Abstract: For SU( N ) superconformal QCD we perform a three-loop calculation of the cusp anomalous dimension for a generalized Maldacena-Wilson operator, using HQET formalism. We obtain an expression that is valid at generic geometric and internal angles and finite gauge group rank N . For equal and opposite angles this expression vanishes, proving that at these points the cusp becomes BPS. From its small angle expansion we derive the corresponding Bremsstrahlung function at three loops, matching the matrix model prediction given in terms of derivatives of the Wilson loop on the ellipsoid. Finally, we discuss possible scenarios at higher loops, with respect to the existence of a universal effective coupling in an integrable subsector of the model.
