Anadigics’ HELP4 power amplifier powers NEC MEDIAS smartphone

RF and mixed-signal semiconductor maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA is shipping production volumes of its AWT6621 fourth-generation High-Efficiency-at-Low-Power (HELP4) power amplifiers (PAs) to NEC CASIO Mobile Communications for the new MEDIAS IS11N smartphone, which features a 3.6 inch display, 8 megapixel camera, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.

“Our proven high-volume manufacturing capabilities coupled with support centers located around the world allow us to deliver superior service to multiple leading wireless device manufacturers,” claims says senior VP of worldwide sales Michael Canonico. “We are proud to expand our successful relationship with NEC CASIO Mobile Communications and look forward to working together to develop the next-generation of mobile devices.”

Anadigics’ HELP4 product family uses the firm’s exclusive InGaP-Plus technology to achieve optimal power-added efficiency (PAE) across low-range and mid-range output power levels (with three mode states) and provides what is claimed to be the industry’s lowest quiescent current of under 4mA.

HELP4 PAs allow a high level of integration in a 3mm by 3mm footprint (with internal voltage regulation and an integrated ‘daisy chainable’ directional RF coupler with 20dB directivity) and enable an average reduction in current consumption of 30% compared with previous-generation PAs.

In particular, the AWT6621 delivers what is claimed to be industry-leading efficiency to extend battery life in 4G handsets, smartphones, tablets, netbooks, and notebooks.
