WARREN, N.J., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a
world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today announced that the
Company is shipping production volumes of its AWL9581 front-end integrated
circuit (FEIC) for a new 802.11ac router manufactured by a leading WiFi device
provider in Japan. This high-performance gigabit WiFi router is optimized for
home networks and is expected to launch in the first quarter 2013.


The emerging IEEE 802.11ac standard supports high throughput multi-station
connectivity with speeds up to one gigabit per second. ANADIGICS' front-end
ICs provide world-class integration, efficiency, and linearity to minimize
time-to-market, improve thermal characteristics, and maximize throughput in
infrastructure applications, such as routers and access points.

"ANADIGICS' new WiFi front-end ICs are setting the industry standard for
mobile, connectivity, and infrastructure applications," said Dave Cresci, vice
president of WiFi Products at ANADIGICS. "Our devices provide the industry's
best combination of linearity and noise figure performance to achieve gigabit
transmission at greater ranges. As the adoption of 802.11ac accelerates, OEMs
and ODMs are increasingly selecting our FEICs to power next-generation WiFi
solutions that offer users real-world performance advantages."

ANADIGICS' 802.11ac FEICs leverage the Company's 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 PCB space requirements and simplifies RF front-end design.
The Company's FEICs also deliver exceptional error vector magnitude (EVM) and
noise figure performance, which enables ultra-high data throughput at extended

ANADIGICS AWL9581 FEIC Key Facts and Highlights:
