Inphi Surpasses 1 Million Mark in 100G Coherent Amplifiers and Linear Drivers Shipment

Company Milestone Demonstrates Industry Leadership Position in High-Speed Connectivity Solutions

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 7, 2016 – Inphi Corporation (NYSE: IPHI), a leading provider of high-speed connectivity solutions, today announced that it has surpassed shipment of more than one million 100G coherent trans-impedance amplifiers and linear driver ICs for Long Haul, Metro, and Data Center Interconnect applications.

The emergence of cloud-based services has dramatically increased the need for moving data centers closer to the end users and connecting them with multi terabits per second optical pipes. The cornerstone of Inphi’s optical solutions is to deliver best-in-class coherent amplifiers and linear drivers to enable quantum leaps in bandwidth with advanced modulation formats. Inphi pioneered several firsts in this area, including the first mass production of 100G coherent amplifiers and modulator linear drivers. These technology advancements enabled the first deployment of 100G Long Haul coherent systems in 2010, the first deployment of 200G Metro coherent systems in 2014, and the first deployment of 100G pluggable modules in 2015.

“Today’s announcement underlines Inphi’s commitment and leadership to delivering massive bandwidth for the interconnected world of tomorrow, which helps realizing our vision of “the Cloud is the Network™”,” said Loi Nguyen, founder, senior vice president, Optical Interconnect at Inphi. “We are excited to hit the one million milestone mark and would like to thank all our customers, partners, and employees that have contributed to our success and leadership. We look forward to continue pushing the envelope to deliver ever faster optical interconnect products for next-generation of high capacity networks.”

“The market for 100G ports has grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 260% since its start in 2010. Inphi components have been key to enabling the development of this market. Today, 100G links are being deployed around the world based on Inphi’s technology,” said Heidi Adams, senior research director, Transport Networks at IHS.
