SAW filter hikes available bandwidth twofold

TriQuint Semiconductor has stepped up twofold the available bandwidth in its latest SAW filter to 100MHz for high-speed wideband cable TV digital tuner applications.

The 856653 filter is built using a new, proprietary technology that has enabled CATV tuner, baseband and STB manufacturers to build smaller, high performance DOCSIS 3.0-based high-speed cable modems. These modems are optimized for faster data transfer, including advanced services such as video-on-demand (VOD).

The DOCSIS 3.0 specification, the fourth generation of the cable industry's data over cable service interface application specification, was created to enable faster two-way movement of large data files over conventional hybrid fiber coax (HFC) cable.

TriQuint's 856653 is now sampling and shipping worldwide to major digital tuner and STB manufacturers. It is available in China through TriQuint offices in Shenzhen and Shanghai and throughout all of China by Avnet Asia Pacific.
