Preliminary Data Sheet
BIPOLAR ANALOG INTEGRATED CIRCUIT
5 V AGC AMPLIFIER + VIDEO AMPLIFIER
The PC3231GV is silicon monolithic IC designed for use as AGC amplifier for digital CATV, cable modem and digital terrestrial
systems. This IC consists of gain control amplifier and video amplifier.
The package is 8-pin SSOP (shrink small outline package) suitable for surface mount.
This IC is manufactured using our 30 GHz fmax UHS0 (Ultra High Speed Process) silicon bipolar process. This process uses silicon
nitride passivation film. This material can protect chip surface from external pollution and prevent corrosion/migration. Thus, this IC
has excellent performance, uniformly and reliability.
