Anadigics WIFI Chips Shipping For Buffalo Router

InGaP front end ICs provide integration, efficiency, and linearity to latest 802.11ac 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."

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.
