Samsung Selects ANADIGICS’ ProEficient-Plus Solutions for Galaxy Mega

ANADIGICS’ High Performance, Space-Saving Dual-Band ProEficient-Plus Power Amplifiers Deliver the Industry’s Highest Efficiency Across All Power Levels to Extend Battery Life

WARREN, N.J., Aug. 8, 2013ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD) (the “Company”), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today announced that the Company’s AWT6751 and AWT6755 dual-band ProEficient-Plus™ WCDMA power amplifiers (PAs) enable wireless connectivity in the new Galaxy Mega by Samsung Electronics.  This phablet features either an expansive 6.3 or 5.8-inch display blending the functionality and form factor of both a smartphone and tablet.  The Galaxy Mega offers up to a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, 8 megapixel camera, and Android® 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

“The selection of ANADIGICS’ AWT6751 and AWT6755 power amplifiers for the Galaxy Mega demonstrates the tremendous strength of our relationship with Samsung, and the compelling advantages enabled by ProEficient-Plus technology,” said Jerry Miller, senior vice president of Cellular Products at ANADIGICS.  “Our dual-band ProEficient-Plus solutions not only help to extend battery life in power-hungry, large-screen mobile devices, but also deliver space-saving integration to provide greater design flexibility.  We are extremely pleased to work closely with Samsung and look forward to powering the next-generation of feature-rich smartphones, phablets and tablets.”

ANADIGICS’ dual-band ProEficient-Plus solutions utilize the Company’s exclusive InGaP-Plus™ technology and patented design architectures to deliver exceptional performance and integration.  These power amplifiers deliver industry-leading efficiency in low-power mode for greater talk time and high-power mode for longer data application use.  This level of performance, combined with exceptionally low quiescent currents without the use of a DC/DC converter, maximizes battery life in 3G mobile devices.  ProEficient-Plus power amplifiers 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 and 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
  • RF matching optimized for output power, efficiency, and linearity in a 50-Ohm system
