Anadigics' WiFi front-end IC selected for Huawei's Honor 4X smartphone

Broadband wireless and wireline communications component maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA is shipping production volumes of its AWL9281 front-end integrated circuit (FEIC) to Huawei for the new Honor 4X smartphone. The value-priced smartphone, available in China and showcased at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January, offers a large 5.5-inch IPS display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, and 13 megapixel rear-facing camera.

"The growing list of Huawei devices powered by Anadigics' products shows the strength of the relationship forged between our two companies," says Jerry Miller, Anadigics' senior VP of worldwide sales & applications. "We understand the many challenges that manufacturers face as competition continues to fuel smartphone innovation across all price points, from functionality to form," he adds. "Anadigics has responded to these challenges by developing WiFi FEICs that offer a stellar level of performance and integration, enabling compact designs with ultra-fast wireless connectivity and extended battery life." 

Anadigics' family of WiFi FEICs leverages its patented InGaP-Plus technology and uniquely designed architectures to combine a high-performance power amplifier (PA), low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass option and SP3T Tx/Rx RF switch with Bluetooth on a single die. This level of integration simplifies RF design and greatly improves manufacturability and reliability, while reducing PCB space requirements and accelerating time-to-market, says Anadigics. Operating at 2400-2500MHz, the AWL9281 FEIC provides error vector magnitude (EVM) of 2.3% in the toughest modulation formats and what is claimed to be outstanding noise figure performance, enabling ultra-high data throughput. The AWL9281 also operates with low current consumption, extending battery life in mobile applications. 

The compact 2.5mm x 2.5mm x 0.4mm QFN package also incorporates a high-accuracy, integrated power detector and RF ports internally matched to 50 Ohms to reduce PCB space requirements.
