Clariphy announced a new 16nm silicon platform designed to be the foundation for future 400G coherent DSP designs.

“Coherent metro and datacenter inter-connect (DCI) network deployment is ramping now. This is a more cost sensitive market; CFP2-ACO and merchant DSPs are key technologies that will enable deployment in these new metro and DCI applications,” said Andrew Schmitt, lead analyst at Cignal AI. “ClariPhy’s LightSpeed-II 200G Coherent DSP along with its CFP2-ACO module partners are demonstrating solutions today that designers can use now.”
