EJL Wireless Research Adds the Nokia W-CDMA WPAB Power Amplifier to Its Design Analysis Infrastructure (DNA-I) Series of Teardown Reports

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - June 10, 2008) - EJL Wireless Research is announcing a new report within its proprietary DNA-I series, a Nokia WPAB W-CDMA 2100MHz power amplifier unit. The unit was built by Powerwave Technologies for Nokia.
