15 December 2003 Westlake Village, CA Lightwave-Inphi is introducing a low cost quad flat no-lead (QFN) plastic package version of its 13-GHz high speed digital logic devices. The new high speed logic (HSL) solutions deliver unsurpassed performance in a very small form factor package, only 3-mm².

"Commercial and military equipment manufacturers looking for the ultimate in performance from broadband devices that occupy very little board space will find our new 13600 series parts ideal for a wide range of applications," said Paul Washkewicz, vice president of marketing at Inphi. "The availability of our widely accepted HSL solutions in low-cost QFN plastic packages gives our customers an extensive competitive advantage in applications ranging from bench test and measurement equipment and ATE to broadband optical and narrow-band military communications."

The HSL devices in a QFN package provide system manufacturers with sophisticated logic building blocks that offer enhanced functionality and higher levels of integration. For price-sensitive higher volume optical equipment markets, such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet, the QFN family offers greater price reductions with volume than is possible with metal or ceramic packages.

All of these devices are designed precisely to maintain their superior performance over a range of temperature and supply variation. Detailed, measured results and package specifications for each of these devices is available online at the Inphi web site:

Price and availability
The complete lines of HSL components are available for immediate purchase. All parts are also available on an evaluation board for testing purposes. Pricing for the plastic QFN products are up to 40% lower cost than Inphi's equivalent ceramic LGA devices in quantities of 5000 or more.

Table 1 shows the variety of functions now shipping in the plastic QFN family of devices.
