Samsung selects Anadigics’ ProEficient-Plus WCDMA power amplifiers for Galaxy Mega phablet

Broadband wireless and wireline communications component maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA says that its AWT6751 and AWT6755 dual-band ProEficient-Plus WCDMA power amplifiers (PAs) are enabling wireless connectivity in Samsung Electronics’ new Galaxy Mega phablet (which features either a 6.3-inch or a 5.8-inch display blending the functionality and form factor of both a smartphone and tablet). The Galaxy Mega has a dual-core processor operating at up to 1.7GHz, a 8 megapixel camera, and an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

“Our dual-band ProEficient-Plus solutions not only help to extend battery life in power-hungry, large-screen mobile devices, but also deliver space-saving integration to provide greater design flexibility,” says Jerry Miller, senior VP of Cellular Products. “We look forward to powering the next-generation of feature-rich smartphones, phablets and tablets.”

Anadigics says that dual-band ProEficient-Plus solutions use its exclusive InGaP-Plus technology and patented design architectures to deliver high performance and integration. The power amplifiers deliver high efficiency in low-power mode for greater talk time and high-power mode for longer data application use. This performance, combined with low quiescent current (of 6mA) without the use of a DC/DC converter, maximizes battery life in 3G mobile devices. ProEficient-Plus power amplifiers are also compatible with average power tracking (APT) to further increase efficiency and reduce current consumption at medium and low operating powers.

The complete family of dual-band ProEficient-Plus solutions are offered in compact 3mm x 4mm x 0.9mm packages and feature internal voltage regulation and integrated DC blocks on the RF ports to save valuable PCB space.
