CDR chip simplifies XFP module design

Westlake Village, Calif.—Inphi Corp. announced the 3200EC 10-Gbit/s dual Clock Data Recovery (CDR) with Electronic Dispersion Compensation Engine (EDC) for use in 10GBASE-LRM (LRM) XFP modules.

The 3200E single-chip device integrates Inphi's patented analog signal processing EDC technology with XFI-compliant transmit and receive CDRs in a compact 7-mm x 7-mm QFN package. Replacing up to three separate chips, the 3200EC simplifies the design and reduces the bill of materials of an XFP transceiver module.

Used with Inphi's 1348TA Linear Trans-Impedance Amplifier (TIA), the 3200EC reduces development costs and accelerates delivery of standards-compliant 10GBASE-LRM XFP modules.

Availability: Immediately as engineering samples with mass production expected in the second quarter of 2008.
