WARREN, N.J., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF)
solutions, today introduced four new front-end integrated circuits (FEICs) for
802.11n and 802.11ac WiFi applications. The Company's FEICs provide an
industry-leading combination of integration, efficiency, and linearity to
minimize time-to-market, increase battery-life, and maximize throughput for
mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, netbooks, notebooks, and gaming
systems. These solutions have been selected by multiple leading reference
design companies and are gaining OEM traction worldwide.

"ANADIGICS is raising the bar in WiFi RF front-end integration and
performance," said Dave Cresci, vice president of WiFi Products at ANADIGICS.
"By combining our high performance PA, LNA, and RF switch in a compact,
low-profile package, we are enabling manufacturers to develop the
next-generation of mobile devices with extended battery-life and greater
connectivity speeds. The advantages of our new FEICs have been validated by
multiple wins on major WiFi reference designs and we expect to start
high-volume production shipments in the first quarter of 2013."

The new family of WiFi FEICs utilize ANADIGICS' exclusive InGaP-Plus™
technology and patented design architectures to combine a power amplifier
(PA), low-noise amplifier (LNA), and RF switch on a single die. This level of
integration reduces space requirements and simplifies RF front-end design.
ANADIGICS' WiFi FEICs provide exceptional error vector magnitude (EVM) and
noise figure performance, which enables ultra-high data throughput and
connectivity over greater range. These solutions also deliver outstanding
efficiency with low current consumption to conserve valuable battery-life in
mobile applications.
