Anadigics Inc. has launched a family of 870MHz hybrid line amplifiers designed primarily for use in CATV distribution systems.

The announcement of the ACA3722, ACA3733, ACA3742, ACA3747 and ACA3753 products marks the first time the company has made its high performance CATV line amplifier technology available to manufacturers in the industry-standard SOT115J hybrid package. The parts operate from 24V, and offer linearity with exceptional return loss and a high tolerance to ESD, the company claimed. The hybrid-packaged devices will enable manufacturers to assimilate Anadigics solutions into existing CATV distribution nodes and line extenders.

The ACA3722 is a 21.5dB gain, push-pull hybrid line amplifier, while the ACA3742 is a 21.5dB gain, power-doubler hybrid line amplifier. The ACA3753 is a 28dB gain, power-doubler hybrid line amplifier. The ACA3733 is a 34dB gain, push-pull hybrid line amplifier, and the ACA3747 is a 25dB gain, power-doubler hybrid line amplifier.

"These new hybrid products enable us to address growing markets in Asia and eastern Europe by harnessing Anadigics' RF technology and design capability," said Ray Aubert, senior product marketing manager at Anadigics.

The ACA3722 and ACA3742 products will be the first available for sampling in the Q2 09, followed shortly by the ACA3753. The ACA3733 and ACA3747 products will be available in Q3 09.
