RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a high linearity MMIC power doubler designed to support DOCSIS 3.1 CATV requirements.
The Skyworks ACA1216 offers 27.5 dB typical gain at the upper end of its 50 to 1218 MHz frequency range. Ideal for hybrid fiber coax (HFC) equipment including line extenders, nodes, system amplifiers and headend equipment, the ACA1216 operates using 12 V and 725 mA. Control pins allow independent control of input and output stage currents. CTB is measured at 78 dB while Xmod is -66 dB and CSO is -70 dB. The SOIC16 wide-body package has a heat slug leaving plenty of margin for heat flux yet minimizing board space and external components.
