Anadigics ships production volumes of HELP3E PAs for Samsung’s new Galaxy Nexus smartphone

RF and mixed-signal semiconductor maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA is shipping production volumes of its AWC6323 dual-band High-Efficiency-at-Low-Power (HELP3E) power amplifiers (PAs) to Samsung Electronics for its new Galaxy Nexus smartphone.

The feature-packed Galaxy Nexus features a slim, curved case that contains a 4.65-inch high-definition display, 5 megapixel camera, and 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Available through Verizon Wireless, the Galaxy Nexus is also the first smartphone to use the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

“The selection of Anadigics’ dual-band power amplifier for the flagship Galaxy Nexus from Samsung demonstrates the strength of the relationship forged between Anadigics and Samsung,” says Anadigics’ president & CEO Ron Michels. “Samsung Electronics remains at the forefront of the mobile digital lifestyle by continually innovating and evolving the smartphone... Our goal is to support Samsung through each successive generation of mobile connectivity,” he adds.

Anadigics’ HELP3E PAs use the firm’s exclusive InGaP-Plus technology to achieve optimal power-added efficiencies (PAEs) across low-range and mid-range output power levels (with three mode states) and to provide low quiescent currents of 4mA. Anadigics also claims best-in-class linearity at maximum output power.

In a single package with a 3mm by 5mm footprint, the compact HELP3E dual-band devices contain two independent PAs, an integrated voltage regulator, and an integrated RF coupler. This level of integration reduces printed circuit board (PCB) space by 25% compared with current-generation dual-band solutions, Anadigics says.
