ANADIGICS, Inc. announced that its AWT6224, AWT6321 and AWT6222 3G dual-band power amplifier (PA) modules are being used in LG Electronics' ARENA (KM900) multimedia, touch screen handsets for the European, Asian and Central/South American markets.
The LG KM900 ARENA offers a 3-inch, 262K color touchscreen display. It provides tri-band GSM and 3G support, Wi-Fi, and GPS connectivity, as well as Bluetooth and USB. Running on a new user interface dubbed as S-class, the LG ARENA will be powered by a 1000 mAh battery that is said to last for 300 hours of standby or 3 hours and 50 minutes of talk time. It also features Mobile TV and a five megapixel built-in camera, which records DVD-quality videos.
All three of the PA modules used in the LG ARENA are available in identical 3mm x 5mm packages which reduce RF board area requirements and simplify the layout.
