TriQuint’s TriAccess Product Line Supports Faster Convergence of Telecommunications Services in China
TriQuint Semiconductor, today announced that its complete TriAccess™ line of cable TV (CATV) and Fiber to the Home (FTTH) products supports the China State Council ‘Three into One’ initiative for competitive, world-class high-speed broadband connectivity. TriQuint’s TriAccess products increase efficiency and lower overall costs for Edge QAM / DOCSIS® 3.0, FTTH, cable TV infrastructure and subscriber premises cable systems.
“Connect the Digital World to the Global Network”
The Chinese government’s support for telecom, television and internet convergence increases the opportunity for traditional CATV network operators, broadcasters, internet service providers and telecom companies to compete or combine services to gain market share and better serve subscribers. This move toward convergence means that to achieve success, system operators need to add low-cost, high-bandwidth technologies to their networks, a process made easier and more efficient with TriQuint TriAccess products. The name ‘TriAccess’ is derived from the three ways TriQuint products assist CATV engineers to create improved broadband 75-Ohm access: Better efficiency, better linearity and smaller-size devices for CATV / FTTH systems.
“TriQuint’s TriAccess on-chip linearized solutions have been shown to help CATV network manufacturers develop more efficient products that use less power. At the same time TriQuint products enable higher-speed connections, or a larger service area for converged video, voice and high-speed internet. TriAccess amplifiers and filters provide end-to-end solutions for all major segments of the 75-Ohm market,” said Ting Xiong, TriQuint’s Country Manager for China.
TriQuint’s TriAccess devices for Edge QAM / DOCSIS® 3.0, CATV infrastructure, subscriber (home) amplification and Fiber to the Home (FTTH) give manufacturers and product designers simplified RF connectivity that supports a large variety of wideband services such as HDTV, high-speed data and Video on Demand (VOD).
Edge QAM / DOCSIS® 3.0 Amplifiers: The TriAccess product portfolio is designed to facilitate high-speed wideband CATV connections for a more efficient use of the cable TV spectrum. These products include the world’s first on-chip linearized amplifier: TriQuint’s TAT7467H, which is designed with reliable GaAs pHEMT technology and offers 40%+ efficiency for lower operational costs and enhanced competitiveness. TriQuint TriAccess products, including TGA2807-SM for slightly higher output levels, excel at meeting stringent DOCSIS® 3.0 specifications.
Fiber to the Home (FTTH) & RF over Glass (RFoG): To better compete, incumbent cable operators and new market entrants need solutions that effectively provide HDTV, digital voice and high-speed internet by leveraging existing network equipment and cable modems. The most effective way to deliver the highest bandwidth capability over existing networks is with FTTH, including systems using RFoG (RF over Glass); these solutions are particularly beneficial for new construction and network upgrades. TriQuint’s TriAccess line includes products like the TAT6254D that are specifically designed to support the needs of the RFoG specification.
CATV Infrastructure: TriQuint’s new TriAccess portfolio now offers solutions at the die, packaged die and multi-chip module levels. The new design of the high-gain TAT8858 (integrated push-pull amplifier), combined with TriQuint’s TAT8857 (integrated power doubler), are ideal for CATV infrastructure applications, providing the economy of GaAs-based design and superior efficiency performance.
Home / Subscriber Amplifiers: The TriAccess line of high performance ICs (drop amplifiers) for subscriber applications offer multiple gain levels that cost-effectively enable central gateway and multi-room architectures as well as MOCA (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) and Ethernet over coax applications. TriQuint’s new TAT7430B and TAT7427 provide increased gain, (22.5 dB and 18.0 dB, respectively), to complement the TAT7461 16 dB product; all devices meet stringent distortion requirements. TriQuint’s CATV subscriber / home solutions empower manufacturers with a decisive, competitive advantage: the ability to increase network performance to meet the new home architecture standards desired by leading MSOs.
TriQuint’s TriAccess line, including low power consumption on-chip linearized ICs, low noise receivers and stable home amplifiers, will be exhibited at the China Content Broadcasting Networks (CCBN) conference in Beijing (22-25 March 2010), Booth 1B017.
