MARCH 3, 2008 -- TriAccess Technologies (search for TriAccess) has debuted what it asserts is the first FTTH RFIC in-home amplifier that fully integrates automatic gain control (AGC), temperature-compensated power detection, and multi-stage high gain amplification.
The new product, called the TAT 6280, is designed to meet GPON rollout criteria calling for a wide AGC range with very low noise. The TAT6280 provides designers with the flexibility to reach emerging requirements, such as sub-1 W power consumption, the company says. The TAT6280 includes the ability to receive -8-dBm optical power input with an output of more than 24 dBmV RF power without the need for a secondary external post amplifier. The TAT6280 is 5x5 mm, facilitating smaller design layouts in transceiver and ONT designs.
TriAccess says the TAT 6280 is the first integrated chip designed to meet both telco and CATV requirements out to 1 GHz. "Providers of Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) FTTH networks are finding that a broader optical input range helps facilitate rollouts, and that higher RF output is required to support multiple splits in the home," said Brian Bauer, vice president of marketing for TriAccess Technologies. "With the addition of the TAT6280, TriAccess Technologies now has two TAT6200 series parts and 20 customers in its FTTH business."
