Warren, N.J.ANADIGICS Inc. announced its AWT6224 dual-band HELP3 power amplifier (PA) module designed specifically for use in 3G dual-band handsets for EGSM network deployments worldwide, especially Europe.
The AWT6224 PA is a dual-band module that supports both IMT (UMTS2100) and EGSM (UMTS900) band operations. The AWT6224 is designed to meet requirements for WCDMA and HSPA operation with Qualcomm's latest chipsets. It incorporates the company's proprietary HELP3 technology, which reduces average current consumption by 75% and provides up to 25% increased talk time in 3G handsets. The PA also includes a built-in voltage regulator and CMOS-compatible logic controls.
The AWT6224 also reduces current consumption using ANADIGICS' HELP3 technology without the use of an external DC-DC converter, thus reducing the number of external components required for an efficient design. Like the AWT6281, the AWT6224 incorporates ANADIGICS' proprietary InGaP-Plus technology for state-of-the-art reliability, temperature stability and ruggedness. The module is manufactured using a material set consistent with the European Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS).
Pricing: $3.07 each/1,000 unit quantities.
