BRUSSELS — Anadigics has released the AWM6422 power amplifier, which operates in the 2.3-2.4 GHz frequency band allocated for broadband mobile wireless services, further expanding the company's portfolio of leading edge products for WiMAX and WiBro (Korea) systems.
A variation of the company's widely accepted AWM6423, which was introduced last year, the AWM6422 is a high performance device with exceptional linearity and efficiency at high levels of output power. Designed for WiMAX and WiBro applications in the 2.3-2.4 GHz band, it supports the IEEE 802.16e-2005 wireless standard as well as the IEEE 802.16d-2004 and the ETSI EN301-021 standards.
Optimized for use in mobile devices, the AWM6422 requires a nominal +3.3 V supply, but also provides enhanced RF performance when used with supply voltages as high as +4.2V.
In addition to using the company's patented, industry-leading InGaP-Plus™ technology, the AWM6422 power amplifier features: — greater than 30 dB of RF gain; — integrated 25 dB attenuator; — integrated output power detector; — 50 Ohm matched RF ports for reduced external component count; — RoHS compliance; — and low EVM contribution at high output power levels, namely 2.5 percent EVM at +22 dBm (+3.3 V supply), 4 percent EVM at +23.5 dBm (+3.3 V supply), 2.5 percent EVM at +23.5 dBm (+4.2 V supply), and 4 percent EVM at +25 dBm (+4.2 V supply).
