Anadigics adds Small-Cell Wireless PA

New PA boost performance in WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell base stations
Anadigics has recently introduced the AWB7229 small-cell power amplifier (PA). The AWB7229, built using the company's InGaP-Plus technology, is designed to deliver high efficiency, linearity, output power and thermal characteristics for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell base stations operating in the 925MHz to 960MHz frequency band (Band 8).

According to the company, manufacturers can use this performance to develop infrastructure solutions that consume less power, offer higher throughput, and provide greater coverage and range.

"The rapid increase in wireless data consumption places tremendous pressure on existing wireless infrastructure," said Charles Armour, senior director of business development for Wireless Infrastructure Products at Anadigics.

"With the industry's broadest portfolio of high-performance power amplifiers for small-cell applications, Anadigics is enabling the newest generation of high throughput, reliable, and compact base stations, including picocells, enterprise-class femtocells, and high-performance customer premises equipment (CPE). These solutions provide an economical and pragmatic path to expand broadband network capacity and are gaining momentum with service providers."

The AWB7229 power amplifier delivers 13 percent efficiency to minimise power requirement. Linearity is -47dBc ACPR @ +27dBm linear output power and 29dB gain.

The power amplifier is available in a low-profile 7mm x 7mm x 1.3 mm surface mount package.
