 RFMD Expands Broadband Product Portfolio
for Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) Networks

New Products Include Amplifiers and Wide Bandwidth Passive Components

Visit RFMD

NEW ORLEANS, Oct 21, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- RF Micro Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq:RFMD), a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, today announced the expansion of its broadband product portfolio targeting Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) transmission network hardware, cable head end, cable hub equipment, and Multi Dwelling Unit/Multiple Tenant Unit (MDU/MTU) equipment. The new broadband products enhance cable operators' network performance and enable increased bandwidth to support rapidly growing digital-centric services, such as HDTV, 3D HDTV and "mid-split" DOCSIS(R) networking.

The use of mid-split architectures can expand the amount of usable upstream or return path bandwidth by more than 160 MHz. As an example, a mid-split capable HFC network can provide cable subscribers with Internet upload data rates that are five times faster than typical North American DOCSIS capable cable HFC networks. This enables multiple service operators (MSOs) to scale the data services on their existing cable transmission infrastructure, while delivering an enhanced Internet user experience and expanded digital services (e.g. HDTV streaming, HDTV downloads at ten times real-time data rates) to cable subscribers.

RFMD's newest HFC RF components are being showcased at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo(R) in New Orleans, October 20-22, and include a broad selection of amplifiers and wide bandwidth passive components. The amplifiers include linear amplifiers, low noise amplifiers and return path amplifiers, and the passive components include couplers, two-way splitters and transformers. As RFMD extends its product and technology leadership in broadband components, leading cable network equipment OEMs are increasingly selecting the Company's HFC RF components for their superior performance, reduced power consumption and enhanced user experience.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

1996 - 2024


Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
