ANADIGICS Launches Family of New Hybrid Line Amplifiers for CATV Infrastructure

ANADIGICS’ New Hybrid Line Amplifier Modules, Designed Specifically as Drop-In Replacements for SOT-115J Solutions, Offer Excellent Performance With Industry-Leading Reliability

WARREN, N.J., Oct. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD) (“ANADIGICS” or the “Company”), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced a new family of hybrid line amplifier modules.  Specifically developed as drop-in replacement solutions for system amplifiers, the Company’s new ACA27XX hybrid modules include passive components in a pin compatible SOT-115J package and are optimized to minimize or eliminate tuning requirements.

“Our new hybrid line amplifier modules provide a compelling solution for a wide range of deployed system amplifiers, as well as infrastructure equipment in production,” said James Martin, senior business development director of Infrastructure Products at ANADIGICS.  “By combining outstanding performance with our proven track record of delivering industry-leading reliability, ANADIGICS’ new ACA27XX infrastructure product line is designed specifically to ensure distortion-free video and audio.”

The new ACA27XX line amplifiers, available in push-pull and power doubler configurations, use the Company’s proven MESFET technology to provide high output power, excellent linearity, and industry-leading reliability for 1003 MHz and 874 MHz applications.  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.

ANADIGICS ACA27XX Hybrid Line Amplifier Module Key Facts and Highlights:

  • Complete family offers manufacturers and equipment service providers with an optimized solution for their application
  • Excellent gain and output power levels, with low current consumption for greater system performance
  • Low composite triple beat (CTB), composite second order (CSO), and cross modulation distortion characteristics for optimal performance in a fully-loaded spectrum
  • Proven ANADIGICS GaAs MESFET process for a high mean time to failure (MTTF)
