Inphi Intros 100G/400G Driver
“Today’s 10G, 40G, and 100G networks typically use basic amplitude or phase modulation signaling techniques, but not both, to encode electronic data onto optical signals. In order to achieve higher performance and higher speed, we believe more complex modulation schemes, in which both amplitude and phase are modulated will be necessary. Such complex modulation formats are best implemented with linear transmitters. Inphi’s IN3214SZ is the industry’s first 32Gbps integrated quad linear driver for linear transmitter architectures and is designed to enable more complex modulation formats to be implemented,” said Jag Bolaria, senior analyst at the Linley Group.
