ANADIGICS 12 V Line Amplifier MMICs

COLOGNE, Germany, June 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today announced that the Company has expanded its 12 V surface mount CATV line amplifier family. The new ACA1210 push-pull amplifier and ACA1216 power doubler amplifier provide higher gain and output power levels, while minimizing overall current consumption. These new line amplifiers are optimized for 1 GHz systems and deliver excellent linearity to ensure peak performance in a fully-loaded spectrum.

New Line Amplifiers Optimized for 1 GHz Systems Combine Lower Power Consumption with Exceptional Output Power, Gain, and Linearity to Enable High Performance "Green" CATV Networks

"MSOs continue to add advanced services to their offering, including HDTV and video on demand, while seeking pragmatic solutions to minimize operating costs," said Tim Laverick, vice president of Infrastructure Products at ANADIGICS. "Our CATV infrastructure products continue to raise the bar in performance and reliability while minimizing power consumption. With the introduction of our new 12 V line amplifiers, we are providing a high performance path to green networks by offering greater gain and output power as manufacturers continue to develop system amplifiers that not only deliver triple-play services, but also minimize field failures and costly truck rolls."

ANADIGICS' complete family of 12 V line amplifier monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) leverage the Company's proven MESFET technology to offer world-class composite triple beat (CTB), composite second order (CSO), and cross modulation distortion characteristics, as well as industry-leading reliability. The ACA1210 delivers 18 dB of gain and +44 dBmV output power with a typical power consumption of 3 Watts, while the ACA1216 provides 27 dB of gain and +56 dBmV output power with a typical power consumption of 7.2 Watts.

ANADIGICS 12 V Line Amplifier Family Key Facts and Highlights:

  • Complete portfolio of line amplifier MMICs to provide maximum design flexibility
  • Bandwidth to 1 GHz to enable advanced services, such as HDTV and VOD
  • Low CTB, CSO, and noise figure for optimal performance in a fully loaded spectrum
  • Exceptional output power, gain, and thermal performance optimized for a variety of system implementations
  • Proven ANADIGICS GaAs MESFET process for a high mean-time-to-failure (MTTF)
