BRISTOL, U.K. -- Nanotech Semiconductor Limited (“Nanotech”), a fabless IC company specializing in advanced Analog & Mixed-Signal ICs for fiber based Communications applications, today announced its latest breakthrough in CMOS TIA design.

Building on over a decade of Worlds firsts in pure-CMOS, this new family of 2.5Gb and 10Gb TIAs offers at least 3-4dB more Sensitivity at each data rate Vs. the best existing solutions, which are typically in expensive SiGe processes.

The NT25L55 offers –33dBm typically at 2.5Gbps, with a standard PIN diode, and with only 33mA current consumption. The NT25L55 can therefore be used to replace APD based solutions in GPON networks, offering dramatic cost and power savings.

The NT28L50 and NT28L51 offer –25dBm typically at 10Gbps, again with only 33mA consumption. The NT28L50 is intended for upcoming SFP+ modules, while the NT28L51 is tailored to LRM applications. Both ICs are believed to offer not only by far the highest performance in the world, but also are the World’s first CMOS 10Gbps TIAs.
