Huawei’s Ascend P6S smartphone powered by Anadigics’ WiFi FEICs

Broadband wireless and wireline communications component maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA says that its AWL9281 front-end integrated circuit (FEIC) is enabling WiFi connectivity in Huawei’s new Ascend P6S smartphone.

“Our 802.11n and 802.11ac WiFi solutions continue to raise the bar in performance and integration, enabling higher data rates, longer battery life and improved manufacturability,” claims Jonathan Griffith, VP of WiFi Products at Anadigics. “We look forward to working closely with Huawei to bring these advantages to future WiFi-enabled devices.”

Anadigics’ family of WiFi FEICs leverages the firm’s 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, simplifying RF design and reducing time-to-market. 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. This level of integration improves manufacturability and reliability, while reducing PCB space requirements, says Anadigics. What is claimed to be best-in-class power efficiency improves thermal characteristics to support MIMO applications. The AWL9281 also delivers low current consumption, extending battery-life in mobile applications.

Anadigics claims that the AWL9281 provides outstanding error vector magnitude (EVM) and noise figure performance in the toughest modulation formats, enabling ultra-high data throughput.
