WARREN, N.J., May 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ANADIGICS, Inc. today announced that it began shipping production volumes of its ANADIGICS AWT6277 WCDMA power amplifier (PA) modules to LG Electronics for use in the new LG Viewty (LG-KU990), a 5.0 mega pixel professional level camera phone currently available in the UK.

The LG Viewty raises the bar for camera phones, with features including 5.0 mega pixel resolution, auto and manual focus, image stabilization and a handwriting editing function. The video camera on this candy bar form handset can also take video at up to 120 frames per second. With just one click, users can upload a recorded video directly to Google's YouTube and share it with the world. The 3.0 inch full touch screen enables users to enjoy high quality DivX video files in wide screen format.

"We are very pleased that LG Electronics has chosen our AWT6277 PA module for their cutting-edge LG Viewty 3G camera phone," said Dr. Bami Bastani, President & CEO of ANADIGICS. "Our technologically advanced compact dual-band WCDMA power amplifier offers an industry-leading combination of high performance, small footprint, and low profile, making it possible for this mobile device to do much more than make a phone call."

Specifically designed to meet the needs of feature rich mobile handsets, the AWT6277 HELP(TM) WCDMA PA includes ANADIGICS' HELP(TM) technology which reduces WCDMA average power consumption by 50%. Combined with low leakage current in shutdown mode, the AWT6277 PA delivers longer battery life and additional talk-time-two key metrics for mobile handset designers.

The self-contained 4 mm x 4 mm x 1.1 mm surface-mount PA incorporates matching networks optimized for output power, efficiency, and linearity in a 50 ohm system, which reduces device footprint and the need for external components, making it extremely well suited for super-thin designs. AWT6277 HELP(TM) PA is enabled by ANADIGICS' advanced patented InGaP-Plus(TM) HBT technology, which combines InGaP HBT & pHEMT devices on the same die and delivers state-of-the-art performance, reliability, temperature stability, and ruggedness.

The ANADIGICS AWT6277 PA is available now.
