RFFC0085 out of band tuner from RF Parts

Supplier News

RF Parts introduces RFMD’s new frequency converter integrated circuit (IC), the RFFC0085. The CMOS-based RFFC0085 frequency converter IC is designed for use as an Out-of-Band (OOB) receive circuit tuner in cable industry and:

  • SATCOM-DBS set-top boxes
  • DOCSIS(R) Set-Top Gateways
  • OpenCable Application Platform (OCAP)
  • CableCards
  • Tru2Way(TM) products
  • CableCard-equipped HDTVs
Features of the frequency converter include:
  • The frequency converter consists of an input AGC amplifier, mixer and a video/AGC amplifier, delivers optimum performance with low power consumption ((345mW)
  • Low distortion (-53dBc at 1VPP)
  • The RFFC0085 frequency converter delivers a >50% reduction in DC power dissipation and a 55% or greater reduction in printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) area
  • With +3.3VDC, the frequency converter operates in its market segment's smallest package (3x3 mm QFN-16) with higher conversion gain (77dB Total Conversion Gain) and lower DC power dissipation than +5VDC tuners
  • The RFFC0085 frequency converter features 55dB Total Gain Control Range, Low LO-RF Leakage and is ROHS compliant
The frequency converter's small footprint, combined with its industry-lowest external component count, make the RFFC0085 frequency converter the ideal OOB receive circuit solution for space-constrained applications. This enables the cost-effective size reduction of consumer premises equipment (CPE), such as super-thin flat panel HDTVs and PCs.
