CATV amplifiers are DOCSIS 3.1 compliant


Designed for compliance with the DOCSIS 3.1 standard for high-bandwidth data transfer over existing HFC infrastructure, a range of CATV amplifiers have been released by M/A-COM Technology Solutions.

Covering both upstream and downstream bands and complementing MACOM’s recently introduced portfolio of DOCSIS 3.1 compliant passives, these amplifiers are suitable for head-end, node, system and line access equipment requiring broader bandwidth, high output power and low distortion. These active components are available in integrated multi-stage and single-stage configurations, allowing system designers the flexibility to achieve desired performance.

The upstream single-ended, push-pull and variable gain amplifiers support frequency splits up to 300MHz, offering excellent linearity, modulation error ratio, low noise figure and high gain. The downstream, single-ended, push-pull and variable gain amplifiers cover the extended 45 to 1225MHz with a range of gain and output power levels, while delivering high linearity, output power and small signal performance.

“With this portfolio of DOCSIS 3.1 compliant amplifiers, MACOM is enabling network equipment designers to meet DOCSIS 3.1 specifications in both the up and downstream bands,” said Graham Board, Director, Carrier Networks, MACOM. “MACOM’s comprehensive offering of single-ended and push-pull upstream and downstream amplifiers, coupled with our extensive portfolio of passives and filters, help to deliver superior end-to-end RF amplifier performance in HFC access amplifiers.”
