MACOM Announces Broadband Amplifier for the Universal Front-End Customer-Premises Equipment

5V Low Noise Amplifier boasts superior broadband performance for 75 Ω customer premises equipment in ultra-small 2x2mm 8-lead package

LOWELL, Mass.--()--M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, today announced a new 5V RF Low Noise Amplifier ideally suited for 50-2700 MHz cable, terrestrial and satellite applications.

The MAAM-011117 is an innovative amplifier solution for customers who need a broadband, high performance solution for customer-premises equipment applications. Operating over a 50-2700 MHz frequency bandwidth, this ‘green’ device incorporates a power-down function in order to minimize power consumption during stand-by. The MAAM-011117 is packaged in an 8-lead 2mm x 2mm plastic package that incorporates a number of off-chip components resulting in a highly integrated solution for space constrained front-ends. The amplifier delivers high gain of 16dB, low noise of 2.7 dB and very low distortion performance - altogether providing the customers with a universal amplifier solution for easy and efficient front-end implementation.

“The MAAM-011117 has been designed specifically for customers requiring a highly linear, low noise, amplifier solution that covers DVT-T,-C and-S bands” said Graham Board, Product Manager, Networks. “The device boasts 16dB Gain across a matched 50 to 2700MHz band. This in conjunction with low power consumption, very low distortion and a power down mode make the MAAM-011117 the ideal solution for customer-premises equipment universal front-end.
