Inphi Intros 100G/400G Driver

LOS ANGELES -- Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI), a leading provider of high-speed analog semiconductor solutions for the communications and computing markets, today announced the industry’s first quad linear driver designed for linear transmitters to enable next-generation 100G/400G coherent systems to address the need for higher speed, higher performance networking infrastructure. Inphi’s IN3214SZ quad linear driver will be showcased at Inphi’s OFC/NFOEC booth #1447 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, March 6-8, 2012.

“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.
