Anadigics (Warren, NJ) has introduced the AWB7222 power amplifier (PA) optimized for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell applications. The new AWB7222 operates in the 1805 MHz to 1880 MHz frequency band delivering an industry-leading combination of output power, linearity, power-added efficiency and thermal characteristics. This level of performance combined with exceptional integration enables manufacturers to develop compact wireless infrastructure solutions that consume less power and provide higher throughput with greater coverage. Features include:
- +27 dBm linear output power for ¼-Watt small-cell applications, including picocells, enterprise-class femtocells, and high-performance customer premises equipment (CPE).
- Linearity of -47 dBc ACPR at +27 dBm output power and 31 dB of RF gain.
- 13% efficiency to minimize power consumption and offer greater flexibility in the choice of network power sources.
- A compact, low profile 7 mm x 7 mm x 1.3 mm surface mount package with integrated RF matching to reduce PCB space requirements.
