Analog Devices acquires broadband GaAs and GaN amplifier firm OneTree

Analog Devices Inc (ADI) of Norwood, MA, USA (which provides mixed-signal ICs for cable access, ranging from data converters through clocking and control/power conditioning) has acquired OneTree Microdevices Inc of Santa Rosa, CA, a privately held fabless semiconductor company for emerging broadband networks that develops components for cable television (CATV) and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks.

ADI says that, with the acquisition of OneTree’s gallium arsenide (GaAs) and gallium nitride (GaN) amplifier portfolio, it now supports the complete signal chain for next-generation cable access networks.

“Analog Devices, in combination with OneTree Microdevices, is uniquely positioned to solve the bandwidth and power efficiency challenges facing cable operators today in their efforts to increase broadband internet services for homes and businesses,” says Greg Henderson, Analog Devices’ VP of RF and Microwave business. “OneTree’s expertise aligns with ADI’s strategic focus on GaN technology and extends ADI’s broad portfolio of high-performance, RF and microwave signal chain solutions for infrastructure, defense and instrumentation markets.”

Cable operators are counting on next-generation architectures such as DOCSIS 3.1 (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) and Remote PHY to increase the capacity of cable networks, says ADI. “Both ADI and OneTree are directly engaged with customers, cable operators and industry standards groups to drive cable standards discussions,” notes OneTree’s co-founder Chris Day. “Together, we will be able to effectively assist cable operators in their quest to provide compelling cost and data rates to home and business users.”
