Samsung Selects Anadigics` WiFi InGaP Chips For GALAXY Tab Pro

The 802.11ac wireless connectivity in the tab is enabled by Anadigics' indium gallium phosphide technology
Anadigics has announced that the company's AWL9293 and AWL9581 802.11ac front-end integrated circuits (FEICs) are enabling WiFi connectivity in the new GALAXY Tab Pro by Samsung Electronics.

This feature-rich tablet includes a 10.1-inch WQXGA resolution display, Exynos 5 Octa processor, 8 megapixel camera and Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. The new GALAXY Tab Pro offers a virtual keyboard that mimics a physical keyboard, leveraging haptic feedback and hotkeys to offer users a more accurate and familiar typing experience.

"We are very pleased to power both the 2.4 and 5 GHz 802.11ac WiFi bands in the new GALAXY Tab Pro," says Jonathan Griffith, vice president of WiFi Products at Anadigics. "Our FEICs deliver differentiated performance and integration to help reduce time-to-market, extend battery life and increase data rates. By collaborating with Samsung, we continue to leverage these advantages in the latest generation of tablets to deliver an enhanced user experience."

Anadigics' AWL9293 2.4 GHz and AWL9581 5 GHz FEICs use the company's patented InGaP-Plus technology and uniquely designed architectures to combine a high-performance power amplifier (PA), low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass option, and RF switch on a single die.

This level of integration greatly improves manufacturability and reliability, while reducing PCB space requirements. These FEICs also deliver exceptionally low current consumption, significantly extending battery-life in mobile applications. The complete family of 802.11ac FEICs provides outstanding error vector magnitude (EVM) and noise figure performance, which enables ultra-high data throughput.

The devices come in a 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm x 0.4 mm QFN package with a high-accuracy, integrated power detector, and RF ports internally matched to 50 Ohms to reduce PCB space requirements.

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.
