RFMD launches linear CATV 40-1008MHz GaAs HBT-based amplifier

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has launched the RFCA3302, a high-performance indium gallium phosphide (InGaP) heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifier designed to run from a single +5V supply without the need for an external dropping resistor.

The high gain (21dB), high linearity and low distortion (40dBm IP3; -65dBc CSO; -83dBc CTB) from 40MHz to 1008MHz suits broadband cable applications, says the firm. An integrated bias circuit provides stable gain over temperature and process variations.

Applications include broadband 75Ω gain blocks, CATV distribution amplifiers, pre-amplifiers for CATV multi-dwelling units, and drop amplifiers.

Offered in a small SOT-89 package and is RoHS compliant, the product is currently available in production quantities. Pricing begins at $1.51 each in 1000-unit quantities.
