ANADIGICS Lights Up Samsung's Thin Neon 3G Handset


WARREN, N.J., May 22 -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ:ANAD) today announced that they are shipping production volumes of 3G EVDO power amplifiers (PAs) to Samsung Electronics for its SCH-u540 mid-range multimedia phone. The clamshell SCH-u540 is available through Verizon Wireless, offering VCAST Services, including VCAST Video, VCAST Music and VZ Navigator.

The SCH-u540 delivers many multimedia features available to wireless phone users today, including a 1.3 mega pixel camera with a digital zoom and Nightshot option. It offers fantastic viewing capabilities on a large 2.1" screen and features two speakers for an optimal music experience in stereo. The thin design of the SCH-u540 also features a speakerphone, Bluetooth® wireless technology, touch sensitive music controls, instant messaging and mobile e-mail.

"We are very pleased with our continuing relationship with Samsung Electronics and that we are designed into their SCH-u540 3G handset," said Dr. Bami Bastani, President & CEO of ANADIGICS. "ANADIGICS' leading line of wireless CDMA EVDO HELP(TM) products and our strategic relationships with tier-one manufacturers like Samsung position us to be a dominant player in the advanced multimedia 3G handset market."

Samsung Electronics' SCH-u540 uses both the AWT6307 and AWT6308 EVDO HELP2(TM) PAs for US cellular band and US PCS band operation, respectively. ANADIGICS' HELP2(TM) PAs provide exceptional efficiency and low quiescent current, thereby reducing power consumption and increasing talk-time. The highly integrated 3 mm by 3 mm HELP2(TM) PAs reduce PCB space requirements by up to 50% while maintaining pin-to-pin compatibility with existing 4 mm by 4 mm amplifiers. These power amplifier modules are manufactured using a material set consistent with the European Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS).

The ANADIGICS AWT6307 and AWT6308 PAs are available now.
