Anadigics WIFI chips shipping for Buffalo Router
RF company Anadigics has announced that it is shipping production volumes of its AND0281 and AND0581S WiFi infrastructure front-end integrated circuits (FEICs) to Buffalo for the new WXR-1750DHP router.
This high-performance 802.11ac router features three antennas with simultaneous dual-band capabilities and four gigabit wired Ethernet ports.
Based on the company's patented InGaP-Plus technology, Anadigics' WiFi infrastructure FEICs combine a high performance power amplifier (PA), low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass option and RF switch on a single die. The AND0281 is optimised for 2.4 GHz applications with 28dB linear power gain and -35dB dynamic error vector magnitude (EVM) at +18dBm output power. The AND0581S operates in the 5GHz frequency band with 29dB linear power gain and -35dB dynamic error vector magnitude (EVM) at +16dBm output power. Both FEICs are tuned for optimal performance in 802.11ac applications.
"Buffalo continues to raise the bar in router and access point connectivity with unparalleled speed, range, and features," said Masaya Ishimaru, Network Business Unit general manager at Buffalo. "Our new WXR-1750DHP 802.11ac router includes HighPower and Beamforming technologies to ensure optimal performance for even the most demanding users."
"We are very pleased to partner with Buffalo on the latest generation of its AC1750 class router," said Dave Cresci, president of Anadigics. "Reliance on WiFi networks continues to grow as the number of connected devices rises. Anadigics' WiFi infrastructure FEICs support this trend by providing an industry-leading combination of integration, efficiency, and linearity to minimise time-to-market and maximise throughput at extended ranges."
