Inphi TIAs are the essential building blocks for the world’s fastest service provider and data center optical networks.
Inphi introduced the industry’s first TIA and provides a wide range of TIAs for line and client side fiber optic receivers to meet system needs from 100G to 600G, for all network reaches. Inphi TIAs take a weak electrical signal from the photodiode in the optical receiver, clean it up and amplify it before transmitting it to the digital signal processing (DSP) unit. Our portfolio includes linear TIAs for long haul coherent receivers and limiting TIAs for shorter range NRZ based receivers.
Inphi’s motto, Think fast™, is based on Inphi’s heritage of being first to market with the lowest power, highest performance electronic components. Inphi’s TIAs embody our motto and our heritage.
The secret to our success with these amplifiers is our delivery of world class linear modulation. This linear modulation provides up to 32 times more electrical data packed per optical symbol when compared to limiting technologies of the past. Unlike those limiting TIAs of yesteryear, today’s components require highly-engineered relationships and tradeoffs between power, performance and cost.
Since pioneering its first TIAs for 100G long haul and metro networks, Inphi has continually applied its linear design techniques to new generations of products for networks of all types. Today, Inphi is again leading the transition to higher speed networks with multiple TIA design wins for 400G and 600G long haul and metro networks as well as for 200G and 400G networks inside and between data centers.
