Qorvo To Exhibit DOCSIS 3.1 Porfolio At Cable-Tec Expo
Qorvo will showcase its portfolio of DOCSIS 3.1 products at the upcoming SCTE 2015 Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans. The next-generation standard for CATV systems, Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) 3.1 enables higher bandwidth to support increasingly data-intensive services such as high-definition TV and video-on-demand.
Qorvo offers more than 60 DOCSIS 3.1-ready products, including pre-driver gain blocks, push-pull and power doubler amplifiers, attenuators and switches. These use high-performance process technologies, including GaN HEMT technology.
"As cable operators migrate their systems over to DOCSIS 3.1, companies like Qorvo deliver the end-to-end backbone to make this transition go smoothly," said Jeff Heynen, research director, Broadband Access and Pay TV, IHS Technology. "It's important that all the key components are ready; growth will be notable beginning later this year and next year as DOCSIS 3.1 deploys, offering customers increasingly higher speeds."
"Qorvo is helping cable multi-system operators (MSOs) deploy infrastructure upgrades and achieve best-in-class DOCSIS 3.1 networking with the industry's broadest portfolio of high-performance DOCSIS 3.1 products," said Gorden Cook, general manager of Qorvo's Transport business unit. "Our DOCSIS 3.1 product portfolio supports transmission capacities of up to 1 Gbps upstream and a maximum of 10 Gbps downstream."
Qorvo's DOCSIS 3.1 forward path amplifiers operate from 45MHz to 1.2GHz, with high output (capable of 74dBmV composite power); low distortion levels (lower than 70dBc); and good input and output return loss (-20dB typical). Qorvo's reverse path amplifiers operate up to 300MHz with integrated attenuator and power down function.
Qorvo's DOCSIS 3.1 products are packaged in SOT-115J, multi-chip module, and standard monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) packaging such as QFN, SOT89, or SOIC. Qorvo's MMIC products include gain amplifiers, low equivalent input noise current (EINC) trans-impedance amplifiers (TIA), attenuators, switches, filters, and complete optical receivers for RF over glass (RFoG) and passive optical network (PON) applications.
Qorvo will be exhibiting at the SCTE 2015 Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans, LA, from October 14, 2015, through October 16, 2015.
