ANADIGICS' small-cell wireless infrastructure power amplifiers leverage the
Company's patented InGaP-Plus™ technology and unique design architectures to
deliver best-in-class efficiency, linearity and thermal characteristics. This
level of performance enables manufacturers to develop infrastructure solutions
that consume less power, provide higher throughput and greater coverage, and
are more thermally efficient.

"Mobile data use is rapidly rising as users transition from feature phones to
smartphones, and attachment rates of 3G / 4G functionality to tablets,
notebooks, and gaming devices increase," said Glenn Eswein, director of
product marketing for infrastructure products at ANADIGICS. "Cost effective,
high performance small-cell base stations, such as picocells and femtocells,
are designed to help carriers meet this growing demand for wireless data,
especially in dense geographic locations and campus environments. ANADIGICS'
small-cell power amplifiers are optimized for these applications by enabling
manufacturers to develop wireless infrastructure solutions with exceptional
throughput and range to deliver a world-class user experience."

ANADIGICS' AWB7129 small-cell power amplifier is optimized for WCDMA, HSPA,
and LTE small-cell base stations operating in the 925 MHz to 960 MHz frequency
band. The power amplifier delivers 15% efficiency to minimize power
requirements. With exceptional linearity of -47 dBc ACPR @ +/- 10 MHz offset,
+24.5 dBm linear output power, and 30 dB gain, the AWB7129 is optimized to
provide high throughput data rates with a wide coverage area. The AWB7129
small-cell PA is provided in a compact, low profile 7 mm x 7 mm x 1.3 mm
surface mount package with integrated RF matching to reduce PCB space
