M/A-COM Technology Solutions Introduces New Push Pull CATV Amplifier
CATV Amplifier Features Low Distortion and Differential Inputs and Outputs
Lowell, MA, - M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new push-pull amplifier for CATV, FTTX, DBS, and HDTV applications where low noise figure and low distortion are required.
The MAAM-010144 is a GaAs MESFET MMIC amplifier. The MMIC design is configured as a pair of cascode MESFET amplifiers for optimal broadband performance. The device is designed for integration in a 75 W push-pull circuit and exhibits low distortion.
"With the introduction of the MAAM-010144, we continue to expand our portfolio of high performance amplifiers for CATV infrastructure applications," said Graham Board, Product Manager. "The MAAM-010144 utilizes M/A-COM Tech's established 0.5 Ķm MESFET process to deliver a highly linear, 75 W, push-pull amplifier with 20.5 dB of small signal gain."
Packaged in a TSSOP 16-Lead exposed paddle package, the MAAM-010144 provides a high gain of 20.5 dB and +8 V DC bias. The CATV amplifier operates from 50 to 1000 MHz and exhibits a gain flatness of 0.6 dB and low noise figure of 5.5 dB. The MAAM-010144 is optimized at 75 W with an input return loss of 18 dB and an output return loss of 15 dB.
