ANADIGICS, Inc. (ANAD - Analyst Report) recently announced that it has secured a deal from Samsung Electronics to supply dual-band ProEficient-Plus power amplifiers (PAs) for multiple electronic devices, including the new Galaxy S 4 Mini. The amplifiers will enhance the battery life of the devices and are expected to deliver the industry’s highest efficiency across all power levels.  

The ProEficient-Plus PAs maximize the battery life in 3G mobile devices by delivering efficiency in both low- and high-power modes. During low-power mode, the amplifiers provide greater talk time, while high-power mode facilitates longer usage of applications in mobile devices.

Moreover, the PAs are provided in well-integrated dual band-width configurations which minimize radio frequency (RF) space requirements. The amplifiers in turn provide greater design flexibility. Anadigics’ amplifiers have thus helped Samsung to launch a more compact, 4.3-inch Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone with an 8 megapixel camera, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

Earlier in Jun 2013, Anadigics had also secured a deal from Samsung to ship WiFi front-end integrated circuit (FEICs) for its new Galaxy Tab 3 family. This has helped Samsung save space and maximize battery life for its Galaxy Tab 7.0, 8.0, and 10.1 inch versions.

The series of contract wins by Samsung has further strengthened Anadigics’ long-standing relationship with Samsung. Anadigics has evidently played an important role in the success story of Samsung Galaxy-S series and has helped it in launching sleek, ultra-thin smartphones that offer exceptional battery life.

Headquartered in NJ, Anadigics designs and manufactures innovative RF solutions for the booming cellular, WiFi, and infrastructure markets. It currently carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).

Better-positioned stocks within the semi-conductor industry worth considering include Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDTI - Snapshot Report) and OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (OVTI - Analyst Report), each holding a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
