PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The AWU6608 HELP3TM 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 and standby time. 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
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 can be “Mode Switched” to Medium/
Low power mode for lowest quiescent current
consumption.

AWU6608
The AWU6608 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.
AWU6608 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.
Figure 15: PDF and Current
The AWU6608 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 (figure 15) highlights
the need to improve the current consumption in low
and medium power level. The AWU6608 is designed
to operate up to 17 dBm in the low power mode with
very low quiescent current. Current consumption for
AWU6608 is also plotted in the figure 5.
