PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The ALT6712 HELP4TM PA is a 4th generation HELPTM
product for LTE devices operating in UMTS 700 MHz
Bands 12 and 17. This PA incorporates ANADIGICS’
HELP4TM technology to deliver exceptional efficiency
at low power levels and low quiescent current without
the need for external voltage regulators or converters.
The device is manufactured using advanced InGaPPlus TM HBT technology offering state-of-the-art
reliability, temperature stability, and ruggedness.
Three selectable bias modes that optimize efficiency
for different output power levels and a shutdown
mode with low leakage current increase handset
talk and standby time. A “daisy chainable” directional
coupler is integrated in the module, thus eliminating
the need of an external coupler. The self-contained 3 mm x 3 mm x 1 mm surface mount package
incorporates matching networks optimized for output
power, efficiency, and linearity in a 50 Ω system.

APPLICATION INFORMATION
To ensure proper performance, refer to all related
Application Notes on the ANADIGICS web site:
http://www.anadigics.com
to the VMODE pins. The Bias Control table below lists
the recommended modes of operation for various
applications.
Shutdown Mode
The power amplifier may be placed in a shutdown mode
by applying logic low levels (see Operating Ranges
table) to the VEN, VMODE1 and VMODE2 voltages.
Three operating modes are recommended to optimize
current consumption. High Bias/High Power operating
mode is for POUT levels > 16 dBm. At ~16 dBm - 6 dBm,
the PA could be switched to Medium Power Mode. For
POUT levels < ~6 dBm, the PA could be switched to Low
Power Mode for extremely low current consumption.
Bias Modes
The power amplifier may be placed in either Low,
Medium or High Bias modes by applying the
appropriate logic level (see Operating Ranges table)
