GREENSBORO, NC – May 30, 2017 – Qorvo® (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, has further expanded its CATV portfolio with five new products designed to improve upstream/downstream capabilities in customer premises equipment and significantly enhance the consumer broadband experience. Qorvo now offers more than 65 DOCSIS 3.1-ready components — the highest number of any supplier in the industry.
CableLabs® reports that the most common, data-intensive application across the globe is video streaming, which requires the most bandwidth of any type of broadband use.1 As operators deploy DOCSIS 3.1, they will be able to expand broadband network performance such as throughput and latency to meet consumer demand.
The new solutions from Qorvo leverage the company's industry-leading gallium arsenide (GaAs) and Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technologies to deliver superior linearity, output power and reliability in wired broadband applications. These features enable multiple system operators (MSOs) to boost signal performance within a structure without added distortion and noise.
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 dramatically 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, 3321) and the QPC3614 attenuator are available for sampling now.
Qorvo's broadband cable solutions will be showcased at ANGA COM 2017 (#ANGACOM2017) in Cologne, Germany, May 30-June 1, in booth 7/E/B3. To learn more about the company's complete portfolio of CATV products visit: http://www.qorvo.com/applications/network-infrastructure/broadband/catv.
