MACOM launches DOCSIS 3.1-compliant 12V CATV push-pull infrastructure amplifier

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog RF, microwave, millimeter-wave and photonic applications) has launched the MAAM-011169 12V CATV push-pull infrastructure amplifier designed to meet DOCSIS 3.1 and C-DOCSIS standards, with production quantities and samples are available now. Targeted at hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) network amplifiers and fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) optical network termination (ONT), the new monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifier delivers high output power, gain and linearity with low power dissipation.

The MAAM-011169 delivers 46dBmV per channel output power with 25dB gain and is optimized for very low distortion and high linearity in a 75Ω push-pull amplifier circuit. It is reckoned to provide excellent input and output return loss over the 45-1200MHz bandwidth while delivering superior thermal performance in an industry-standard 5mm x 7mm PQFN package.

The MAAM-011169 is the newest addition to MACOM's portfolio of RF components specifically designed to comply with the DOCSIS 3.1 standard for high-bandwidth data transfer over existing HFC infrastructure. The firm says that its CATV technology expertise and global application support network ensure that CATV providers can meet growing bandwidth demands and accelerate their time to market with DOCSIS 3.1 systems and solutions.

"With the introduction of the MAAM-011169, MACOM delivers a best-in-class next-generation 12V power amplifier for legacy DOCSIS 3.0 and emerging DOCSIS 3.1 HFC networks," says Graham Board, senior director of carrier networks. "MACOM's high-performance, cost-competitive cable/broadband solutions – covering actives, passives and filters – enable network equipment providers to support end-to-end DOCSIS 3.1-compliant HFC networks," he adds. 

MACOM's MAAM-011169 amplifier and wired broadband portfolio is on show in booth #2710 at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo'15 in New Orleans, LA, USA (13-16 October).
