WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. -- Inphi® Corporation (, the world leader in analog performance and signal integrity, today announced the 3200EC 10 Gbps Dual Clock Data Recovery (CDR) with Electronic Dispersion Compensation Engine (EDC) for use in 10GBASE-LRM (LRM) XFP modules. The feature-rich single-chip device integrates Inphi's patented analog signal processing EDC technology with XFI-compliant transmit and receive CDRs in a compact 7mm x 7mm QFN package. Replacing up to three separate chips, the 3200EC simplifies the design and reduces the bill of materials of an XFP transceiver module. Used with Inphi's field-proven 1348TA Linear Trans-Impedance Amplifier (TIA), the 3200EC offers a total solution to reduce development costs and accelerate delivery of standards-compliant 10GBASE-LRM XFP modules to the market. The 3200EC is the latest addition to Inphi's industry-leading PhyOptik™ product family. See Inphi at OFC, Booth 719.

"Currently, there are no XFP solutions for 10 Gigabit Ethernet backhaul on the installed base of legacy multimode fiber. The 10GBASE-LRM standard was specified to solve this problem, but has previously not been available in this form factor due to its unique combination of power, performance and small size," said John Monson, vice president of PhyOptik marketing at Inphi Corporation. "The 3200EC has been specially designed to enable this new generation of Ethernet connectivity for enterprise switch customers."
