Anadigics ship volumes of GaN power doubler

Surface mount chip suits new DOCSIS 3.1 CATV equipmenrt

Anadigics has announced that it is shipping production volumes of its ACA2429 GaN power doubler surface mount IC in support of new DOCSIS 3.1 CATV infrastructure equipment.

CATV service providers are focused on expanding their customer base in the face of alternative broadband technologies, according to Tim Laverick, vice president of infrastructure products at Anadigics.

He said: "To help them succeed, network equipment manufacturers are leveraging our world-class DOCSIS 3.1 infrastructure solutions. The ACA2429 power doubler, now shipping in production volume to a leading European manufacturer, provides reliable, linear power amplification over an expanded frequency range to help CATV service providers offer higher data rates and take full advantage of all that DOCSIS 3.1 has to offer."

Anadigics' ACA2429 line amplifier is based on its MESFET technology and a GaN output stage. This power doubler provides 25dB gain with +60dBmV output power and 1.2GHz bandwidth, with 10W of power consumption. 

With a combination of high gain, output power and linearity coupled with low current consumption and bit error rate (BER), Anadigics' ACA2429 line amplifier enables higher data speeds as well as distortion-free video and audio, according to the company.
