Samsung GALAXY Note 3 Powered By Anadigics WiFi Devices
Anadigics’ indium gallium phosphide (InGaP) technology is utilised in the 802.11ac WiFi Front-End IC, ProEficient power amplifier, and HELP4 power amplifier
Anadigics' AWL9581 802.11ac front-end integrated circuit (FEIC), AWT6651 ProEficient power amplifier (PA), and ALT6702 HELP4 PA are enabling wireless connectivity in Samsung's new GALAXY Note 3.
The GALAXY Note 3 improves upon the Note II, which is also powered by Anadigics’ RF solutions, by providing a larger 5.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display, faster processor, slimmer size and longer battery life. The GALAXY Note 3 also features a 13 megapixel camera and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system.
“We are very pleased to announce that the GALAXY Note 3 is the latest in a wide array of premier Samsung mobile devices, including the S® 4, S 4 Mini, Tab 3 and Mega, that are powered by our world-class RF products," says Dave Cresci, president of Anadigics.
“Anadigics continues to deliver WiFi and cellular solutions that set the standard for both performance and integration. Our compact RF power amplifiers and front-end ICs are easy to use, enable wireless connectivity with greater throughput, and offer extended battery life. These RF advantages provide tangible benefits during the design, manufacture and ultimately end-consumer use of Samsung’s exceptional wireless devices. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Samsung on their next generation of phones and tablets."
The AWL9581 5 GHz FEIC, AWT6651 ProEficient PA and ALT6702 HELP4 PA all leverage Anadigics’ exclusive InGaP-Plus technology and patented design architectures to provide superior performance and integration.
The company’s 802.11ac FEICs combine a high-performance power amplifier, low-noise amplifier (LNA) and RF switch on a single die to significantly improve manufacturability and reliability. This level of integration also reduces PCB space requirements and simplifies RF front-end design for faster time-to-market.
The complete family of 802.11ac FEICs offers outstanding error vector magnitude (EVM) and noise figure performance, which enables ultra-high data throughput. Anadigics’ WiFi FEICs deliver the industry’s lowest current consumption, significantly extending battery-life in mobile applications.
ProEficient power amplifiers provide high efficiency across all power modes to extend 3G and 4G talk time and data use for longer overall battery life with or without the use of a DC-DC converter.
These power amplifiers are optimised for use with average power tracking (APT) to further increase efficiency and reduce current consumption at medium and low operating powers. HELP4 power amplifiers offer three mode states to optimise efficiency at low-range and mid-range output power levels.
In addition to outstanding efficiency, Anadigics says its ProEficient and HELP4 power amplifiers deliver exceptional linearity to ensure a stable connection for clear voice and high-speed data usage.
