GaAs hybrid amplifiers for distribution nodes

December 12, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Richardson RFPD is now distributing two new GaAs hybrid amplifiers from Anadigics, the ACA2786 and ACA2788, each consisting of two pairs of parallel amplifiers that are optimized for very low distortion and noise figure with input and output transient voltage protection.

These rugged devices include an integrated ring wave surge protection, as well as superior ESD protection of over 7kV, and are offered in standard SOT-115J packages. They are designed for distribution nodes, system amplifiers, and line extenders in CATV HFC distribution systems. Both devices have an operating range of 40MHz to 1GHz, with respective gains of 25dB and 28dB. They operate from a 24V supply and draw 430mA.
