WARREN, N.J., Sept. 7 / -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ:ANAD), a leading supplier of wireless and broadband solutions, today announced that the Company is shipping production volumes of power amplifiers (PAs) for new handset models from the world's largest handset OEM. ANADIGICS' ultra-compact AWT6314 dual-band CDMA PA enables a new handset from this tier-one OEM. The 6215i is a lightweight clamshell handset featuring two color displays, camera with flash, and speakerphone.

"We are delighted to see that our ODM strategy in penetrating tier-one OEMs is working, as we add certain CDMA handsets of the leading tier-one OEM to the growing list of mobile devices that rely on our world-class power amplifiers," said Dr. Bami Bastani, President & CEO of ANADIGICS. "Leveraging our RF design and manufacturing expertise, ANADIGICS has raised the bar in power amplifier performance, integration, and form factor. The selection of ANADIGICS' EV-DO power amplifiers for this new CDMA handset validates the performance advantages offered by our products and demonstrates our ability to serve multiple tier-one companies."
The AWT6314 dual-band CDMA PA features 39% efficiency and 50 mA of quiescent current to provide excellent talk-time. The compact 3 mm by 5 mm dual-band CDMA PAs offer a common VMODE line to simplify the control interface and support single-mode operation up to full antenna power.
