Richardson RFPD introduces two new hybrid amplifiers for CATV from TriQuint

Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for two new hybrid amplifiers for CATV applications from TriQuint.

The TAT8884HO GaAs power doubler amplifier operates from 50 to 1000 MHz and features high linearity and gain. It offers CSO of -75 dBc and CTB of -78 dBc, anddraws 440 mA from a 24 V supply.

The TAT8888 is a GaN power doubler amplifier intended for output stage amplification in CATV infrastructure applications, including transmission and distribution. It also operates from 50 to 1000 MHz and features a push-pull cascode design for flat gain and low distortion, and it draws 445 mA from a 24 V supply to exceed the output linearity performance of traditional GaAs-based amplifiers.

Both of the new devices are packaged in industry-standard 7-pin SOT-115J modules.

Additional key features of the devices include:
