Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) says that, as performance needs for each channel in the CATV head-end intensify, it continues to develop new infrastructure amplifiers that meet increasingly demanding linearity, bandwidth and power requirements.

The firm has introduced its latest CATV solution, the ACA1240, a gallium arsenide (GaAs)-based 1.2GHz variable-gain converged cable access platform (CCAP)/edge QAM/CMTS driver amplifier designed specifically for head-end and remote PHY applications.

Operating from a single 12V supply and offered in an 11mm x 11mm surface-mount package, the ACA1240 features what is claimed to be industry-leading return loss over attenuation range minimizing passband ripple, enabling optimal filter performance. In addition, the amplifier is said to offer superior output power and gain performance, as well as unparalleled linearity to meet critical downstream RF specifications (DRFI) at a higher power level.
