Tue, 11/16/2010 - 7:22am
Responding to demand from service providers to expand the footprint of high performance wireless broadband, ANADIGICS, Inc. introduced a new power amplifier (PA) for use in WiMAX customer premises equipment (CPE) and small cell infrastructure solutions. ANADIGICS' AWB7221 is the most power efficient PA available for WiMAX CPEs, and also enables cost efficient femtocells for 3G and 4G networks. The high linear transmit power of the AWB7221 enables CPEs with a powerful uplink that supports wide, high data rate network coverage. The device's excellent power efficiency reduces the overall power consumption of a CPE or femtocell, leading to a reduction in system cooling requirements and less costly designs. The AWB7221 PA enhances network performance in key global WiMAX markets such as North America, Japan and Korea, and also supports new LTE or TD-LTE networks in the 2.30 GHz to 2.70 GHz frequency bands.
