TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, has released the first two members of its cost-effective TriAccess™ hybrid-packaged power doubler family. These CATV infrastructure devices are the first to utilize proprietary on-die linearization for best-in-class performance including excellent gain and low distortion. TriQuint is also announcing full production of two new GaN monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) power doublers for CATV infrastructure.

TriQuint is sampling its new gallium nitride (GaN) and gallium arsenide (GaAs) hybrid power doublers as well as its MMIC power doublers. Contact TriQuint to arrange a meeting at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, (Atlanta, Georgia World Congress Center, October 21-24.)

TriQuint’s fully-released and wide-ranging CATV portfolio includes both hybrid package and surface-mount package (SMP) products that can reduce part counts and improve performance in 12V to 24V systems.  The new hybrid products with on-die linearization complement TriQuint’s recently released 1200 MHz, 12V GaAs and 24V GaN surface mount devices. TriQuint is a vertically-integrated CATV/FTTH solutions provider with all key technologies in-house, enabling cost-effective, high performance broadband content delivery through infrastructure, headend and subscriber premises solutions.

TriQuint product solutions deliver top performance and economy for current and next-generation systems. TriQuint is also addressing the future of CATV design and the new DOCSIS® 3.1 specification. TriQuint’s Senior Director of Engineering, Chris Day, will speak at a Cable-Tec Expo workshop entitled, “HFC on Steroids: Options for Energizing the HFC Plant into the Future” on Wednesday, October 23.  Mr. Day’s paper, “Rethinking Amplifier Technology for DOCSIS 3.1” focuses on meeting the challenges of this demanding new specification through increased bandwidth, higher RF output power and improved power efficiency. He will demonstrate how these goals can be achieved without adding component costs.
