ANADIGICS, a Leading Supplier of multi-band WLAN Power Amplifiers, Extends Leadership into 802.11n Platforms
WARREN, N.J., Jan. 31 /- ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ:ANAD), a leading supplier of wireless and broadband solutions, announced today that the company is ramping production shipment of Wireless LAN (WLAN) power amplifiers (PAs) that support the upcoming 802.11n multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) standard. The company supplies several key industry players with single-band and dual-band WLAN PAs, including the AWL6153, AWL9925, AWL9929 and AWL6951 for MIMO (802.11n) applications.
With recent announcements, MIMO applications are expected to ramp quickly as access point and notebook manufacturers accelerate to production. The benefits of MIMO technology include extended range beyond that of 802.11abg and increased data rates which support simultaneous multimedia applications such as high definition video and voice over internet protocol (VoIP). For ANADIGICS, the benefits of MIMO are clear: multiple transmit chains equals multiple power amplifiers in each MIMO device.
"We are extremely pleased by the success of our highly integrated WLAN PAs for MIMO platforms," said Dr. Bami Bastani, President & CEO of ANADIGICS. "The deployment of 802.11n MIMO technology expands the WLAN market with such drivers as wireless broadband entertainment in the home. ANADIGICS' PAs and front-end ICs (FEICs) stand out as critical enablers. We are proud to be working closely with the leaders in the industry to develop the next generation of wireless connectivity solutions."
ANADIGICS is the worlds leading manufacturer of Indium Gallium Phosphide (InGaP) PAs for WLAN applications. Building on the combination of ANADIGICS' patented InGaP-Plus(TM) process technology and innovative design concepts the Company's 802.11n PAs and FEICs provide high levels of integration, as well as the linearity, efficiency, and output power required to integrate MIMO capability into a broad range of home and office multimedia appliances, such as mobile computing, CATV set-top boxes, HD televisions, and videogame console systems.
