Anadigics Expands DOCSIS 3.1 line
Surface mount line amplifiers offer four times the power of first generation GaN devices
Anadigics has introduced six new surface mount line amplifiers optimised for DOCSIS 3.1 applications. The company's portfolio of DOCSIS 3.1 products includes line amplifiers, reverse path amplifiers, edge QAM amplifiers, and gain blocks.
Anadigics' DOCSIS 3.1 line amplifiers combine the company's MESFET and high-linearity pHEMT technologies with a GaN output stage (power doublers only).
According to the company, the new ACA2416, ACA2419, ACA2454, ACA2457, ACA2458, and ACA2463 all offer exceptional composite triple beat (CTB), composite second order (CSO), cross modulation, carrier-to-intermodulation noise (CIN), modulation-error ratio (MER), and bit-error ratio (BER) characteristics for optimal performance in a fully-loaded spectrum.The ACA2458 joins the ACA2456, ACA4741, and ACA4788 in the new 4X class product family. These solutions offer four times the power of first generation GaN line amplifiers.
