Warren, NJ -- ANADIGICS, Inc. today announced that the Company's WiMAX
power amplifiers (PAs) have been specified by Beceem Communications for
their BCS200 chipset reference designs. ANADIGICS' AWM6423 and AWM6432
PAs provide highly linear, high-efficiency solutions for 2.5 and 3.5 GHz
mobile applications. Beceem's BSC200 baseband and RF chipset supports
all features of the Mobile WiMAX Wave 2 Profile. Beceem's inclusion of
ANADIGICS PAs results in complete reference designs that enable WiMAX
equipment manufacturers to quickly introduce high performance products
for the growing market.
|"Mobile WiMAX radios
require high linearity for robust links and low power consumption for
extended battery life," said David Patterson, Vice President of
Marketing at Beceem. "The operating efficiencies of ANADIGICS' WiMAX
power amplifiers, in conjunction with the reduced power consumption
achieved by Beceem's BCS200 Wave 2 chipset with smart antenna
technology, provide compelling solutions for mobile WiMAX terminals."
"ANADIGICS WiMAX power amplifiers provide high linearity, high
efficiency and advanced functional integration to support high
performance solutions for the world's emerging broadband wireless
systems," said Ron Michels, Senior Vice President and General Manager of
Broadband Products at ANADIGICS. "Beceem is making the first step into
4G for WiMAX products, and we are delighted to be a part of the BCS200
chipset reference designs. We look forward to continued cooperation with
Beceem on future WiMAX designs."
ANADIGICS' highly integrated AWM6423 and AWM6432 WiMAX PA modules
provide an integrated step attenuator and output power detector and
fully matched RF ports, minimizing external component count, PCB space
requirements, and development costs. The PAs operate with exceptional
power efficiencies at output power levels required for mobile
transmission and reception, supporting an error vector magnitude (EVM)
of 4% for 16-QAM signals or 2.5% for 64-QAM signals.
ANADIGICS' WiMAX PAs are based on ANADIGICS' patented InGaP-Plus(TM)
process technology which supports enhanced feature integration and
provides superior performance and reliability. ANADIGICS' WiMAX PAs are
fully compatible with the IEEE 802.16 and ETSI EN301-021 standards, and
are manufactured using a materials set consistent with the European
Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive.
