USA: ANADIGICS Inc. announced that it has introduced three new surface mount line amplifiers. The ACA2460E, ACA2461E, and ACA2462E 1 GHz line amplifiers are optimized for cable television (CATV) systems in Asia by combining low power consumption and enhanced thermal performance with a wide gain range. These new line amplifiers also provide world-class linearity to ensure optimal performance in a fully-loaded spectrum.
"As emerging CATV markets aggressively build out new infrastructure, equipment manufacturers are seeking RF components that meet the unique specifications required by these applications," said Tim Laverick, VP of Infrastructure Products at ANADIGICS. "ANADIGICS' line amplifiers continue to set the performance and reliability standard, ensuring distortion-free video and audio, while minimizing costly field failures. Our new surface mount line amplifiers expand our MMIC product family with a wider range of gain and significantly reduced power consumption targeted for CATV systems in Asia."
ANADIGICS' new 24 V MMIC line amplifier "eco" power doublers leverage the Company's proven MESFET technology to deliver world-class linearity and industry-leading reliability. The ACA2460E, ACA2461E, and ACA2462E line amplifiers provide 22 dB, 25 dB, and 28 dB of gain, respectively, to provide the performance and flexibility required to design systems up to 1 GHz.
With lower power consumption and the proven thermal characteristics of ANADIGICS' standard SOIC package platform, these new MMIC line amplifiers help reduce heat sink requirements. ANADIGICS will also demonstrate an innovative system-level manufacturing solution for these MMICs during the 2013 China Content Broadcasting Networking (CCBN) conference in Beijing, China.
