CATV: originally "community antenna television," or "community authority television" is more commonly known as "Cable TV"
Cable modems and CATV set-top boxes are comprised of mostly digital components, but high performance analog circuitry is still critical to the application. Analog Devices continues to be a major supplier for this need with its portfolio of CATV line drivers and active RF splitters. ADI's high performance drivers and splitters enable the implementation of the most advanced cable modems and set top boxes on the market.
Analog Devices offers several high-performance quadrature modulators and demodulators for operation at frequencies up to 2.7 GHz, some of which have been honored with awards from industry-leading electronic publications. Their combination of performance, broadband operating frequency, and flexible device architecture make Analog Devices' modulators and demodulators ideal for a variety of wireless infrastructure applications, including 2G, 2.5G and 3G cellular base station radios, high-capacity point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radio links, wireless LAN and wireless local loop equipment.
ADI offers a variety of transceivers for wireless applications. The Othello® family of direct conversion radios offers numerous benefits to developers of GSM, GPRS and EDGE terminals such as best-in-class performance and significant BOM savings. The ADF702x family is well-suited for audio, cordless phones, video over ISM, low-rate connectivity, security systems and automatic meter reading, featuring low power and minimal external components.
The ADG901 series are the highest bandwidth CMOS switches and multiplexers available. The standard CMOS process and integrated TTL drivers contribute to a reduced solution cost and PCB board space compared to most GaAs-based solutions. SPST, SPDT and SP4T versions (reflective and absorptive) are available for a wide range of low power (up to 16dBm) applications including antenna switching, filter switching and tuner applications.
ADI offers a variety of PLL synthesizers for use in applications such as wireless base stations, LAN, mobile handsets/PDAs, broadband wireless access, I&I and test equipment, satellite, sonar and CATV. We offer both single and dual PLLs as well as Fractional-N and Integer-N, featuring best-in-class performance, phase noise and integration.
