Qorvo, Inc., a leading provider of RF solutions for mobile applications, infrastructure and aerospace and defense applications, announces a comprehensive 1.8 GHz DOCSIS 4.0 product portfolio. DOCSIS 4.0 provides downstream speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) and increases upstream speeds to 6 Gbps.
Today's entertainment systems and home and business networks require better two-way interaction, driving the need for increased downstream bandwidth and upstream speeds. Building on Qorvo's complete portfolio of DOCSIS 3.1 equipment, the DOCSIS 4.0 portfolio goes a step further, enabling cable operators and MSOs to rapidly upgrade their infrastructure to meet the growing demand for gigabit-class transmission speeds.
Qorvo is the first to offer a complete and off-the-shelf 1.8 GHz portfolio for DOCSIS 4.0. There are 30 products in total, including high output power multipliers, drivers, preamps, return amplifiers, VCAs, DSAs, switches and voltage variable equalizers. Qorvo provides customers with a one-stop trusted platform for DOCSIS 4.0 capabilities.
Diwakar Vishakhadatta, general manager of high performance analog infrastructure products at Qorvo, said: "Qorvo supports customers at every project stage of DOCSIS 4.0. Designers can start developing immediately, using high performance products from a one-stop trusted platform. to optimize its network.”
The flagship device in Qorvo's DOCSIS 4.0 portfolio is the new QPA3315 output amplifier, an ultra-high output hybrid power multiplier. This GaN-based power amplifier (PA) provides excellent RF output power. By offering a full line of 1.8 GHz products with power multipliers, Qorvo helps cable TV equipment manufacturers accelerate their customers' migration to DOCSIS 4.0 while unlocking the value of their existing network infrastructure.
