Versatile CATV amplifier can be biased from 3 to 5 volts
Richardson RFPD has announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a low noise amplifier for CATV applications from MACOM Technology Solutions.
In a 75 Ω CATV application, the MAAL-011139 provides 21.5 dB of flat gain while biased from 3 to 5 volts. It provides superior noise figure while maintaining excellent return losses, and gain and current may be optimized with adjustment of external component values. The new device is assembled in a SOT-89 plastic package.
The MAAL-011139 is ideally suited as the input stage for fiber-to-the-home (FTTh) applications and other 75 Ω infrastructure applications. It can support upstream (5–204 MHz) and downstream (45–1218 MHz) CATV operation.
The MAAL-011139 can also be matched into a 50-ohm system. In a broadband 50–2000 MHz application, the LNA provides 17 dB of flat gain. It offers 17 dB of available gain beyond 4 GHz.
Additional key features of the MAAL-011139 include:
Single stage, single-ended
75 Ω CATV, 5–1218 MHz
