RF company Qorvo has expanded its CATV portfolio with five new DOCSIS 3.1-ready products designed to improve upstream/downstream capabilities in customer premises equipment and to enhance the consumer broadband experience.
The new solutions use the company’s GaAs and Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technologies to deliver high linearity, output power and reliability in wired broadband applications. These features enable multiple system operators to boost signal performance within a structure without added distortion and noise, says Qorvo.
Gorden Cook, general manager of Qorvo’s transport business said: “We continue to invest in cable products that enable operators to provide the best possible broadband experience to their customers. The technical advancements in these new products demonstrate why Qorvo is the leading supplier of high-power, high-performance components for DOCSIS 3.1 networks.”
The launch includes four DOCSIS 3.1 upstream amplifiers that offer high gain and best-in-class linearity and support up to 16-port residential amplifiers, voice over internet protocol (VoIP) and multimedia over coax alliance (MoCA) applications.
It also includes a new broadband digital step attenuator that supports fast (<500ns), glitch-free switching for improved video quality. Each of the new products is designed to support the ever-increasing consumption of higher speed home data.
The high-performance amplifiers (QPB2318, 2328, 3311, 2231) and the QPC3614 attenuator are available for sampling now.
Qorvo’s broadband cable solutions will be exhibited at ANGA COM 2017 in Cologne, Germany, May 30-June 1.
