Samsung selects Anadigics’ ProVantage power amplifiers for GALAXY Trend 3

Wireless and wireline communications component maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA is shipping production volumes of its AWT5001 and AWT5008 ProVantage power amplifiers (PAs) to Samsung Electronics for the new GALAXY Trend 3.

ProVantage solutions leverage Anadigics’ exclusive InGaP-Plus technology to provide high performance, space-saving integration and lower overall system cost. Powered by ProVantage PAs, the GALAXY Trend 3 features a 4.3-inch display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

“ProVantage solutions deliver outstanding value by providing a best-in-class combination of high power mode efficiency, linearity, and reduced system costs,” claims Jerry Miller, senior VP of Cellular Products. “We continue to help Samsung bring to market a diverse set of mobile devices that target a wide range of segments,” he adds.

Anadigics’ ProVantage power amplifiers help extend battery life by offering three selectable bias modes that optimize efficiency for low, medium and high output power levels, as well as a shutdown mode with low leakage current. The power amplifiers are also designed for use with an external switch mode power supply (SMPS), in applications using average power tracking (APT), to further increase efficiency and reduce current consumption at low and medium operating powers. ProVantage power amplifiers also provide what is claimed to be best-in-class linearity to ensure stable 3G and 4G cellular connectivity and high data throughput.

The complete family of ProVantage solutions are offered in compact 3mm x 3mm x 0.9mm packages and feature internal voltage regulation and integrated DC blocks on the RF ports to reduce requirements on valuable PCB space. RF matching is optimized for output power, efficiency, and linearity in a 50-Ohm system.
