Leading semi-conductor manufacturer
) recently shipped production volumes of AWC6340 HELP
(High-Efficiency-at-Low-Power) power amplifier to Huawei for the
new Ascend P6 ultra-slim smartphone. With continuous launch of
such new products, Anadigics expects to offset the decline in its
legacy business and thereby stem the tide of losses experienced
over the past few quarters.
The new power amplifiers offer unmatched efficacy by combining
high gain and linearity for seamless transmission of high
definition (HD) videos at extended ranges with voice clarity and
unmatched high-speed data. In addition, the product also has
greater integration capabilities compared to other variants
available in the market, which in turn reduces the requirement
for other external components to save valuable printed circuit
board (PCB) space.
The power amplifier would extend smartphone's battery life by
leveraging Anadigics' patented InGaP-Plus technology that offers
higher efficiency at low and high power levels and minimizes
quiescent current. The new product further reinforces the
long-term business relationship with Huawei and extends
Anadigics' client portfolio.
Headquartered in Warren, N.J, Anadigics designs and manufactures
semiconductor solutions for the broadband wireless and wireline
communications markets. Its products include power amplifiers,
tuner integrated circuits, active splitters, line amplifiers, and
other components. Anadigics is well positioned in three
fast-growing markets: 3G, WiFi and CATV (cable television). In
addition, the company is increasing its product content in
markets where multiple power amplifiers and multiple tuner
integrated circuits are needed.
Anadigics continues to focus on three market drivers that it
believes will expand its market. These drivers include the rapid
adoption of 3G and 4G data connectivity in wireless mobile
devices, expansion of wireless and CATV infrastructure to support
higher data usage and proliferation of high performance WiFi
connectivity in mobile devices. Incremental demand for wireless
connectivity in consumer devices, including smartphones and
tablets, provide substantial growth opportunities for Anadigics.
The company's new ProEficient singleband and dual-band power
amplifiers, Multimode Multiband Power Amplifiers and WiFi should
also fuel revenue growth in the coming quarters.
Anadigics currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Other companies
in the industry worth mentioning include
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
Integrated Device Technology, Inc.
