ADI is targeting next-gen cable access networks with the purchase of OneTree Microdevices, a California-based GaAs and GaN amplifier vendor.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) is acquiring OneTree Microdevices Inc., a privately-held fabless RF company based in Santa Rosa, California.
OneTree is focused on solving DOCSIS 3.1 challenges for cable markets. The last product they launched was in 2015, when the company launched its OTM3228 MMIC that it claimed delivered "GaN-level output performance while providing higher gain."
Completing the signal chain
ADI, which has mixed-signal products for cable access from data converters to clocking and control/power conditioning, wants to add OneTree’s GaAs and GaN amplifier portfolio to complete the signal chain for next-generation cable access networks.
“OneTree’s expertise aligns with ADI’s strategic focus on GaN technology and extends ADI’s broad portfolio of high performance, RF and microwave signal chain solutions for infrastructure, defense and instrumentation markets,” said Greg Henderson, vice president, RF and Microwave Business, Analog Devices, in a press statement.
