ANADIGICS’ ProEficient-Plus Solutions Power Samsung’s New Galaxy S 4 Mini

ANADIGICS Secures Multiple Design Wins with Dual-Band ProEficient-Plus Power Amplifiers, Which Deliver the Industry’s Highest Efficiency Across All Power Levels to Extend Battery Life

WARREN, N.J., June 26, 2013ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today announced that the Company is shipping production volumes of its AWT6751 and AWT6755 dual-band ProEficient-Plus™ WCDMA power amplifiers (PAs) to Samsung Electronics for multiple devices, including the new Galaxy S® 4 Mini.  This smartphone features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display and is more compact than the recently released flagship Galaxy S 4, which leverages ANADIGICS’ advanced RF solutions for WiFi and cellular connectivity.  Additionally, the Galaxy S 4 Mini offers a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, 8 megapixel camera, and Android® 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

ANADIGICS’ ProEficient-Plus solutions deliver industry-leading efficiency in low-power mode for greater talk time and high-power mode for longer data application use, maximizing battery life in 3G mobile devices, such as the Galaxy S 4 Mini.  These power amplifiers are offered in highly integrated dual-band configurations that minimize RF space requirements to provide greater design flexibility.

“We are extremely pleased to continue to be a part of the Samsung Galaxy S success story,” said Jerry Miller, senior vice president of Cellular Products at ANADIGICS.  “Our dual-band ProEficient-Plus power amplifiers have set the standard for 3G performance and integration by delivering the industry’s highest efficiency across all power levels in compact dual-band packages.  Through close collaboration with ANADIGICS, Samsung is leveraging these tremendous advantages in the design of the latest generation of sleek, ultra-thin smartphones that offer exceptional battery life.”

ANADIGICS’ dual-band ProEficient-Plus power amplifiers leverage the Company’s exclusive InGaP-Plus™ technology and patented design architectures to provide exceptional performance and integration.  These power amplifiers enable greater battery life in mobile devices by delivering industry-leading efficiency in low and high power modes, as well as exceptionally low quiescent currents without the use of a DC/DC converter.  ProEficient-Plus solutions are also compatible with average power tracking (APT) to further increase efficiency and reduce current consumption at medium and low operating powers.  The complete family of dual-band ProEficient-Plus solutions are offered in compact 3 mm x 4 mm x 0.9 mm packages that feature internal voltage regulation to save valuable PCB space.

ANADIGICS Dual-Band ProEficient-Plus Family Key Facts and Highlights:

  • Industry-leading efficiency across all power levels and exceptionally low quiescent current to maximize battery life, including longer talk time and data use
  • Two independent amplification chains to provide industry-leading performance for each band
  • Compact 3 mm x 4 mm x 0.9 mm package with internal voltage regulation and integrated DC blocks on the RF ports to reduce PCB space requirements
  • Best-in-class linearity to maintain stable, high-throughput 3G connections
