Macom Launches DOCSIS 3.1 Compliant CATV Amp
Push-pull infrastructure amplifier provides high output power, linearity and gain for fibre to the premises
Macom Technology, a leading supplier of high-performance analogue RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic semiconductor products, today announced its new MAAM-011169 12V CATV push-pull infrastructure amplifier designed to meet DOCSIS 3.1 and C-DOCSIS standards.
Targeted at hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) network amplifiers and FTTP ONTs, the new MAAM-011169 MMIC amplifier delivers high output power, gain and linearity with low power dissipation.
The MAAM-011169 delivers 46dBmV per channel output power with 25dB gain and is optimised for very low distortion and high linearity in a 75Î© push-pull amplifier circuit.
It provides excellent input and output return loss over the 45 to 1200MHz bandwidth whilst delivering superior thermal performance in an industry standard 5x7 mm PQFN package.
The MAAM-011169 is the newest addition to Macom's comprehensive portfolio of RF components specifically designed to comply with the DOCSIS 3.1 standard for high-bandwidth data transfer over existing HFC infrastructure.
Macom's extensive CATV technology expertise and robust global application support network ensure that CATV providers can meet growing bandwidth demands and accelerate their time to market with DOCSIS 3.1 systems and solutions.
"With the introduction of the MAAM-011169, Macom delivers a best-in-class next generation 12V power amplifier for legacy DOCSIS 3.0 and emerging DOCSIS 3.1 HFC networks," said Graham Board, senior director of Carrier Networks, Macom.
"Macom's high performance, cost competitive cable/broadband solutions - covering actives, passives and filters - enable network equipment providers to support end-to-end DOCSIS 3.1 compliant HFC networks."
