The new 100G chipset features Semtech's FiberEdge™ platform and MultiPhy's FlexPhy platform to deliver a fully optimized, seamless PHY/PMD solution for QSFP28 optical modules complying with the IEEE 100GBASE-DR standard. The 100G Ethernet DR single lambda specification is key to the implementation of next-generation data centers.
The FiberEdge GN3289 is a 56GBd linear AGC ROSA for 100G Ethernet operation using PAM4 modulation. It is based on Semtech's leadership TIA architecture optimized for low group delay variation and high linearity designed to enable cost-effective 100G modules.
The FiberEdge GN1189 is a 56GBd modulator driver for PAM4 applications. Its wide bandwidth and low total harmonic distortion (THD) enable high quality transmitters for best in class link performance. Its low power dissipation helps reduce overall module power and simplifies module and system thermal management.
"Single wavelength 100G is the ultimate solution for 100G in the data center, offering four times of fundamental cost improvement over existing 4x25Gbps solutions. This will be the preferred technology for high volume applications in Cloud and colocation data centers," said
Hyperscale data center deployments amplify market demand for higher bandwidth and lower cost with hundreds of thousands of servers located in a single site. These build-outs are pushing system developers to move rapidly from 25G to 100G optical signaling solutions, in order to capture unprecedented savings in actual cost per bit. Per bi-directional link, the single lambda solution reduces the number of lasers required from eight to two, radically lowering the cost for 100G implementation.
"Semtech's FiberEdge platform of high-performance linear PMDs is uniquely positioned to drive a new generation of data center and wireless network build-outs. Semtech's optical solutions are truly the best-in-class products that deliver
market leading performance with the low power consumption profile that the market demands," stated
MultiPhy's FlexPhy platform is a low-power, high performance, DSP-based gearbox that 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.
"Enabling the migration to 100G is key to supporting the exponential growth in capacity and bandwidth in data center and Cloud applications," said
