Qorvo adds control products for DOCSIS 3.1 to CATV portfolio

Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC and Hillsboro, OR, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications) has rounded out its CATV product portfolio to include two new control products – a digital step attenuator (DSA) and RF absorptive single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch - designed for DOCSIS 3.1 cable networking, giving cable operators greater network design flexibility to enhance upstream and downstream bandwidth while reducing power consumption.

"The addition of these high-performance control products to the industry's most comprehensive CATV product portfolio creates a one-stop-shop for DOCSIS 3.1 CATV networks," says Kellie Chong, director of CATV and Broadband Access products. "This enables Qorvo to simplify our customers' efforts related to design and production while reducing their time-to-market."

The new control components use silicon-on-insulator (SOI) process technologies with what is claimed to be proven performance and reliability for network control applications. Operating from 45MHz to 2GHz, the QPC3624 is a 6-bit DSA with high linearity and low insertion loss that also allows glitch-free attenuation and faster switching speed. The QPC3024 RF absorptive switch operates from 5MHz to 3GHz and allows fast switching speed of 250ns typical performance. Both the QPC3624 and QPC3024 are DOCSIS 3.1-ready.

Samples and evaluation boards for both the QPC3624 and QPC3024 are available now, with limited production release in October and November, respectively. Both products are being showcased in booth #2003 at the Society of Cable Television's (SCTE) Cable-Tec Expo in Philadelphia, PA, USA (26-29 September).
