Anadigics Is Shipping Production Volumes of Its Aca1216 Surface-Mount Line Amplifier

Broadband wireless and wireline communications component maker Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, US is shipping production volumes of its ACA1216 surface-mount line amplifier to Applied Optoelectronics Inc's China subsidiary Global Technology, an original device manufacturer (ODM) for CATV equipment, in support of new DOCSIS 3.1 CATV infrastructure equipment. The DOCSIS 3.1 standard specifies an extended frequency range, enabling providers to offer higher data speeds as well as additional high-definition television (HDTV) and video-on-demand (VOD) services.

"Global Technology's selection of our ACA1216 line amplifier for its DOCSIS 3.1 infrastructure equipment expands new growth opportunities for Anadigics in China," says James Martin, senior business development director of infrastructure products. "As MSOs embrace the advanced capabilities made possible by DOCSIS 3.1, differentiated system performance and long-term reliability are critical to enabling widespread deployment. Our newest line amplifiers leverage Anadigics' rugged process technologies, high-performance circuit designs, and proven packaging to meet the stringent specifications of this standard and support the upcoming industry upgrade cycle," he adds. "We look forward to broadening our relationship with new designs in the near future." 

Anadigics offers a complete portfolio of surface-mount line amplifiers with high signal fidelity over extended frequencies up to 1.2GHz, in support of the newest generation of DOCSIS 3.1 downstream equipment. The surface-mount solutions offer what is claimed to be outstanding bit-error rate (BER), composite triple-beat (CTB), composite second-order (CSO), cross-modulation and carrier-to-intermodulation noise (CIN) characteristics for optimal performance in a fully loaded spectrum. 

Anadigics' DOCSIS 3.1 line amplifier family leverages the firm's proven high-linearity gallium arsenide (GaAs) MESFET process for reliability (to maximize up-time) along with high-performance gallium nitride (GaN) HEMT technology (for high output power and optimum power efficiency).
