"MSOs continue to add advanced services to their offering, including HDTV and video on demand, while seeking pragmatic solutions to minimize operating costs," said Tim Laverick, vice president of Infrastructure Products at ANADIGICS. "Our CATV infrastructure products continue to raise the bar in performance and reliability while minimizing power consumption. With the introduction of our new 12 V line amplifiers, we are providing a high performance path to green networks by offering greater gain and output power as manufacturers continue to develop system amplifiers that not only deliver triple-play services, but also minimize field failures and costly truck rolls."ANADIGICS' complete family of 12 V line amplifier monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) leverage the Company's proven MESFET technology to offer world-class composite triple beat (CTB), composite second order (CSO), and cross modulation distortion characteristics, as well as industry-leading reliability. The ACA1210 delivers 18 dB of gain and +44 dBmV output power with a typical power consumption of 3 Watts, while the ACA1216 provides 27 dB of gain and +56 dBmV output power with a typical power consumption of 7.2 Watts.
