First DEV Core Function Products Hit The Market




January 23, 2012


DEV America LP, is now shipping the first models in its new CFP (Core Function Products) series, which offers up to 70% cost savings for cable and satellite headends by reducing devices to their core features. Among the first DEV CFP models available are bi-directional RF switches, the DEV 1228 (up to 4x1:8) and the DEV 1236 (up to 2x1:16).

Like all DEV CFP models, the new RF switches offer the same superior RF signal transmission quality for which DEV is known worldwide. DEV’s CFP product series can be offered at substantially lower cost than the standard full-featured versions of DEV products because CFP units come without all the extra power supplies, alarm, monitoring, and sensing features provided in DEV’s standard feature-packed top-of-the-line professional models. DEV first unveiled its CFP series at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC 2011).



Specified for the 10 to 2300 MHz frequency range, DEV’s CFP switches offer excellent RF transmission quality, high isolation, flat frequency response and low ripple. The DEV 1228 supports up to four 1:8 switching units, and the DEV 1236 up to two 1:16 switching units, both models in a compact 1RU chassis. DEV’s CFP series RF switches are designed for cost-sensitive applications in satellite and cable markets.
