 Company's WCDMA Power Amplifier Nominated for Best Device Award by One of

                        China's Top Trade Magazines



    WARREN, N.J., Aug. 13 /EMWPresswire/ -- ANADIGICS, Inc.

(Nasdaq: ANAD) today announced its HELP3(TM) WCDMA dual-band power

amplifier (PA), AWT6221, has been nominated for an EDN China Innovation

Award. ANADIGICS' AWT6221 is competing for the "Best Device Award" in the

Communication IC category.



    EDN Innovation Award is one of the most prestigious awards in

California's Silicon Valley, with an 18 year history to recognize

achievements in the design of IC and related products. It was introduced to

China in 2005 to encourage adoption of innovated IC products, and is now

one the most influential awards in China's electronics engineering

industry. EDN China Innovation Award finalists will be selected by a jury

of industry peers, comprised of technical experts from the industry,

university and institutes, and EDN China editors. Once the finalist list is

complete, EDN China readers can log online to cast their vote for final

award winners.



    The AWT6221 dramatically reduces average current consumption by 75%,

which translates to up to 25% increase in talk-time. ANADIGICS' HELP3(TM)

PAs like AWT6221 use the company's exclusive InGaP-Plus(TM) technology,

which integrates bipolar and field-effect transistor (FET) devices on the

same InGaP GaAs die. Through selectable bias modes, the HELP3(TM) PAs

achieve optimal efficiency across the low-range and mid-range output power

levels. The intelligent bias circuit of AWT6221 reduces current consumption

to 8mA at low power levels -- the world's best. Through the integration of

two independent PA chains, the tiny AWT6221 delivers uncompromised

performance in both frequency bands and conserves printed-circuit board

area.



    "ANADIGICS is extremely excited to be nominated by industry peers for

such a prestigious honor awarded by EDN China," said Ali Khatibzadeh,

Ph.D., Senior Vice President and General Manager of Wireless Products,

ANADIGICS, Inc. "ANADIGICS' mission has always been to help lead the

semiconductor market into the next generation with innovative wireless and

wireline RF solutions that result from strategic forward thinking and

leadership products like the AWT6221."



    ANADIGICS is recognized throughout the electronics industry as a

worldwide leader in the development and production of state-of-the-art

power amplifiers, tuners and splitters for next generation products in the

broadband wireless and wireline markets. ANADIGICS is a pioneer in the
