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 75Ω 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."

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.
