RFHIC Introduces High Gain MMIC for FTTx, CATV & Broadcasting Market
Superior distortion characteristics for AE314 & AE312
Korea (June 23, 2009) – RFHIC Corporation, manufacturer of active RF & MW components and hybrids for
wireless telecommunication markets, released a GaAs E-pHEMT (Gallium Arsenide Enhancement Mode pHEMT) MMIC for the
FTTx, CATV and broadcasting markets.
AE314 is a cascode amplifier with high gain of 22dB(Typ.), and has superior distortion performance on
multi-channel environments. DC to 1GHz, or DC to 2GHz matching application is provided for FTTx or satellite
applications driver amplifier or a final amplifier.
AE312 has a current mirror circuit within the MMIC and is more stable in even a harsh environment. Very good
noise figure of 1.0dB (Typ.) makes this device idea for Low Noise Amplifier application for CATV and optical ONU
“RFHIC is a key supplier to cable television (CATV) cable modem and set-top box products, CATV infrastructure
products and Fiber-To-The-Premises (FTTP) products in US, Europe, and Korea. AP112, which has been sold for
millions of units per year in the very market is a great product, but we are happy to introduce the next
generation device –
AE312, which even provides higher gain and better distortion than AP112.” said Mr. Kevin Kim, Senior
International Sales Manager, RFHIC Corporation.
Both RFIC has very good gain flatness, high linearity, low noise figure, and high gain. The broadband
characteristics of the devices are exceptionally good for cable television (CATV) cable modem and set-top box
products, CATV infrastructure products and Fiber-To-The-Premises (FTTP) products. AE314 and
AE312 use +5V supply voltage, and are 75ohm impedance matched with strong in/out VSWR. Both
AE314 and AE312 are available in an industry standard SOT-89 low cost SMD plastic package and is
AE312 are available in sample quantity immediately, and volume shipments will start from August 2009. Other
higher output, push pull devices such as AE514 is available from RFHIC as well. These RoHS compliant device
samples are available through international representative networks or by directly contacting RFHIC. For
