Inphi Announces Sampling of Industry’s First 45GBaud Linear Coherent Product Family at ECOC 2014

Latest Industry Milestone for Coherent Systems for Next-Generation Long Haul and Metro Networking Infrastructure, 400G and Beyond

SANTA CLARA, Calif., September 22, 2014 – Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI), a leading provider of high-speed, mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications, data center and computing markets, today announced its new 45GBaud Linear Coherent Product Family, the industry’s first linear ICs enabling 400G coherent solutions for next-generation metro to long haul applications. The initial product offerings includes Inphi’s IN4514SZ, a high-performance octal linear differential to single-ended Mach-Zehnder Modulator Driver and Inphi’s IN4550TA, a quad linear TIA/VGA Amplifier. Inphi’s new 45GBaud Linear Coherent Product Family will be showcased at Inphi’s ECOC 2014 booth #410 in Cannes, France, September 21-25, 2014.

With the ever-growing demand for more bandwidth, service providers and data center operators are actively deploying 100G and 200G now for long haul and metro, while development accelerates for the next-generation higher capacity. Inphi’s latest coherent products enable 400G on a single line card slot, which again, doubles the fiber total bandwidth capacity of the industry state-of-the-art 32GBaud systems of today. Inphi’s IN4514SZ and IN4550TA are designed to take network infrastructure to the next level, enabling the critical implementation of more complex and flexible modulation formats for 400G coherent systems in the long haul and metro networks.

“Network operators are pressured to build next-generation networks that can manage the increasing traffic demands, while keeping the equipment costs down,” said Richard Ward, director, Optical Interconnectat Inphi. “Inphi’s 45GBaud coherent linear products address these market demands for higher speeds, more bandwidth and greater capacity in network infrastructure. We are proud to present an industry first with our 45GBaud linear family as it further establishes Inphi’s market leadership to enable dynamic, next-generation optical networking.”
