Power amplifier for WiFi infrastructure and multimedia applications
ANADIGICS has introduced the AWL5910 power amplifier (PA) optimized for WiFi infrastructure and multimedia applications, including access points, routers, media gateways, set-top boxes, and smart TVs. The new AWL5910 5 GHz power amplifier supports 802.11a/n/ac.
“We continue to set a higher standard by leveraging our RFIC design expertise, advanced technology, and manufacturing prowess to deliver industry-leading WiFi solutions with measurably superior performance and integration,” said Jonathan Griffith, vice president of WiFi Products at ANADIGICS. “The new AWL5910 provides world-class linearity, efficiency and gain to ensure high speed WiFi connectivity, all while reducing BOM costs and minimizing PCB space requirements. Leading OEMs recognize the strategic value our AWL5910 provides, and this is generating excellent design-win traction in a critical growth segment for ANADIGICS.”
Fabricated using InGaP-Plus technology ANADIGICS’ 802.11ac WiFi power amplifiers offers 31 dB of linear power gain and 1.8% EVM at 22 dBm output power to ensure stable, reliable high-throughput WiFi connectivity in the toughest modulation formats, as per ANADIGICS. The AWL5910 power amplifier eliminates the need for an external buffer amplifier. This solution also features an integrated detector that facilitates accurate power control over varying load conditions (3:1 VSWR) and extends the usable detector dynamic range from 5 dBm to 26 dBm.
This amp offers CMOS-compatible control interface to improve ease of use.
Package: 4 mm x 4 mm x 0.8 mm QFN package with RF ports internally matched to 50 Ohms and DC blocked to reduce PCB space requirements
Samples of the AWL5910 are available now for qualified programs.
