Inphi to Highlight High-Speed Analog Connectivity Components for Next-Generation Networks at OFC/NFOEC 2010


100G Coherent and 40G DQPSK Linear TIAs Showcased; Eye Monitor Demonstration to Show Testing of High-Speed Serial Interfaces

At OFC/NFOEC 2010, the world’s leading international conference for optical communications and networking professionals, Inphi will highlight its broad portfolio of high-speed analog connectivity components for next-generation networks. Addressing the emerging demands for next-generation 100G, Inphi will also showcase its 2850TA, the industry’s first OIF-compliant 100G coherent transimpedance amplifier (TIA), and its 2251TA, the highest sensitivity linear TIA for 40G DQPSK applications.

Visit Inphi’s Booth #813 to see its Eye Monitor demonstration, which will show testing of high-speed serial interfaces. For design, debugging and production, digital signals are analyzed using a Digital Eye Analyzer (DEA). A DEA is a digital sampling scope that can plot and analyze the eye diagram of the digital signal. Various key parameters for digital signals, such as extinction ratio, optical average power, signal to noise ratio, rise/fall time, jitter, and eye mask compliance are specified by the pertinent standard and should be guaranteed and maintained for reliable operation. DEAs are used to measure these parameters to validate the compliance. Traditional DEAs are expensive and bulky, which limits their use. In our demonstration, we will showcase a low-cost DEA that can benefit field and production testing as well as a lab bench-top tester.

Read Inphi’s newest white paper on “A Low Cost Digital Eye Analyzer.”

The Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) and the National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (NFOEC) technical conference will be held March 21-25 and the Exposition will be held March 23-25.

Inphi will be in Booth #813 at OFC/NFOEC, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, USA.

Since 1985, the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) has provided an annual backdrop for the optical communications field to network and share research and innovations. In 2004, OFC joined forces with the National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (NFOEC) creating the largest and most comprehensive international event for optical communications. By combining an exposition of more than 600 companies, with a unique program of peer-reviewed technical programming and special focused educational sessions, OFC/NFOEC provides an unparalleled opportunity reaching every audience from service providers to optical equipment manufacturers and beyond.

OFC/NFOEC,, is managed by the Optical Society (OSA) and co-sponsored by OSA, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers/Communications Society (IEEE/ComSoc) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Photonics Society. Acting as non-financial technical co-sponsor is Telcordia Technologies, Inc.
