Drop Amplifiers

The purpose of this specification is to recommend mechanical and electrical standards for broadband radio frequency (RF) devices whose primary purpose is to amplify signals presented to an input port and deliver the amplified signals to one or more output ports. The devices are also required to pass signals in a different range of frequencies in the return direction and, optionally, may provide amplification of such return signals. The specification’s scope is limited to 75 ohm devices whose ports are provided with F connectors. The most common use for such devices is on-premises RF signal distribution.
