M/A-COM Technology Introduces New 8-Way Splitter for CATV Applications
New Splitter Features ‘Default-On Loop-Through Path’ that Provides Continuous Signal
Lowell, MA, August 1, 2011 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today an innovative 8-way active splitter for CATV applications. The MAAM-010237 belongs to a larger family of Broadband Active Splitters and targets multi-tuner set-top boxes, home gateways and other broadband, internet-based Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) applications. Featuring a default-on loop-through path, the MAAM-010237 allows for access to the cable signal even when the CPE box is powered down.
“M/A-COM Tech continues to lead the way with innovative, high performance products for CATV Customer Premises Equipment,” said Graham Board, Product Manager. “The MAAM-010237, 8-way active splitter with default-on loop-through path, reduces the front-end design complexity, component count, and real-estate requirements in today’s “green” multi-tuner gateways.”
The MAAM-010237 is a highly linear 8-way active splitter with low distortion and low noise figure.. Designed for operation from 50 to 1100 MHz, the MAAM-010237 is packaged in a RoHS compliant leadless 4mm PQFN package. The 8-way Splitter is fabricated using M/A-COM Tech’s E/D pHEMT process which optimizes default loop-through operation, low noise and low distortion.
Production quantities and samples of MAAM-010237 are available from stock. Final datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the M/A-COM Tech website by clicking the link below our logo on this page.
