ANADIGICS has introduced six new power amplifiers (PAs) for TD-LTE (Time-Division Long-Term Evolution) small-cell applications. These are AWB7031, AWB7032, AWB7228, AWB7231, AWB7232 and AWB7239 TD-LTE power amplifiers and optimized for small-cell applications including picocells, femtocells and customer premises equipment (CPE).
As femto cells become more ubiquitous it is essential to provide seamless mobility between macro and femto cells to reap the full benefits and improve user experience. Qualcomm Research's active hand-in for UMTS small cell solution offers a seamless connection in addition to several other benefits.
