Inphi: Sampling Small Form Factor 64GBaud Quad Coherent TIA and Driver

Prior to ECOC 2018 Inphi introduced the industry’s smallest form factor, lowest power and highest performance 64GBaud quad coherent TIA and driver. Paired up as a chipset, the new TIA and Driver will enable higher density line cards and pluggable solutions that are critical for next generation 400/600G long haul, metro and data center interconnect (DCI) applications.

“Implementations of the upcoming 400ZR standard will require die-level TIAs and Drivers to fit into OSFP and QSFP-DD pluggable modules,” said Andrew Schmitt, lead analyst at Cignal AI.

“Having one supplier for both products gives a module or equipment manufacturer an advantage in development and time to market by reducing the variables in the design and easing bring-up and roll-out, something that is important in the fast-paced networking equipment industry.”
