Anadigics’ 802.11ac WiFi front-end IC and cellular PAs selected by Samsung for Galaxy S 4 smartphone

GaAs-based broadband wireless and wireline communications component maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA says that its AWL9581 802.11ac front-end IC (FEIC), AWT6651 ProEficient power amplifier (PA), AWT6624 HELP4 PA, and AWC6323 HELP3E dual-band PA enable wireless connectivity in the Galaxy S 4 by Samsung Electronics.

“The selection of ANADIGICS’ differentiated, battery-saving solutions for this flagship device not only exemplifies the tremendous performance advantages offered by our products, but also the strength of our relationship with Samsung,” says chairman, president & CEO Ron Michels. “Our goal is to continue to support Samsung through each successive generation of mobile connectivity.”

Anadigics’ 802.11ac FEICs leverage the firm’s exclusive InGaP-Plus technology and patented design architectures to combine a high-performance power amplifier (PA), low-noise amplifier (LNA), and RF switch on a single die. This level of integration on a single die greatly improves manufacturability and reliability, as well as reducing PCB space requirements and simplifying RF front-end design to speed time-to-market. The AWL9581 5GHz FEIC uses InGaP-Plus to deliver what is claimed to be the industry’s lowest current consumption, extending battery life in mobile applications. The complete family of FEICs provides what is claimed to be outstanding error vector magnitude (EVM) and noise figure performance, enabling ultra-high data throughput. The AWL9581 is featured in the Galaxy S 4 across multiple regions and carriers.

Anadigics’ ProEficient, HELP4, and HELP3E power amplifiers also use InGaP-Plus and unique design architectures to provide greater efficiency in low-power mode and to extend talk-time. Additionally, ProEficient PAs offer exceptional performance in high-power mode to minimize current consumption when using 3G and 4G data services and maximize overall battery-life.

The AWT6651 is featured in the Galaxy S 4 for China Mobile, the AWT6624 is being used in the Galaxy S 4 for U+ in Korea, and the AWC6323 is being used in the Galaxy S 4 for China Unicom.
