Inphi expands 40/100-Gbps portfolio with MZ driver, dual-channel TIA

SEPTEMBER 21, 2010 -- Inphi Corp. has added two products to its 40/100 Gbps coherent product portfolio. The Inphi IN3212SZ Single-Ended Mach-Zehnder Driver and the Inphi 2850TA dual-channel transimpedance amplifier (TIA) are on display at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) 2010 in Turin, Italy.

SEPTEMBER 21, 2010 -- Inphi Corp. has added two products to its 40/100 Gbps coherent product portfolio. The Inphi IN3212SZ Single-Ended Mach-Zehnder Driver and the Inphi 2850TA dual-channel transimpedance amplifier (TIA) are on display at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) 2010 in Turin, Italy.

Now sampling, the Inphi IN3212SZ is a 32-Gbps single-ended Mach-Zehnder driver for 100-Gbps dual-polarization quadrature phase-shift keying (DP-QPSK) and 40-Gbps differential quadrature phase-shift keying (DQPSK) optical transmission applications. The IN3212SZ delivers more than 7.0-Vpp output swing and dissipates 1.6 W, resulting in lower power dissipation at this high-speed, Inphi says. The IN3212SZ is available in a high reliability, hermetically sealed 7x14-mm ceramic land grid array (LGA) surface-mount package.

Meanwhile, the Inphi 2850TA is designed to provide receiver makers with the ability to build 40G and 100G coherent receivers for long-haul, ultra long-haul, and metro regional networks.

"We worked closely with Inphi to design their high-performance 2850TA coherent technology into our receivers for 100G," said Andreas Umbach, Co-Founder and CEO at u²t Photonics AG. "Thanks to Inphi's commitment and collaboration we are now shipping 100-Gbps coherent receivers to large OEMs to deploy in their telecom networks."
