Anadigics expands hybrid line amplifier module family to 1GHz

Broadband wireless and wireline communications component maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA has introduced four new hybrid line amplifier module power doubler modules for CATV infrastructure networks. The firm says that its rugged hybrid line amplifier modules are optimized for demanding applications. To maximize flexibility and ease of use, the modules include passive components in a pin-compatible SOT-115J package.

“In addition to new modules for 870MHz systems, we are introducing 1GHz hybrid modules with outstanding distortion characteristics,” says Anadigics’ Tim Laverick. “This level of performance, combined with our proven track record of delivering industry-leading reliability, provides manufacturers with a compelling solution for distortion-free video and audio, while minimizing field failures and costly truck rolls,” he adds. 

The 40MHz-1GHz ACA2786 and ACA2788 and 40MHz-870MHz ACA3748 and ACA3754 24V line amplifier power doublers use the firm’s proven GaAs MESFET technology to provide high output power, linearity and reliability (a high mean-time-to-failure) for 1GHz and 870MHz applications. Performance includes low composite triple beat (CTB), composite second order (CSO), and cross modulation distortion characteristics for optimal performance in a fully loaded spectrum; positive slope cable equivalent; and controlled gain limits that minimize lot-to-lot variation and ensure uniformity, the firm says.

The new modules are designed to provide the industry's highest electro-static discharge (ESD) rating and withstand the largest ringwave transient for greater ruggedness, especially for in outdoor applications.

The hybrid line amplifier module family is offered in a wide range of gains and output power levels, while using
the industry-standard SOT-115J package to provide greater design flexibility across systems.

Samples of the hybrid line amplifier modules are available now.
