Warren, N.J.Anadigics Inc. has announced its AWT6281 HELP3 WCDMA Linear Power Amplifier (PA) engineered specifically for use in advanced 3G handsets for EGSM (Band 8) UMTS wireless networks.
The PA extends the operating time of 3G handsets and data cards, which is critical for successful operation using High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) networks. AWT6281 has been specified by leading chipset manufacturers for selected reference designs.
According to Anadigics, the AWT6281 provides full compliance with HSDPA and HSUPA requirements and reduces average current consumption by 75 percent compared to competing devices. The PA provides low quiescent currents of 7 mA without a DC-DC converter and eliminates the need for an external voltage regulator. The self-contained 4 mm x 4 mm x 1.1 mm surface mount package incorporates matching networks optimized for output power, efficiency and linearity. The AWT6281's performance and integration capabilities are achieved using ANADIGICS' patented InGaP-Plus technology, which combines bipolar and FET devices on the same GaAs die.
Engineered specifically for UMTS900 operation, the AWT6281 PA enables leading manufacturers to design and develop the advanced 3G handsets and data cards required for successful conversion to UMTS900 worldwide.
