The Pico Macom CA30/1000 is a high quality push-pull wall-mounted distribution amplifier producing signals with extremely low-noise and harmonic distortion. The amplifier is capable of broadband 158-channel operation over the 54-1000MHz range. This amplifier makes an excellent distribution system amplifier for heavily loaded MDU and broadband CATV and SMATV systems. Because of its extremely low-noise figure and low distortion, the CA30/1000 is ideally suited for use in larger networks where amplifier cascading is required. In expanding bi-directional broadband systems the CA30/1000 can be used in conjunction with Tru-Spec Sub CATV diplexers to split forward and reverse paths. Alternately Pico Macom’s PIDA series bi-directional amplifiers may be used.
