Anadigics’ HELP4 PAs power Huawei Honor WCDMA smartphone

RF and mixed-signal semiconductor maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA is shipping production volumes of its AWT6621 -generation High-Efficiency-at-Low-Power (HELP4) power amplifiers (PAs) to China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd for the Huawei Honor smartphone. The Huawei Honor features a 4-inch high-definition (HD) screen, 8 megapixel camera, 1.4 GHz processor, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.

“We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with Huawei, a supplier of handsets and telecom network equipment to some of the world’s largest wireless networks,” says Michael Canonico, senior VP of worldwide sales.

HELP4 4G PAs use Anadigics’ exclusive InGaP-Plus technology to achieve optimal efficiency across low-range and mid-range output power levels (with three mode states) and provide low quiescent currents of less than 4mA. Anadigics also claims best-in-class linearity at maximum output power. In particular, the AWT6621 delivers what is claimed to be industry-leading efficiency to extend battery life in handsets, smart phones, tablets, netbooks, and notebooks.

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.
