Anadigics Inc. has received production orders for the AWM6430 Indium Gallium Phosphide (InGaP) heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) 3.5GHz class AB power amplifier (PA) for fixed point worldwide interoperability used in microwave access (WiMAX) applications. The IEEE 802.16e WiMAX wireless technology standard provides a framework for broadband wireless mobility for use in applications such as notebook computers.

Ron Michels, VP of broadband products at Anadigics, said, "Our class AB WiMAX power amplifiers provide superior efficiency compared with class A power amplifiers and offer the industry's best level of linearity to customers. The selection of Anadigics' AWM6430 by WiMAX manufacturers validates the performance advantages offered by our products and positions Anadigics to capture significant share of the fixed-point and mobile WiMAX market."

The 4.5-by-4.5mm AWM6430 WiMAX PA module provides an integrated step attenuator and output power detector, minimizing external component count, PCB space requirements, and development costs for new designs.
