Samsung Selects Anadigics For Galaxy Mega

Anadigics provide the wireless connectivity in the new Galaxy Mega
Anadigics Inc. has 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

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
