ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a leading supplier of wireless and broadband solutions, today announced that it is shipping its AWT6277 HELP(TM) WCDMA power amplifier (PA) module for the innovative Samsung SGH i600 smartphone. Specifically designed to address the Europe and Asia/Pacific region, the SGH i600 is aimed at the high growth 3G smartphone market.
Measuring only 11.8mm and weighing a mere 99g, the Samsung SGH i600 is the world’s thinnest 3G smartphone with a full QWERTY key board. It blends the feature-rich, desktop functionality of the Microsoft(R) Windows Mobile(R) 5.0 platform with multimedia capabilities to help people work and play anywhere. The Samsung SGH i600 supports the HSDPA network for faster data transfer speeds, as well as seamless communications through high-speed connectivity over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0 EDR. It is also the first smartphone to support web applications such as podcasting and RSS feeds.
“We are extremely pleased that Samsung Electronics has selected ANADIGICS’ best-in-class 3G WCDMA power amplifier for the Blackjack(TM) smartphone,” said Dr. Bami Bastani, President and CEO of ANADIGICS. “ANADIGICS’ industry-leading WCDMA and EDGE power amplifiers deliver excellent voice clarity and data integrity, as well as improving talk time of 3G devices. Our strong 3G product portfolio and strategic relationships with tier-one manufacturers like Samsung continues to drive ANADIGICS’ share in the 3G market upward.”
Specifically designed to meet the needs of feature rich mobile handsets, the AWT6277 HELP(TM) WCDMA PA includes ANADIGICS’ High-Efficiency-at-Low-Power (HELP(TM)) technology which reduces WCDMA average power consumption by 50%. Selectable bias modes optimize efficiency for different output power levels, providing outstanding efficiencies of 41% at +28.5 dBm and 21% at +16 dBm. Combined with low leakage current in shutdown mode, the AWT6277 PA delivers longer battery life and additional talk-time-two key metrics for mobile handset designers. The self-contained 4 mm x 4 mm x 1.1 mm surface-mount PA incorporates matching networks optimized for output power, efficiency, and linearity in a 50 ohm system, which reduces device footprint and the need for external components, making it extremely well suited for super-thin designs. AWT6277 HELP(TM) PA is enabled by ANADIGICS’ advanced InGaP-Plus(TM) HBT technology which combines InGaP HBT & pHEMT devices on the same die and delivers state-of-the-art performance, reliability, temperature stability, and ruggedness.
