Inphi samples smallest SMT quad linear driver for coherent applications, targeting 100G/200G

Inphi Corp of Santa Clara, CA, USA (a provider of high-speed mixed-signal ICs for communications, computing and data-center markets) has announced the sampling of a new product in its 32GBaud linear coherent product family.

The IN3217SZ is a quad linear differential to single-ended Mach-Zehnder (MZ) modulator driver in a surface-mount technology (SMT) package, extending the product portfolio by utilizing cost-effective packaging for higher-volume 100G/200G coherent long-haul and metro optical interconnect applications.

With a 14mm x 9mm small-form-factor package, the IN3217SZ directly interfaces to lithium niobate (LiNbO3) or indium phosphide (InP) MZ modulators, in target systems from line-cards, 4x5 modules, or CFP or CFP2 modules. The new low-power design, together with what is claimed to be industry-leading performance, enables next-generation long-haul and metro networks to address highly integrated line-card designs and advanced pluggable modules.

"With the widespread adoption of coherent technology underway, devices such as the IN3217SZ enable the higher densities and lower-cost solutions the 100G/200G applications require," comments Andrew Schmitt, principal analyst, Carrier Transport Networking at Infonetics Research.

"The networking market needed new lower-power linear modulator drivers in smaller package footprints to address the high-volume next-generation applications," says Lian Zhao, Inphi's product line manager, Optical Interconnect. "The IN3217SZ expands the Inphi product portfolio again to address the latest market demands for high-performance, long-haul applications and high-density and volume metro applications for 100G/200G coherent systems."
