Semtech Announces Demonstration of Groundbreaking 200G per Lane FiberEdge® Physical Medium Dependent (PMD) Chipset at ECOC 2022

New chipset paves the way to 200G PAM4 per lane technology deployment to enable 1.6T and 3.2T optical module deployments

BASEL, Switzerland at ECOC 2022, Sept. 19, 2022 Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading global supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, today announced its groundbreaking demonstration of 200G per lane technology utilizing its latest industry-leading FiberEdge® PMD chip developments. Semtech will demonstrate the chipset at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) 2022 in its demonstration of a 200Gbps PAM4 signal over a 2 km single mode optical fiber link. The PMD chips also utilizes Semtech’s latest FiberEdge developments of a 200G PAM4 quad linear transimpedance amplifier (TIA) and a 200G PAM4 single channel linear EML driver.

“Semtech’s FiberEdge platform has once again set the bar in data center innovation, being one of the first innovators in the 200G per lane space,” said Nicola Bramante, senior product line manager for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “Demonstrating a fully operational 2 km link at 200Gbps rate represents a major milestone for the 200G per lane technology, which is expected to dramatically reduce the cost of very high-speed networking and to enable 1.6T and 3.2T optical module deployments.”

The FiberEdge 200G per lane PMD chipsets offer best in class bandwidth, noise and driver output swing with exceptional linearity and low distortion.

The FiberEdge 200G solutions will be demonstrated at the Semtech booth #322 during ECOC 2022, Sept. 18-22, in Basel, Switzerland. Register here.
