"CATV service providers worldwide are sharply focused on expanding their customer base in the face of alternative broadband technologies," said Tim Laverick, vice president of Infrastructure Products at ANADIGICS. "To help them succeed, network equipment manufacturers are leveraging our world-class DOCSIS 3.1 infrastructure solutions. The ACA2429 power doubler, now shipping in production volume to a leading European manufacturer, provides reliable, linear power amplification over an expanded frequency range to help CATV service providers offer higher data rates and take full advantage of all that DOCSIS 3.1 has to offer."

ANADIGICS' ACA2429 line amplifier leverages the Company's MESFET technology and a GaN output stage to deliver exceptional performance in CATV infrastructure applications. This power doubler provides 25 dB gain with +60 dBmV output power and 1.2 GHz bandwidth, with only 10 Watts of power consumption. The ACA2429 GaN line amplifier offers exceptional 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. With a world-class combination of high gain, output power and linearity coupled with low current consumption and bit error rate (BER), ANADIGICS' ACA2429 line amplifier enables higher data speeds as well as distortion-free video and audio. Offered in a 16-lead SOIC surface mount package, the ACA2429 line amplifier delivers proven reliability, enhanced manufacturability and exceptional value as a compelling alternative to hybrid line amplifier module designs.
