Industry's First SMT GaN Module for CATV

I don't normally point out specific products but I like to highlight new technology or products first to the market. RFMD has introduced the industry’s first surface mount GaN power doubler module aimed at CATV networks. It uses a combination of GaN HEMT and GaAs pHEMT technologies and provides high output capability from 45-1003 MHz with excellent distortion performance.


  • 45 to 1003 MHz GaAs/GaN Power Doubler Module

  • 61dBmV Rated Power

  • High Current Mode: 450mA at 24VDC

  • Low Current Mode: 350mA at 24VDC

  • Min. Gain: 22.5dB at 1GHz

  • Saves ≈ 50% PCBA Area versus SOT115J (with external baluns) 182 mm² versus 362 mm²


  • CATV Optical nodes

  • CATV Line amplifiers
