Warren, N.J.ANADIGICS Inc. has launched its ABA3101 and ABA3115 balanced low noise linear power amplifiers (PAs) designed to generate high signal integrity in CATV set-top box, distribution and drop applications.
The ABA3101 is a +8V supply design that delivers +34dBmV per channel of highly linear output power, together with 12dB of RF gain. Housed in a thermally enhanced package, the ABA3101 maintains composite second order (CSO) and composite triple beat (CTB) distortion products below -69 dBc, and provides a typical noise figure less than 3.2dB across the 1GHz CATV band.
ANADIGICS' ABA3115 operates from a +5V supply to provide +25dBmV per channel of linear output power and 15dB of RF gain. Operating up to 870MHz, this GaAs IC maintains CSO and CTB distortion products below -70 dBc, and provides a typical low noise figure of 2.7dB. The ABA3115 also incorporates a shutdown feature under logic control, whereby power consumption is reduced to 15mW.
The ABA3101 and ABA3115, as well as the previously released ABA3100, ADA10000 and ADA10001, are each housed in a 16-pin surface mount package, providing a common platform for CATV product designers.
