ARRIS STARLINE MBV3 Series, 3 Output, 1GHZ Amplifier

The ARRIS 1 GHz MBV3 Mini-Bridger Amplifier enables cable operators to increase forward capacity while maintaining current amplifier spacing of existing 750 and 870 MHz systems. The MBV3 is available as a complete unit for greenfield deployments or as a drop-in RF module for 1 GHz upgrades to legacy STARLINE MB-750SH, MB86 and MB87 amplifiers (MB-750SH and MB86 upgrades require the additional MB-15All-KIT assembly kit).


  • 3 Output with 42 dB Gain Forward, 17 dB Gain Return
  • Line-fed AC input voltage range of 38-90 VAC, and 15 amp AC current capability
  • Internal Hi/Lo settable dip-switch to prevent excess loading when using with 90VAC systems
  • Overvoltage protection included standard via FTEC (Fast Transfer Electronic Crowbar)
  • K, A or N splits available to 1003 MHz
  • E-GaN (Gallium Nitride) option provides a 3 dB increase in output level over the standard E-GaAs (Enhanced Gallium Arsenide) technology, for improving amplifier reach
  • Minimize RF drift over temperature via optional level control modules
  • Available in housing with dimensions 15.4 in x 9.6 in x 5.5 in, or as an electronics-only module for upgrading backwards compatible housings
  • Uses JXP attenuators and common STARLINE forward and return equalizers and cable simulators
