Sep 11, 2007 (08:09 AM EDT)


WARREN, N.J., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ANADIGICS, Inc. , announced today that the company is shipping production volumes of its AWL6951 Wireless LAN(WLAN) power amplifier(PA) module in support of the upcoming 802.11n multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) standard to NXP Semiconductor for their WLAN module solution, MRX2000. The MRX2000, enables higher throughput of rich content for quality-critical applications, allowing for faster, more powerful wireless connectivity between everyday multimedia devices.

"ANADIGICS is very pleased with the success our highly integrated WLAN PAs for MIMO platforms," said Ron Michels, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Broadband Products at ANADIGICS. "We value our close relationships with industry leaders, such as NXP, in developing next-generation wireless connectivity solutions."

ANADIGICS' AWL6951 dual-band power amplifier is a high performance InGaP HBT power amplifier module designed for transmit applications in the 2.4-2.5 GHz and 4.9-5.9 GHz band. Matched to 50 ohm at all RF inputs and outputs, the part requires no additional RF matching components off-chip, making the AWL6951 the world's simplest dual band PA module implementation available. The PA exhibits unparalleled linearity and efficiency for IEEE 802.11g, 802.11b and 802.11a WLAN systems under the toughest signal configurations within these standards.

ANADIGICS is the world's 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.
