WARREN, N.J., June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced the new ProEficient™ WCDMA / LTE power amplifier (PA) product family.  The Company's ProEficient™ PAs have been optimized for the next generation of 4G devices, by delivering world-class efficiency across all power levels.  These products uniquely combine greater talk time in low-power mode with longer data application use in high-power mode.  The result is an enhanced overall user experience and extended battery life across all operating conditions of modern smartphone and tablet devices, as well as lower overall system cost.


"4G devices enable users to tap into ultra-fast broadband speeds, resulting in greater data use," said Jerry Miller, vice president of business development and marketing at ANADIGICS. "This change in use patterns drives the power amplifier to operate more frequently in high power mode. By delivering outstanding efficiency in both high and low power modes, ANADIGICS' new ProEficient™ power amplifiers are helping manufacturers set the standard for 4G battery-life."

ANADIGICS' ProEficient™ power amplifiers use the Company's exclusive InGaP-Plus™ technology to achieve outstanding efficiency at high and low power modes in order to maximize 4G battery-life without the use of a DC-DC converter.  These power amplifiers are also optimized for use with average power tracking (APT) to further increase efficiency and reduce current consumption at medium and low operating powers.  In addition to outstanding efficiency, ProEficient™ power amplifiers deliver exceptional linearity to ensure a stable connection for clear voice and high-speed data.  The first ProEficient™ PAs are available for use in the world's most widely used 3G/4G frequency bands, such as bands1, 2, 3/4/9/10, 5, and 8.
