. “However, the increasing use of 4G data is driving greater current consumption, decreasing battery-life in both smartphones and tablets. By combining the industry’s highest efficiency across all power levels with a highly integrated small footprint package, ANADIGICS’ new dual-band ProEficient power amplifiers not only offer a smart path to greater battery-life, but also enable sleek designs.”
ANADIGICS’ dual-band ProEficient power amplifiers feature two independent amplification chains to deliver outstanding performance for each band. These power amplifiers provide industry-leading efficiency at high and low power modes, to maximize 4G battery-life without the use of a DC-DC converter. ProEficient power amplifiers are also optimized for use with average power tracking (APT) to further increase efficiency and reduce current consumption at medium and low operating powers. By combining frequently used band combinations with an internal voltage regulator in compact 3 mm by 4 mm packages, these battery-life extending power amplifiers also help to save valuable PCB space.
