Demand for Speed, Capacity, Performance and Reliability

There’s a demand for greater cable speeds and higher capacity data transmission with everyone consuming video, music, games and online publications. And it’s left North American cable operators in a quandary about how to enhance their networks to meet the requirements without degrading signal integrity and performance. Enter gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier technology, which exhibits the required linearity, thermal characteristics and efficiency to satisfy hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) performance requirements and deliver reliable community antenna television (CATV) operation.

This post is an excerpt from the Design Summit series of Qorvo webinars that highlight vital improvements in industry sectors where evolutionary advances are powering next-generation technologies.
