ANADIGICS' AWT6241 Powers Samsung's New S5630C Handset for China Mobile's 3G Network

WARREN, NJ--(Marketwire - November 2, 2009) - ANADIGICS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANAD), today announced that its AWT6241 WCDMA power amplifier (PA) is powering Samsung's new 3G handset developed for use on China Mobile's new 3G TD-SCDMA network. Samsung's S5630C handset, which includes an innovative touchscreen handwriting feature for Chinese character input, leverages ANADIGICS' HELP3™ technology to deliver longer talk times and greater 3G functionality without compromising battery performance.

"China is a major focus for ANADIGICS," reports Michael Canonico, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at ANADIGICS, Inc., "and we are honored to be selected by Samsung for a handset supporting China Mobile's new 3G TD-SCDMA network. Our steadfast commitment to RF expertise and innovation ensures that ANADIGICS is able to consistently deliver high performance devices for use around the world, underscoring our position as the leader in power amplifier technology."

Samsung's S5630C 3G handset is specifically designed for the Chinese market following the issuance of 3G licenses in January of this year. The sleek Samsung S5630C design features a trendy 'China Red' casing on the back of the black device, and combines fashion with function by supporting MS Exchange Active Sync, Push Mail and MS Office. In addition, the S5630C also features a 2.8 inch QVGA screen with 'TouchWiz' functionality for entering Chinese characters by hand, and also supports 802.11b/g WiFi connectivity.

Prasanth Perugupalli, WCDMA/CDMA Product Line Director at ANADIGICS, Inc., comments, "The AWT6241 maximizes battery lifetime while delivering optimal 3G performance for handset designs. The device incorporates ANADIGICS' HELP3™ technology to provide low power consumption without the need for an external voltage regulator or DC/DC converter. Our HELP3™ technology also offers two operating modes for optimum efficiency at high and medium/low power output levels with a single mode input, and a shutdown mode with extremely low leakage current."
