    Greensboro, NC, May 14, 2024 – Qorvo® (Nasdaq: QRVO), a leading global provider of connectivity and power solutions, today announced the industry’s first single-chip variable inverse cable equalizer. This groundbreaking IC is designed specifically for CATV application developers seeking to upgrade their networks to the advanced DOCSIS® 4.0 standard. DOCSIS 4.0 technology enables the next generation of broadband over cable’s hybrid fiber coax (HFC) networks, delivering symmetrical multi-gigabit speeds* while supporting high reliability, high security and low latency.

    The new QPC7330 streamlines the field installation process by eliminating the need for “plug-ins” or complicated circuitry to implement the input cable simulator function. Qorvo’s QPC7330 can be programmed via I2C which enables it to become part of the automated set-up routine. This leads to significant cost savings by reducing installation time and eliminates the need for extra accessories to be carried and inventoried by the technician. With its innovative design, the QPC7330 offers a stable, repeatable and adjustable solution, significantly simplifying operations and lowering labor costs associated with complex setups.

    Bob Simmers, senior marketing manager for Qorvo’s Infrastructure business, said “The QPC7330 offers customers the simplest variable inverse cable equalizer solution for upgrading their CATV designs to DOCSIS 4.0. By replacing alternatives that require fixed values switched or unwieldy combinations of attenuators and standard equalizers, Qorvo provides a more elegant, efficient and cost-effective choice.”

    Key Features of the QPC7330:

    The QPC7330 is sampling now with production quantities available August 2024. Qorvo will introduce the QPC7330 at ANGA COM 2024 (#ANGACOM2024) from May 14 to 16, in Cologne, Germany.
