ANADIGICS Enables Shanghai Qianjin Electronics' CATV Infrastructure Products

ANADIGICS' Hybrid Line Amplifiers Provide Exceptional Performance and Reliability for Shanghai Qianjin Electronics' Optical Receivers

WARREN, NJ--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) and mixed signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that the Company is shipping production volumes of its CATV hybrid line amplifiers to Shanghai Qianjin Electronics. These industry-leading amplifiers are used in Shanghai Qianjin Electronics' NOR860T-2 two-way and NOR860T-4 four-way optical receivers, which are optimized for delivering analog and digital video, as well as high-speed data services, over advanced hybrid fiber / coax (HFC) networks.

"Working closely with ANADIGICS, we have developed our optical receiver products for both established and emerging CATV markets," said Wang Guang Hai, President at Shanghai Qianjin Electronics. "We made the decision to select ANADIGICS as a key supplier for our optical node products due to its hybrid line amplifier performance and reliability advantages, as well as exceptional customer support." 

"We are extremely pleased that Shanghai Qianjin Electronics has selected ANADIGICS' hybrid line amplifiers for its optical receiver product line," said Michael Canonico, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at ANADIGICS. "Our hybrid line amplifiers lead the industry in ruggedness and reliability, helping service providers to minimize costly field repairs. We look forward to working closely with Shanghai Qianjin Electronics on the design of future CATV infrastructure products." 

A report published by Strategy Analytics, in November 2010, forecasts that hybrid amplifier blocks will show steady growth through 2014. The report details that the fastest growing CATV infrastructure segment will be amplifiers for high-definition capable networks, with a forecasted compounded average annual growth rate (CAAGR) of nearly 43% from 2009 to 2014.

"With high-definition television, video on demand, and high data rate internet, CATV systems are increasingly operating in a fully-loaded spectrum," said Joseph Cozzarelli, Senior Director of Broadband RF Products at ANADIGICS. "ANADIGICS' hybrid line amplifiers offer industry-leading linearity and exceptionally low noise figures to provide minimum signal degradation. This level of performance coupled with the extreme ruggedness of our hybrid line amplifiers, ensures the highest quality video delivery while minimizing costly downtime and service calls from cable plant equipment failures."
