GigPeak Announces Availability of Low Power Consumption, 32Gbps Linear Coherent TIA

Cost-competitive, dual channel 32Gbps Linear TIA now being sampled by key optical module suppliers for 100Gbps coherent, long-haul and metro applications

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 20, 2016GigPeak, Inc. (NYSE MKT:GIG), a leading innovator of semiconductor ICs and software solutions for high-speed connectivity and high-quality video compression over the network and the cloud, today announced the availability for wider-base customer sampling of its GX32222, 32Gbps dual channel linear TIA / VGA trans-impedance amplifier (TIA) designed for use in 100Gbps to 200Gbps DWDM optical receivers used for both long-haul and metro telecom applications. This fundamental TIA design enables its use in a number of currently deployed fiber optic receiver modules of 100Gbps and 200Gbps coherent optical systems, as well as future 400Gbps and beyond applications. The GX32222 is now available for general sampling, after successful completion of initial sampling by a selected number of customers.

GigPeak’s GX32222 TIA offers a low-power consumption and cost advantage to competitive solutions for the ever-growing 100G metro and long-haul WDM applications. Ovum projects those 100G port shipments to continue growing with accelerated compound annual growth rate of 25-30% as of 2016 and over the next 4 years till 2020, while being augmented with next generations of higher speed coherent single wavelength solutions, for both line cards and pluggable modules.

"We are happy to see the successful sampling and evaluation of our newly released GX32222, as we offer a performant, cost attractive amplifier to support our telecom customer requirements. The introduction of this product substantiates our already well accepted GPPO connectorized and SMT drivers for 100Gbps and 200Gbps applications, allowing us to provide our customers with ICs for transmit and receive applications,” stated Dr. Koichi Murata, Sr. Director of Marketing for Telecom Products at GigPeak, Inc.

The key features of the GX32222 TIA include, among others:
