TriQuint launches low-noise, high-gain line amplifier for QAM-dominated content networks

At last week’s SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2010 in New Orleans (20–22 October), RF component maker and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA launched a new TriAccess amplifier, the TAT6254B, with lower equivalent input noise (EIN) of 3pA/rtHz and gain of 38dB.

The improved performance is targeted at networks with QAM-dominated content and those that can benefit from an extended optical link budget, including single system amplifier/receiver applications where noise optimization is most critical such as fiber-to-the-home (FTTH)/RF-over-glass (RFoG) systems.

“TriQuint's TriAccess CATV/FTTH products satisfy and simplify RF design needs in high-speed broadband systems,” says Brian Bauer, TriQuint’s CATV product marketing manager. “Our FTTH/GPON/RFoG amplifiers are ultra-low-noise, and our latest product release sets a new standard for low EIN—a critical parameter for improving optical link budgets,” he adds.
