SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI), a leading provider of high-speed, mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications and computing markets, today announced general availability of the world's first production ready 100G CMOS PHY/SerDes Gearbox (GB) ICs for next-generation data center, enterprise and service provider line cards.

Built in a mature generic digital CMOS process and using mainstream ball grid array (BGA) packaging techniques, the Inphi GB ICs are built to support volume production while exceeding critical parameters in the IEEE 802.3ba, OIF-28G-VSR and ITU specifications.

Inphi's 100G CMOS PHY/SerDes GB is based on the unique and groundbreaking iPHY™ architecture which is purpose built for client side networking interfaces that push the envelope on power, performance, integration, latency and cost. When compared to available competing SiGe and FPGA solutions, Inphi's GB consumes one-third the power and half the area making it an ideal choice for high density front panel line card implementations. Consuming less than 2.5-W and housed in a 16x16mm package, Inphi's 100G GB is the lowest power and smallest footprint CMOS GB IC in the industry.
