ANADIGICS Expands Hybrid Line Amplifier Module Family

Press release date: November 13, 2012

ANADIGICS' New Hybrid Line Amplifier Modules Offer World-Class Ruggedness to Provide Industry-Leading Reliability

WARREN, N.J.,  -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced four new hybrid line amplifier power doubler modules, for CATV infrastructure networks. The Company's rugged hybrid line amplifier modules are optimized for demanding applications by delivering exceptional electrical performance and reliability. To maximize flexibility and ease of use, the hybrid line amplifier modules include passive components in a pin compatible SOT-115J package.

"We have expanded our hybrid line amplifier module product line with new products that provide superior ruggedness and RF performance," said Tim Laverick. "In addition to new modules for 870 MHz systems, we are introducing 1GHz hybrid modules with outstanding distortion characteristics. This level of performance combined with our proven track record of delivering industry-leading reliability provides manufacturers with a compelling solution for distortion-free video and audio, while minimizing field failures and costly truck rolls."

The ACA2786, ACA2788, ACA3748, and ACA3754 24 V line amplifier power doublers use the Company's proven MESFET technology to provide high output power, world-class linearity, and industry-leading reliability for 1 GHz and 870 MHz applications.  The new hybrid line amplifier modules are designed to provide the industry's highest electro-static discharge (ESD) rating and withstand the largest ringwave transient for greater ruggedness. ANADIGICS' hybrid line amplifier module family is offered in a wide range of gains and output power levels, while using the industry standard SOT-115J package to provide greater design flexibility across systems.
