AMCC introduces 40 Gbps Eye Diagram from SiGe-based interface device

May 2, 2001
May 2, 2001--Applied Micro Circuits Corp., a provider of high-bandwidth silicon connectivity solutions for optical networks, announced what the company claims to be the first demonstration of a 40 Gbps eye diagram from a silicon germanium (SiGe)-based interface device.

Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (NASDAQ:AMCC), a provider of high-bandwidth silicon connectivity solutions for optical networks, announced what the company claims to be the first demonstration of a 40 Gbps eye diagram from a silicon germanium (SiGe)-based interface device exhibited at the company's fully functional customer demo lab.

Originally demonstrated at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference, the 40 Gbps eye diagram data is based on AMCC's first 4:1 Mux prototype, operating at a 39.2 Gbps data rate. This technology will be implemented into AMCC's 16:1/1:16 OC-768 Mux/DeMux devices, which will be available this year. The Mux prototype was developed from the same wafer as AMCC's S76800, a commercially available 40 Gbps SiGe transimpedance amplifier, introduced in March.

The 40 Gbps eye diagram can be viewed at AMCC's new customer demo lab located at the company's headquarters in San Diego. The lab demonstrates the capability of AMCC's products to take data and aggregate it up to the optical domain as speeds increase. AMCC's complete solution offering is highlighted through an actual link transporting data from OC-3 to OC-192 using devices from all of AMCC's design centers including Andover, Mass. and Minneapolis, Minn. The lab is utilized for customer specific demos, meetings with partners, training sessions for field application engineers and AMCC's sales force. Future plans for the showroom include the implementation of a computer-based training program.
