US Infrastructure Manufacturer Selects Anadigics' PAs

High-performance PAs enable 802.11n and 802.11acin customer premises equipment

Anadigics, the US manufacturer of RF products, has announced that it is shipping production volumes of its AWL5905 and AWL5910 power amplifiers to a next-generation communications technology company.  These high-performance power amplifiers are being used for new 802.11n and 802.11ac WiFi infrastructure customer premises equipment (CPE).

"Adoption of the 802.11ac standard continues to accelerate as consumers and businesses increasingly turn to WiFi networks for data and multimedia connectivity," said Jerry Miller, senior VPt of worldwide sales and applications at Anadigics.

 "As manufacturers develop the newest generation of WiFi infrastructure devices to support this trend, Anadigics' power amplifiers stand out as critical enablers.  Our 802.11ac solutions deliver a world-class combination of linearity, efficiency and gain to enable infrastructure devices with higher data throughput at greater range, all while consuming less power.  These advantages are being validated by production shipments in support of multiple platforms at this top-tier WiFi equipment manufacturer."

Anadigics' 802.11ac WiFi power amplifiers for infrastructure applications use the company's patented InGaP-Plus technology.  The AWL5905 power amplifier delivers 30 dB of linear power gain and 2.0 percent EVM at 19.5 dBm, while the AWL5910 power amplifier provides 31 dB of linear power gain and 1.8 percent EVM at 22 dBm output power.

The company's 802.11ac WiFi power amplifiers integrate a digital PA enable interface that eliminates the need for costly external circuitry.  The AWL5905 and AWL5910 power amplifiers also feature an integrated detector that facilitates accurate power control over varying load conditions. 

These features enable multiple input multiple output (MIMO) designs that consume less power and are more thermally efficient.  With lower current consumption, Anadigics' WiFi infrastructure power amplifiers also support the stringent power limitations of Power over Ethernet (PoE) equipment.

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.
