ANADIGICS Expands 4G Power Amplifier Portfolio With New Band 1 Femtocell Module

BARCELONA, SPAIN and WARREN, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 16, 2009 -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANAD), today announced its new AWB7226 power amplifier (PA) module designed for use in the 2.1-2.7 GHz frequency spectrum. ANADIGICS' new AWB7226 PA is a highly isolated, fully matched, multi-chip module (MCM) designed and engineered specifically for use in femtocell and customer premises equipment (CPE) that operate in UMTS Band 1.

Femtocells solve the problem of weak wireless broadband signals in homes and offices by allowing mobile devices to connect to their carrier's network through a high-speed Internet link.

"The AWB7226 enables connectivity in the most popular 3G band worldwide," reports Joe Cozzarelli, Director, Wireless Infrastructure and 4G Products at ANADIGICS. "Its balanced design delivers exceptional linearity, high power, optimized performance and integrated functionality to simplify femtocell designs and assure reliable, high speed connectivity."

"The femtocell market represents an exciting, new market opportunity for ANADIGICS' high performance power amplifiers," adds Dr. Ali Khatibzadeh, Sr. Vice President and General Manager, Wireless at ANADIGICS. "The tough macro-economic conditions are putting pressure on capital expenditure by major wireless operators making Femtocells a very attractive, low-cost path to increased capacity and data ARPU. Our technology and product differentiation position ANADIGICS well to gain share in this emerging market."

The AWB7226 is a 4.2 volt module designed to operate in UMTS Band 1 downlink frequencies between 2.11 - 2.17GHz. It has been designed to handle WCDMA, HSPA and LTE waveforms with a P1dB of 34dBm and 30dB of gain. With a WCDMA waveform, the part delivers 25.5dBm of rated power.

The AWB7226 is manufactured using ANADIGICS' proprietary InGaP-Plus™ technology that provides state-of-the-art reliability, temperature stability, and ruggedness. Its self-contained 7mm x 7mm x 1mm surface mount package incorporates matching networks optimized for output power, efficiency and linearity in a 50 ohm system.

Samples of the AWB7226 will be available in March 2009.
