Anadigics introduces AWB7129 small-cell PA

RF component maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA has launched has introduced the AWB7129 small-cell power amplifier (PA), which is optimized for Band 8 WCDMA and LTE applications, including picocells, enterprise-class femtocells, and high performance customer premises equipment (CPE). 

Based on the firm’s patented InGaP-Plus, the AWB7129 small-cell PA is optimized for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell base stations operating in the 925 MHz to 960 MHz frequency band.  The PA delivers 15% efficiency to minimize power requirements.  With linearity of -47 dBc ACPR @ +/- 10 MHz offset, +24.5 dBm linear output power, and 30 dB gain, the AWB7129 provides high throughput data rates with a wide coverage area, says the firm.  AWB7129 is provided in a compact, low profile 7 mm x 7 mm x 1.3 mm surface mount package with integrated RF matching to reduce PCB space requirements.

“Mobile data use is rapidly rising as users transition from feature phones to smartphones, and attachment rates of 3G / 4G functionality to tablets, notebooks, and gaming devices increase,” said Glenn Eswein, director of product marketing for infrastructure products at Anadigics. “Cost effective, high performance small-cell base stations, such as picocells and femtocells, are designed to help carriers meet this growing demand for wireless data, especially in dense geographic locations and campus environments.  Anadigics’ small-cell power amplifiers are optimized for these applications by enabling manufacturers to develop wireless infrastructure solutions with exceptional throughput and range to deliver a world-class user experience.”

Engineering samples of the AWB7129 are available now for qualified programs.
