Photo Release -- ANADIGICS Expands Small-Cell Power Amplifier Family

ANADIGICS' New Power Amplifiers Offer Industry-Leading Combination of
Efficiency, Linearity, Output Power, and Thermal Performance for WCDMA, HSPA,
and LTE Small-Cell Base Stations

WARREN, N.J., July 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD),
a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced two new
power amplifiers (PAs) optimized for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell
applications, including picocells, enterprise-class femtocells, and
high-performance customer premises equipment (CPE). The AWB7122 and AWB7124
operate in the 1805 MHz to 1880 MHz and 728 MHz to 768 MHz frequency band,
respectively, delivering exceptional integration and performance to help
manufacturers develop compact wireless infrastructure solutions that consume
less power and provide higher throughput with greater coverage.

"Carriers are facing mounting pressure to expand network capacity as wireless
data consumption continues to increase rapidly," said Glenn Eswein, director
of product marketing for Infrastructure Products at ANADIGICS. "By offering a
broad portfolio of high-performance ¼-Watt and ½-Watt linear power amplifiers
optimized for the most widely used 3G and 4G frequency bands, ANADIGICS
enables wireless network equipment manufacturers to meet this infrastructure
challenge. These PAs provide distinct design, performance and cost advantages
for new infrastructure solutions that must deliver higher data throughput,
support wider coverage areas, and consume less power."

ANADIGICS' complete family of small-cell wireless infrastructure power
amplifiers leverage the Company's unique InGaP-Plus™ technology and innovative
design architectures to deliver industry-leading performance and integration.
The AWB7122 and AWB7124 power amplifiers provide 16% and 14.5% efficiency,
respectively, to minimize power consumption and offer greater flexibility in
the choice of network power sources. Both the AWB7122 and AWB7124 deliver
exceptional linearity of -47 dBc ACPR at +24.5 dBm output power and 30 dB of
RF gain to provide higher data rates with a greater 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.
