Samsung Selects ANADIGICS WiFi Solutions for GALAXY Tab Pro
ANADIGICS, Inc., a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today announced that the Company’s AWL9293 and AWL9581 802.11ac front-end integrated circuits (FEICs) are enabling WiFi connectivity in the new GALAXY Tab Pro by Samsung Electronics. This feature-rich tablet includes a 10.1-inch WQXGA resolution display, Exynos® 5 Octa processor, 8 megapixel camera and Android® 4.4 KitKat operating system. The new GALAXY Tab Pro offers a virtual keyboard that mimics a physical keyboard, leveraging haptic feedback and hotkeys to offer users a more accurate and familiar typing experience.
“We are very pleased to power both the 2.4 and 5 GHz 802.11ac WiFi bands in the new GALAXY Tab Pro,” said Jonathan Griffith, vice president of WiFi Products at ANADIGICS. “Our FEICs deliver differentiated performance and integration to help reduce time-to-market, extend battery life and increase data rates. By collaborating with Samsung, we continue to leverage these advantages in the latest generation of tablets to deliver an enhanced user experience.”
ANADIGICS’ AWL9293 2.4 GHz and AWL9581 5 GHz FEICs leverage the Company’s patented InGaP-Plus technology and uniquely designed architectures to combine a high-performance power amplifier (PA), low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass option, and RF switch on a single die. This level of integration greatly improves manufacturability and reliability, while reducing PCB space requirements. These FEICs also deliver exceptionally low current consumption, significantly extending battery-life in mobile applications. The complete family of 802.11ac FEICs provides outstanding error vector magnitude (EVM) and noise figure performance, which enables ultra-high data throughput.
ANADIGICS 802.11ac WiFi FEIC Family Key Facts and Highlights:
