Anadigics Expands WiFi Infrastructure Range

New InGaP-Plus PA targets 802.11ac Wave 2 applications

Anadigics today introduced the AWL5911 power amplifier (PA) optimised for 802.11a/n/ac WiFi infrastructure and multimedia applications. 

The new AWL5911 is said to deliver an industry-leading combination of linearity, efficiency, gain and thermal characteristics, while minimising external components.  These performance and integration advantages help 802.11ac Wave 2 solutions enable multi-user multi-input/multi-output (MU-MIMO) functionality, take advantage of 160MHz channels, and make use of an additional transmit spatial stream. 

"The new features available with Wave 2 promise to enrich the experience for WiFi users connected to an expanding array of infrastructure and multimedia devices," said Dave Cresci, president of Anadigics. He added: "Anadigics' family of 802.11ac WiFi power amplifiers is enabling this trend by delivering exceptional linearity, output power and gain to enable ultra-high data throughput."

Anadigics' WiFi PAs use the company's patented InGaP-Plus technology.  The AWL5911 power amplifier delivers 33 dB of linear power gain and 1.8 percent EVM at 22dBm output power to ensure stable, reliable high-throughput WiFi connectivity in the toughest modulation formats. 

The AWL5911 also features an internal digital PA enable interface that eliminates the need for an external buffer amplifier, as well as an integrated detector that facilitates accurate power control over varying load conditions (3:1 VSWR). This level of integration reduces surface mount passive components and simplifies RF design, saving valuable board space, reducing bill of materials, and accelerating time-to-market.



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.
