SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC), a global leader in high-speed optical transport for datacenter and telecommunication applications, embedded Power Architecture® processing, and storage solutions today announced interoperability between its QT2025 10-Gigabit per second (Gbps) physical layer device (PHY) with electronic dispersion compensation (EDC) and Gennum Corporation’s (TSX:GND) GN3052 ROSA for 10GBASE-LRM applications. The announcement is the latest development in preparing 10GBASE-LRM technology for high speed datacenter connectivity.

Together, these products show more than 6dB of OMA sensitivity margin over operating conditions, PCB trace lengths and IEEE 803.2aq 10GBASE-LRM stressors, delivering significant performance advantages including best-in-class sensitivity and very high gain. Gennum’s SFP+ ROSA and AMCC’s QT2025 have also demonstrated interoperability in SFP+, X2, XPAK and XENPAK applications.

“AMCC’s EDC and 10GbE PHY technology provided key elements in achieving outstanding 10GBASE-LRM results in interoperability testing with Gennum’s ROSA,” said Gary Beauchamp, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Optical Products, Gennum Corporation. “Gennum's GN3052 ROSA provides Automatic Gain Control (AGC) functionality specifically designed for emerging applications utilizing EDC such as 10GBASE-LRM. Gennum's unique AGC architecture in the GN3052 provides the industry’s best stressed sensitivity when used with leading EDC solutions.”
