Semiconductor manufacturer Anadigics, Inc.ANAD expanded its DOCSIS portfolio with the launch of six new surface mount line amplifiers optimized for DOCSIS 3.1 applications.

DOCSIS 3.1 line amplifiers integrate Anadigics' MESFET and proprietary high-linearity pHEMT technologies with a GaN output stage (power doublers only), thus providing exceptional performance and reliability in CATV infrastructure applications.

Anadigics thus offers a complete portfolio of CATV infrastructure products to support the expected industry transition to DOCSIS 3.1. Its established designs, along with the industry's lowest field-failure rates work to minimize service disruptions and expensive truck rolls.

Its CATV infrastructure products come with outstanding output power, unmatched linearity, and excellent efficiency, thus enabling MSOs to reliably deliver ultra high data speeds to subscribers at economical costs.

The new amplifiers - ACA2416, ACA2419, ACA2454, ACA2457, ACA2458, and ACA2463 - deliver exceptional composite triple beat, cross modulation, composite second order, carrier-to-intermodulation noise, modulation-error ratio, and bit-error ratio characteristics, thus ensuring best possible performance and quality of service in a fully-loaded spectrum.

The ACA2458 is part of the new 4X class product family, along with the ACA2456, ACA4741, and ACA4788. These devices are a huge improvement over the first generation GaN line amplifiers, and deliver four times their power. This extraordinary power, along with its other impressive performance characteristics, facilitates Node+0 system architectures without active components downstream of the fiber or R-MACPHY node.

Anadigics' portfolio of DOCSIS 3.1 products consists of line amplifiers, edge QAM amplifiers, reverse path amplifiers and gain blocks. Having set the standard of performance and reliability, these solutions help MSOs attain optimal system performance across a range of network architectures and applications.

Anadigics presently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Better-ranked players in the industry include Pixelworks, Inc. PXLW and Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. MLNX , both sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), along with Avago Technologies Limited AVGO , carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
