Huawei’s Ascend P7 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 P7 smartphone.

The ultra-slim, feature-rich smartphone measures only 6.5mm in depth while having a 5.0-inch display, 1.8GHz quad-core processor, 13 megapixel camera, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system, forming Huawei’s flagship smartphone.

“We are proud to support Huawei through each successive generation of flagship mobile devices, including the new, exciting Ascend P7,” says Jonathan Griffith, VP of WiFi products.

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.

The firm claims that the AWL9281 FEIC provides outstanding error vector magnitude (EVM) and noise figure performance in the toughest modulation formats, enabling ultra-high data throughput. The AWL9281 also delivers exceptionally low current consumption, extending battery life in mobile applications.
