WiMAX power amplifiers (PAs) from ANADIGICS have been specified by Beceem Communications for their latest model BCS200 chipset reference designs. The reference designs support all features of the Mobile WiMAX Wave 2 profile. The ANADIGICS models AWM6423 and AWM6432 WiMAX PA modules integrate step attenuators and output-power detectors along with the InGaP amplifier circuitry and support error-vector-magnitude (EVM) performance of 4 percent for 16-state quadrature-amplitude-modulation (16QAM) signals or 2.5 percent for 64QAM signals. According to Ron Michels, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of Broadband Products at ANADIGICS, "Beceem is making the first step into 4G for WiMAX products, and we are delighted to be a part of the BCS200 chipset reference designs."
