Anadigics Introduces RF Front-End For DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modems

The ARA2017 programmable gain upstream amplifier and AIT1061 integrated wideband data tuner debut as the industry’s first complete RFIC chipset for cable modems meeting DOCSIS 3.0 standards. According to the company, the ARA2017 is the first upstream amp available for DOCSIS 3.0, while the AIT1061 has the smallest form factor, 6 mm x 6 mm x 1 mm, of any current DOCSIS 3.0 tuner. In a 28-pin QFN package measuring 5 mm x 5 mm x 1 mm, the ARA2017 delivers output power levels to +64 dBmV with a harmonic distortion of -55 dBc and output noise levels as low as -53.8 dBmV. The AIT1061 integrates all the functions of a double-conversion wideband data tuner including an up converter, down converter, VCO, synthesizer, IF amplifier, RF gain control, and IF gain control. The device operates from a single 5V source, eliminating the need for a second power supply. For additional information, call ANADIGICS INC., Warren, NJ. (908) 668-5000.
