Alcor™

Industry leading PAM4 platform solution to accelerate the industry’s transition from 25G to 100G per wavelength.
The Alcor™ PAM4 DSP platform is based on Inphi’s market-leading Porrima™ PAM4 DSP platform and includes Inphi’s PAM4 DSP technology, Linear TIA and Driver to provide even higher levels of integration and lower power for high-performance hyperscale data center, cloud computing and emerging AI applications. Designed to accelerate the industry’s transition from 25G to 100G per wavelength, the Alcor platform offers an enhanced feature set with integrated 56Gbaud laser drivers that enable less than 3.5W QSFP28, DSFP and SFP-DD optical modules. The new PAM4 DSP also offers integrated driver options to address a broad range of implementations for optical interconnects. The foundation of Inphi’s Alcor platform is a highly configurable DSP engine that is field proven and qualified in multiple hyperscale data center networks.

Key Features
