"The rapid growth in mobile data usage is driving carriers to seek cost effective methods to increase network capacity, especially in dense geographic locations," said Glenn Eswein, director of product marketing for broadband RF products at ANADIGICS. "Small-cell devices, such as picocells and femtocells, provide carriers with an economical, high performance solution that can be deployed quickly." ANADIGICS' small-cell power amplifiers have been developed specifically for these applications, and enable wireless infrastructure solutions that are more thermally-efficient, consume less power, enable higher throughput, and provide greater coverage and range.

The AWB7125 wireless infrastructure PA provides +24.5 dBm linear output power, while the AWB7225 provides +27 dBm linear output power.  Both power amplifiers are optimized for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell base stations operating in the 860 MHz to 894 MHz frequency bands. ANADIGICS' complete family of small-cell wireless infrastructure power amplifiers is manufactured using the Company's exclusive InGaP-Plus™ technology to achieve best-in-class efficiency, linearity and thermal performance.
