Credo says new Screaming Eagle 112G Retimer DSP supports 1.6 Tbps

Oct. 6, 2022
The third-generation 112G retimer supports LR+ channels of 40 dB and higher to enable up to 1.6T throughput in a single 23x23-mm package.

Credo (NASDAQ: CRDO) now offers the Screaming Eagle 112G LR (Long Reach) DSP device, which offers retiming capacity of 1.6 Tbps. The device is sampling to qualified customers, according to the company.

The third-generation 112G retimer supports LR+ channels of 40 dB and higher to enable up to 1.6T throughput in a single 23x23-mm package. It also offers a programmable MR (medium reach) mode to reduce SerDes power by 20% for chip-to-module and very short reach (VSR) applications, Credo adds.

The Screaming Eagle 112G LR retimer will support port speeds of 1.6T, 800G, 400G, 100G, and 10G. The variety of port speeds will make the device applicable to hyperscale, enterprise, 5G, and other service provider applications, Credo believes.

“Bandwidth is the catalyst for the digital economy and our end customers need increasing amounts of network speed to support the broad range of data hungry, vertical markets,” said Scott Feller, vice president of marketing at Credo. “Credo’s unique SerDes design approach enables us to deliver industry-leading performance, energy efficiency, and a cost advantage to our customers – such as the hyperscalers – who are managing petabytes of information. Delivering 1.6-Tbps capacity is a necessity as this appetite for networking speeds continues to grow.”

“Data connectivity is no longer just the backbone for the Internet, it has become a critical factor in supporting complex data workloads and analytics for a variety of industries including healthcare, scientific research, finance, government, and manufacturing,” commented Alan Weckel, principal at the 650 group, via a Credo press release. “Credo’s entry to the 1.6-Tbps race, with long-reach capability, is timely as we see immense amounts of data being collected continuously by an array of industrial applications that are driving the need for increased compute, at higher speeds with lower latencies.”
