Javelin’s monolithic CMOS PA shipping in Samsung’s Galaxy Appeal smartphone

Javelin Semiconductor Inc of Austin, TX, USA says that South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co Ltd is shipping Javelin's PA in the new Galaxy Appeal for AT&T. Javelin's PAs deliver high efficiency across the wide range of required output power levels to extend handset battery life. Additionally, says Javelin, with integrated filtering and the best noise performance on the market today, the PA can eliminate the cost of transmit surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters, enhance wireless receiver sensitivity and improve overall smartphone performance by minimizing interference with wireless radios such as Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi.

Samsung’s Galaxy Appeal is an Android-based 3G smartphone featuring a 3.2-inch touchscreen, 800MHz processor, side-slider QWERTY keyboard, 3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi.

“Javelin's proven monolithic CMOS PA technology is now shipping in numerous handsets," said Brad Fluke, president & CEO of Javelin. "The JAV550X PA family is in full production supporting the most popular 3G bands for worldwide coverage. Javelin's innovative solution brings both performance and cost benefits to handset manufacturers.”

Using a standard CMOS process, Javelin has implemented a mixed-signal architecture that achieves the highest levels of quality, reliability and robustness combined with supply assurance from the world's largest foundry. Javelin offers a family of CMOS 3G PAs for all major 3G bands in a standard 3x3 mm package that are software compatible with existing 3G baseband platforms.
