ANADIGICS Leverages CATV Technology Edge to Deliver New High Performance 1GHz Hybrid Line Amplifiers

ANADIGICS' New Line Amplifiers Deliver Exceptional Linearity and Distortion Performance in Standard Hybrid Packaging

WARREN, NJ--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) - ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANAD) today launched a new family of 1GHz hybrid line amplifiers that leverage the Company's high performance CATV amplifier technology and manufacturing experience to provide exceptional linearity and distortion performance in an industry standard SOT115J package. ANADIGICS' new 1GHz hybrid line amplifiers deliver the additional channel spectrum required by multiple systems operators (MSOs) looking to upgrade infrastructure to support higher throughput applications, such as high definition video, VOD, and high data rate internet.

Over the past 15 years ANADIGICS has lead the line amplifier marketplace and shipped over 20 million devices in surface mount packages. ANADIGICS has utilized this industry experience to develop new 1GHz hybrid devices that deliver unmatched levels of linearity and exceptional return loss, while providing exceptionally high tolerance to electro static discharge (ESD), a feature that enhances ruggedness for outdoor operation.

Ray Aubert, Sr. Product Marketing Manager for ANADIGICS, reports, "Our new 1 GHz line amplifiers provide MSOs with valuable added spectrum. With today's compression technology, some MSOs are maxing out their spectrum as they add more standard and HD channels to their lineup. And as new bandwidth intensive, high data rate technologies, such as DOCSIS 3.0, gain momentum, spectrum expansion to 1GHz will become more prevalent."

Another trend in the CATV industry is to push the fiber content of hybrid fiber-coax networks deeper towards the subscriber terminal. MSOs now have the opportunity to provide systems that will support growing bandwidth demands by incorporating the latest 1GHz devices when performing node splits, or when installing new fiber nodes and system amplifiers in greenfield deployments.

Doug Johnson, VP of CATV Products, ANADIGICS, Inc., reports, "20 million line amplifiers shipped clearly demonstrates that ANADIGICS' has a commanding, competitive edge in line amplifier technology. We have leveraged our vast experience in GaAs MESFET processes to deliver industry leading performance. To assure field ruggedness, our parts have been tested to ESD levels which far exceed any other hybrid available today."
