Continuing to lead the industry with the latest technology trends, ANADIGICS Inc. announced that its power amplifiers are being utilized by LG Electronics (LG) for the new VL600 USB wireless modem. The VL600, which will be offered by Verizon Wireless, adapts ANADIGICS’ ALT6713 and AWT6321 power amplifiers (PA) to boost the performance and reliability of the device.
With the ever increasing worldwide commitment to Long-Term Evolution (LTE), the VL600 is LG’s first product for Verizon’s 4G network enabling significantly higher mobile data speeds with increased network throughputs. Verizon recently announced that it will be rolling out LTE network connections in 38 cities across the United States in the coming months. The VL600 will support the 700 MHz LTE band as well as 1900 MHz/800 MHz EVDO bands for areas without the LTE coverage and is backward compatible with the existing 3G networks.
“With our extensive product portfolio, we are really excited about providing our solution to LG, one of the industry’s most innovative mobile product companies,” said Marcus Wise, Vice President of Wireless RF Products at ANADIGICS. “The ALT6713 powering the VL600 is another example of our innovative contribution towards driving the overall evolution of 4G.”
