WARREN, N.J., Feb. 21, 2013

WARREN, N.J., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a
world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced the AWB7224
small-cell power amplifier (PA). The AWB7224 is optimized to deliver an
industry-leading combination of efficiency, linearity, output power and
thermal characteristics for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell base stations
operating in the 728 to 768 MHz frequency band. Manufacturers are able to
leverage this performance to develop infrastructure solutions that consume
less power, and provide higher throughput and greater coverage.

"ANADIGICS continues to expand its family of small-cell power amplifiers to
target the 3G and 4G frequency bands most used in dense population areas,"
said Glenn Eswein, director of product marketing for infrastructure products
at ANADIGICS. "The rapid increase in wireless data consumption, especially in
urban and campus settings, places tremendous pressure on existing wireless
infrastructure. Our solutions enable the design of high throughput, reliable,
and compact small-cell base stations that offer service providers an
economical and pragmatic path to expand broadband network coverage."

ANADIGICS' small-cell wireless infrastructure power amplifiers leverage the
Company's patented InGaP-Plus™ technology and advanced design architectures to
deliver world-class performance and integration. The AWB7224 offers 13%
efficiency to minimize power requirements and provide flexibility in selecting
network power systems. With exceptional linearity of -47 dBc ACPR at +27 dBm
output power, and 29 dB of RF gain, the AWB7224 enables high throughput data
rates with a wide coverage area. The complete family of small-cell power
amplifiers is available 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 requirements.
