TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. has announced the availability of three new innovative, efficient TriAccess™ line amplifiers that can replace multiple devices in CATV/FTTH systems. All products are being announced in conjunction with the ANGA Cable Show for broadband and satellite manufacturers and system operators (Cologne, Germany, 3-5 May 2011).
TriQuint Product Manager Brian Bauer stated that all three devices offer CATV & FTTH manufacturers a choice of cost-effective RFICs built with market-proven gallium arsenide (GaAs) technology combined with advanced design techniques. TriQuint devices operate on low supply current; they reduce power consumption compared to other solutions, making them a "green" choice that can also help RF CATV designers by providing a single product solution for multiple applications. In Fiber to the Home (FTTH) systems, TriQuint products can expand served subscribers by using installed networks to extend broadband coverage. All devices have been utilized successfully in numerous system deployments worldwide, Mr. Bauer added.
