M/A-COM Technology Solutions Announces 1-Bit Digital Attenuator
for CATV Applications

-- New GaAs Integrated Digital Attenuator Features Low Insertion Loss and 75 Ω Impedance

M/A-COM Technology Solutions


Lowell, MA, August 24, 2011 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a 1-Bit digital attenuator for CATV and set-top box (STB) front end applications. The MAAD-010305 is a 15 dB step GaAs MMIC digital attenuator. It is designed to condition cable input signals to the STB. The device is ideally suited for use where high accuracy, very low power consumption, and low intermodulation products are required.
 
“We are very pleased to continue the expansion of our 75 Ω product portfolio with the introduction of this highly linear, 15 dB digital attenuator,” said Graham Board, Product Manager. “This device is ideally suited for use in high volume, cost sensitive customer premises equipment.”

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...
