Setting an improved standard for high-quality reliable data transfer, Anadigics, Inc. (ANAD - Analyst Report) recently introduced a new product family of 802.11ac power amplifiers that optimizes performance for diverse WiFi infrastructure and multimedia applications such as access points, routers, media gateways, set-top boxes, and smart TVs. With continuous launch of such new products, Anadigics expects to offset the decline in its legacy business and thereby stem the tide of losses experienced over the past few quarters.
The new power amplifiers offer unmatched efficacy by combining high gain and linearity for seamless transmission of high definition (HD) videos at extended ranges. In addition, the product also has greater integration capabilities compared to other variants available in the market, which in turn reduces the requirement for other external components to save valuable printed circuit board (PCB) space.
With the latest power amplifiers, Anadigics has extended the use of MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology for WiFi infrastructure in both commercial and residential applications to provide channel robustness and throughput by consuming less power and being more thermally efficient.
Headquartered in Warren, N.J, Anadigics designs and manufactures semiconductor solutions for the broadband wireless and wireline communications markets. Its products include power amplifiers, tuner integrated circuits, active splitters, line amplifiers, and other components. Anadigics is well positioned in three fast-growing markets: 3G, WiFi and CATV (cable television). In addition, the company is increasing its product content in markets, where multiple power amplifiers and multiple tuner integrated circuits are needed.
Anadigics continues to focus on three market drivers that it believes will expand its market. These drivers include the rapid adoption of 3G and 4G data connectivity in wireless mobile devices, expansion of wireless and CATV infrastructure to support higher data usage and proliferation of high performance WiFi connectivity in mobile devices. Incremental demand for wireless connectivity in a growing number of consumer devices, including smart phones and tablets, provide substantial growth opportunities for Anadigics. The company’s new ProEficient singleband and dual-band power amplifiers, Multimode Multiband Power Amplifiers and WiFi should also fuel revenue growth in the coming quarters.
Anadigics currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Other companies in the industry worth mentioning include Atmel Corporation (ATML - Analyst Report), CEVA Inc. (CEVA - Snapshot Report), and FormFactor Inc. (FORM - Analyst Report), also carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) each.
