By Joe Cozzarelli, ANADIGICS As mobile carriers and network operators transition to 4G service, they are faced with several challenges, including the massive amount of smartphones available in the market, the volume of data traffic per phone that is rising exponentially, and all the steps required to deploy and upgrade their network infrastructures.
After three years of deliberation, the IEEE802.16m air interface definition will be ready for prime time in the next few months. This critical step toward creating true 4G cellular technology based on WiMAX is important enough to earn compliant products a new name: WiMAX 2. Further proof came last month, when an impressive subset of the WiMAX community created the WiMAX 2 Collaboration Initiative to "improve the economics of mobile broadband" and "to create a better value chain for service providers.
CDMA power amplifier FO Anadigics, Inc. has released the latest version of its highly successful dual-band CDMA power amplifiers (PAs) the AWC6323 designed for today's most advanced CDMA handsets and data cards for the world's leading wireless providers. For the first time, high performance directional couplers have been integrated into a dual band CDMA PA in the 3 X 5 X 1 (mm) footprint.
