Photo Release -- ANADIGICS Expands DOCSIS 3.1 Line Amplifier Family

New Line Amplifiers, Optimized for 1.2 GHz DOCSIS 3.1 Systems, Provide
Exceptional Output Power, Gain and Linearity to Enable Advanced Digital

ATLANTA, Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD) (the
"Company"), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today announced
that the Company has expanded its surface mount line amplifier family for data
over cable service interface specification (DOCSIS) system standard version
3.1. The Company's new 12 V and 24 V line amplifiers deliver exceptional
linearity and output power, enabling CATV service providers to increase system
bandwidth in support of DOCSIS 3.1. By extending frequencies to 1.2 GHz,
DOCSIS 3.1 enables higher data speeds as well as additional high-definition
television (HDTV) and video on demand (VOD) services.

"ANADIGICS' CATV infrastructure portfolio continues to set the performance and
reliability standard," said Tim Laverick, vice president of Infrastructure
Products at ANADIGICS. "Our new DOCSIS 3.1 surface mount line amplifiers
deliver industry-leading linearity and output power across an expanded
frequency range to support the newest generation of 1.2 GHz downstream
equipment. With a heritage of world-class reliability and proven process
technologies, we are helping MSOs confidently upgrade their network hardware
as they roll out exciting new services made possible by DOCSIS 3.1."

The new ACA1210, ACA1212, ACA1216, ACA2431, ACA2449, and ACA2461 line
amplifiers join the previously launched ACA2429 GaN power doubler in providing
high signal fidelity over extended frequencies up to 1.2 GHz. These surface
mount solutions offer outstanding bit error rate (BER), composite triple beat
(CTB), composite second order (CSO), cross modulation and
carrier-to-intermodulation noise (CIN) characteristics for optimal performance
in a fully-loaded spectrum. ANADIGICS' DOCSIS 3.1 line amplifier family
leverages the Company's proven high linearity GaAs MESFET process for
world-class reliability along with GaN HEMT technology for high output power
and optimum power efficiency.
