ProEficient WCDMA / LTE power amplifier (PA) product family has been optimized for the next generation of 4G devices, by delivering world-class efficiency across all power levels. These products combine greater talk time in low-power mode with longer data application use in high-power mode. The result is an enhanced overall user experience and extended battery life across all operating conditions of modern smartphone and tablet devices, as well as lower overall system cost.
The power amplifiers use the company’s exclusive InGaP-Plus technology to achieve efficiency at high and low power modes in order to maximize 4G battery-life without the use of a dc-dc converter. These power amplifiers are also optimized for use with average power tracking (APT) to further increase efficiency and reduce current consumption at medium and low operating powers. In addition to efficiency, the power amplifiers deliver linearity to ensure a stable connection for clear voice and high-speed data.
