Semtech and MultiPhy Announce Demonstration of 100G Single Lambda Chipset with EML Optics at OFC 2018
SAN DIEGO at The OFC Exhibition ,
The demonstration is comprised of multiple 2 km links using Semtech’s FiberEdge™ chipsets and MultiPhy’s FlexPhy devices driving EML optics. Semtech’s FiberEdge GN1860 EML driver with high output swing and linearity, Semtech’s GN3289 Linear ROSA with GN1089, a high-performance, low-noise linear transimpedance (TIA) amplifier, and FlexPhy are designed to provide a cohesive solution for implementing 100G single lambda interconnects.
“Semtech’s FiberEdge chipset has once again set the bar for 100G Single Lambda technology. Demonstrating fully operational 2km links with low-cost EML optics represents a major step forward for the 100G single lambda market,” said Gary Beauchamp, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Semtech’s
MultiPhy’s FlexPhy platform is a low-power, high performance, DSP utilizing best-in-class signal processing technology to enable next generation Data Center and Wireless networks. The device’s mission mode adapts a 4x25Gbps NRZ CAUI4 host bus to a single 100G PAM4 IO pair on the line side. The device is packaged in a low profile BGA that features high-speed IO placement specifically optimized for use in QSFP28 modules.
“100G single lambda will dominate next generation data center networks. Delivering a complete solution that includes DSP/PMD provides faster integration and time to market to our customers, and accelerates the adoption of this new technology," said Avi Shabtai, Chief Executive Officer of MultiPhy. "PAM4-based DSPs enable a paradigm shift in the optical data center connectivity market that leverages single wavelength processing capabilities to simplify optics and optimize cost and power.”
