Photo Release -- ANADIGICS Introduces DOCSIS 3.1 Edge QAM Amplifier
New Infrastructure Amplifier Offers Outstanding Gain, Linearity and Output
Power to Enable Advanced DOCSIS 3.1 Services, Including Ultra High Data Speeds
ATLANTA, Oct. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANAD) (the
"Company"), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today announced
that the Company has launched a new CATV Edge QAM (EQAM) driver amplifier.
Edge QAM, a component of cable modem termination systems (CMTS), is used by
CATV multiple system operators (MSOs) to provide switched digital delivery,
such as video-on-demand, telephone, and Internet services. By implementing
Edge QAM modulators, MSOs are able to support the growing demand for network
services and rising concurrence rates of video services.

The ACA1240 Edge QAM amplifier leverages ANADIGICS' industry-leading GaAs
technology and unique circuit designs to deliver the industry's highest level
of linearity with high output power and gain.This level of performance
ensures high data throughput, distortion-free video and audio, and clear IP
voice communications in data over cable service interface specification
(DOCSIS) systems standard version 3.1.
"Edge QAM is being adopted by MSOs to reliably manage increasingly complex
networks and services," said Tim Laverick, vice president of infrastructure
products at ANADIGICS. "These devices require exceptionally linear
amplification at high output power and gain levels to ensure quality of
service and reliability. ANADIGICS has responded to this challenge by
developing a new infrastructure amplifier that is optimized for more dense and
compact Edge QAM applications utilizing highly linear amplification and
ANADIGICS' ACA1240 infrastructure amplifier features a pre-amplifier,
continuously adjustable linear attenuator and output driver in a compact 7 mm
by 7 mm QFN package. Separate supply and enable pins are provided for each
stage with the ability to set the bias current of each stage independently.
The new DOCSIS 3.1 Edge QAM amplifier provides 37 dB gain at 1.2 GHz with
exceptional linearity. With full spectrum support per RF port, the ACA1240 is
optimized for consolidated headend systems, including equipment targeting the
new converged cable access platform (CCAP) specifications. The ACA1240 also
exceeds the challenging Downstream Radio Frequency Interface (DRFI) +8 ACP
ANADIGICS Edge QAM Amplifier Key Facts and Highlights:
oHigh linearity and gain integrated amplifier with an adjustable 25 dB
oSingle 12 V supply with less than 6 W power consumption
oSeparate bias circuits for each stage, set externally for low-power
oInput and output return loss of less than 20 dB
oCompact 7 mm x 7 mm 48 pin QFN package
oBalanced inputs and outputs matched for a 75 Ohm system
Exhibit at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo:
ANADIGICS will be exhibiting at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2013, October 22-24,
in Atlanta, GA. Visit the ANADIGICS exhibit, booth 608, to learn more about
the Company's DOCSIS 3.1 infrastructure solutions, including the new ACA1240
Edge QAM amplifier.
