The ACA2431 from Anadigics is a surface mount power doubler that operates from 50 MHz to 1218 MHz. This 24 V line amplifier deliver exceptional linearity and output power, enabling CATV service providers to increase system bandwidth in support of DOCSIS 3.1. By extending frequencies to 1.2 GHz DOCSIS 3.1 enables higher data speeds as well as additional high-definition television (HDTV) and video on demand (VOD) services. This amplifier leverages the ANADIGICS high linearity GaAs MESFET process along with GaN HEMT technology for high output power and optimum power efficiency. It consists of two parallel amplifiers that provide low distortion and a gain of 28 dB.
