Qorvo Expands DOCSIS 3.1 Range

Four new amplifiers and digital step attenuator designed to boost improve broadband quality

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.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
