Setting an improved standard for high-quality reliable data
) recently introduced a new product family of 802.11ac power
amplifiers that optimizes performance for diverse WiFi
infrastructure and multimedia applications such as access points,
routers, media gateways, set-top boxes, and smart TVs. 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. 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.
With the latest power amplifiers, Anadigics has extended the use
of MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology for WiFi
infrastructure in both commercial and residential applications to
provide channel robustness and throughput by consuming less power
and being more thermally efficient.
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 a growing number of consumer devices, including
smart phones 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
Anadigics currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Other companies in
the industry worth mentioning include
), also carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) each.
