Samsung selects Anadigics’ front-end ICs for WiFi connectivity in GALAXY Tab Pro

Broadband wireless and wireline communications component maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA says that its AWL9293 and AWL9581 802.11ac front-end integrated circuits (FEICs) are enabling WiFi connectivity in Samsung Electronics’ new GALAXY Tab Pro, powering both the 2.4 and 5GHz 802.11ac WiFi bands.

“Our FEICs deliver differentiated performance and integration to help reduce time-to-market, extend battery life and increase data rates,” says Jonathan Griffith, VP of WiFi Products at Anadigics. “By collaborating with Samsung, we continue to leverage these advantages in the latest generation of tablets.”

Anadigics’ AWL9293 2.4GHz and AWL9581 5GHz FEICs leverage 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 Tx/Rx RF switch 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 greatly improves manufacturability and reliability, while reducing PCB space requirements, says Anadigics. The FEICs also deliver low current consumption, extending battery-life in mobile applications. What is claimed to be best-in-class power efficiency improves thermal characteristics to support MIMO applications.

Anadigics claims that its complete family of 802.11ac FEICs provides outstanding error vector magnitude (EVM) and noise figure performance in the toughest 802.11ac modulation formats, enabling ultra-high data throughput.
