PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The AWU6601 HELP3 PA is a 3rd generation
WCDMA product for UMTS handsets. This PA
incorporates ANADIGICS’ HELP3TM technology to
provide low power consumption without the need
for an external voltage regulator. A “daisy chainable”
directional coupler is integrated in the module thus
eliminating the need of external couplers. The
device is manufactured on an advanced InGaP HBT
MMIC technology offering state-of-the-art reliability,
temperature stability, and ruggedness. There are two
selectable bias modes that optimize efficiency for
different output power levels, and a shutdown mode
with low leakage current, which increases handset talk

APPLICATION INFORMATION
To ensure proper performance, refer to all related
Application Notes on the ANADIGICS web site:
http://www.anadigics.com
Shutdown Mode
The power amplifier may be placed in a shutdown
mode by applying logic low levels (see Operating
Ranges table) to the VENABLE and VMODE1 voltages.
Bias Modes
The power amplifier may be placed in either a Low Bias
mode or a High Bias mode by applying the appropriate
logic level (see Operating Ranges table) to VMODE1.
The Bias Control table lists the recommended modes
of operation for various applications. VMODE2 is not
necessary for this PA.
Two operating modes are available to optimize
current consumption. High Bias/High Power operating
mode is for POUT levels > 16 dBm. At around 17 dBm
output power, the PA should be “Mode Switched” to
Medium/Low power mode for lowest quiescent current
consumption.

AWU6601
The AWU6601 power amplifier module is based on
ANADIGICS proprietary HELP3™ technology. The
PA is designed to operate up to 17 dBm in the low
power mode, thus eliminating the need for three gain
state, while still maintaining low quiescent current
and high efficiency in low and medium power levels.
The PA can still be operated as 3 gain state device
if the customer chooses to. The directional “daisy
chainable” coupler is integrated within the PA module,
therefore there is no need for external couplers.
AWU6601 requires only two calibration sweeps for
system calibration, thus saving calibration time.
Figure 16 shows one application example on mobile
board. C1 and C2 are RF bypass caps and should
be placed nearby pin 1 and pin 10. Bypass caps
C9 and C5 may not be needed. Also a “T” matching
topology is recommended at PA RFIN and RFOUT
ports to provide matching between input TX Filter and
Duplexer / Isolator.
The AWU6601 has an integrated voltage regulator,
which eliminates the need for an external constant
voltage source. The PA is turn on/off is controlled
by VEN pin. A single VMODE control logic (VMODE1) is
needed to operate this device.

The DG09 power distribution (fig 15) highlights the
need to improve the current consumption in low and
medium power level. The AWU6601 is designed to
operate up to 17 dBm in the low power mode with
very low quiescent current. Current consumption for
AWU6601 is also plotted in the figure 5.
