Global Technology Chooses Anadigics Line Amp For DOCSIS 3.1

GaAs-based line amplifier adopted for CATV network upgrades

Anadigics is shipping production volumes of its ACA1216 surface mount line amplifier to Global Technology, a developer of CATV equipment and a subsidiary of Applied Optoelectronics.

The line amplifier uses Anadigic's high linearity GaAs MESFET process along with GaN HEMT technology for high output power and optimum power efficiency.

The DOCSIS 3.1 standard specifies an extended frequency range, enabling providers to offer higher data speeds as well as additional high-definition television (HDTV) and video on demand (VOD) services.

"Global Technology's selection of our ACA1216 line amplifier for its DOCSIS 3.1 infrastructure equipment expands new growth opportunities for Anadigics in China," said James Martin, senior business development director of infrastructure products at Anadigics.

"Our newest line amplifiers leverage Anadigics' rugged process technologies, high-performance circuit designs, and proven packaging to meet the stringent specifications of this standard and support the upcoming industry upgrade cycle. We are delighted to be working closely with Global Technology and look forward to broadening our relationship with new designs in the near future."

Anadigics offers a range of surface mount line amplifiers with high signal fidelity over extended frequencies up to 1.2 GHz, in support of the newest generation of DOCSIS 3.1 downstream equipment.

The devices are designed to have high bit error rate (BER), composite triple beat (CTB), composite second order (CSO), cross modulation and carrier-to-intermodulation noise (CIN) characteristics for optimal performance in a fully-loaded spectrum.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
