ANADIGICS Launches New Family of DOCSIS 3.1 Hybrid Line Amplifier Infrastructure Modules

WARREN, N.J., Oct. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD) (“ANADIGICS” or the “Company”), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced a new family of hybrid line amplifier modules optimized for DOCSIS 3.1 infrastructure equipment. The new ACA47XX line amplifiers integrate ANADIGICS’ proven surface mount solutions and passive components in an industry-standard SOT-115J package. Equipment manufacturers are able to select from push-pull and power doubler configurations, with various gain and output power levels to ensure optimal DOCSIS 3.1 system performance.

“The new ACA47XX hybrid line amplifier module family raises the bar in performance and reliability,” said James Martin, senior business development director of Infrastructure Products at ANADIGICS. “These solutions combine our field-proven, highly linear GaAs technology with a high-power GaN output stage to deliver exceptional output power over the full DOCSIS 3.1 frequency band. With global data consumption continuing to rise, our new DOCSIS 3.1 hybrid line amplifier modules stand out as critical enablers for the anticipated major industry-wide infrastructure upgrade.”

ANADIGICS’ ACA47XX hybrid line amplifier modules combine the Company’s proven MESFET and proprietary high-linearity pHEMT technologies with a GaN output stage (power doublers only) in a common SOT-115J package to deliver outstanding performance and reliability in CATV infrastructure applications. These line amplifiers 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. Two members of the new product family, the ACA4741 and ACA4788, offer record breaking output power to support both analog/digital and completely digital CATV systems. These solutions deliver world-class performance to enable Node+0 system architectures without active components downstream of the fiber or R-MACPHY node.

ANADIGICS ACA47XX DOCSIS 3.1 Hybrid Line Amplifier Module Family Key Facts and Highlights:

  • Complete family of +24 Vdc solutions in multiple configurations, gain, and output power levels
  • Exceptionally low MER, BER, CTB, CSO, and cross modulation distortion characteristics
  • GaN output stage increases output power, ruggedness, and efficiency (power doublers only)
  • GaAs driver stage provides exceptional linearity, reliability, and low noise
  • Industry standard SOT-115J package to provide greater design flexibility across systems
