Inphi Corporation Launches PAM4 Chipset Solutions
Aug 14 15
Inphi Corporation has announced the availability of highly integrated, four-level Pulse Amplitude Modulation, or PAM4, chipset solutions for intra-data center and inter-data center cloud interconnects. Inphi announced a family of PAM4 PHY ICs for 40G (IN014020-XL), 50G (IN015050-SF), 100G (IN015025-CA), 400G (IN015025-CD) and a companion linear TIA (IN2860TA) that will enable platform solutions for multi-rate PAM4 interconnects. The foundation of the PAM4 PHY IC solutions is the highly configurable and adaptable InphiNity Core Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Engine and a media agnostic dual mode OmniConnectTMtransmitter architecture that can be targeted to multiple different performance oriented applications for optical and copper based interconnects, while keeping a low power profile. PAM4 modulation has now been recognized as the modulation scheme that will take the industry over the next wave of Ethernet deployments for optical and copper interconnects by doubling the bits per symbol at the same baud rate. By integrating multiple channels along with transmit and receive PAM4 and FEC functions on a single IC, Inphi is able to double the levels of integration available from existing PAM4 IC offerings and scale the solution across multiple rates. Inphi's low-power PAM4 PHY ICs interface with host ASICs that have 10/20/25G NRZ and 56G PAM4 electrical interfaces while bridging to 20-28GBaud PAM4 optics and copper. Other technical features include: InphiNity Core DSP Engine with a unique mixed-mode DSP architecture for high performance, low power applications needing adaptability and configurability; OmniConnect media agnostic dual mode transmitter architecture that supports a variety of media types including DAC cables, backplanes, silicon photonics, single-mode and multi-mode optics; Multiple programmable FEC options with varying levels of pre-FEC BER performance for distances in excess of 10km for DCI inter-datacenter applications; Numerous self-test and loopback modes that allow diagnostic monitoring of channel and system parameters; Eye-scan, samplers and monitors on all receiver interfaces for link margin and stress testing along with GUI and API routines for data and error analytics; Innovative package design that allows denser line cards; Optimizations for next-generation QSFP28-based modules and line card designs; and Single-chip low power solution that allows high scalability across Ethernet data rates. The IN2860TA is a low-power linear 28GBaud TIA for 40/50/100/400G PAM4 modules. This TIA features include: Wide dynamic range to meet the different performance and link requirements for 40/50/100/400G applications; Excellent signal integrity necessary for PAM4 modulation schemes; Adjustable bandwidth for optimization across multiple rates; and Low power and small form factor for next generation QSFP28-based modules.

Inphi Corporation announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $60,672,000, loss from operations of $1,925,000, loss before income taxes of $2,020,000, non-GAAP revenue of $60,672,000, non-GAAP net income of $9,857,000 or $0.24 per diluted share compared to the revenue of $33,922,000, loss from operations of $1,699,000, loss before income taxes of $1,527,000, net income of $2,634,000 or $0.08 per basic and diluted share, non-GAAP revenue of $33,922,000, non-GAAP net income of $2,929,000 or $0.09 per diluted share for the same quarter a year ago. Strong cash flow from operations of $13.5 million, up from a comparable cash flow from operations in first quarter of $12.2 million. Capital expenditures were $3.2 million, which was down slightly from the $3.4 million in first quarter. The company generated $10.3 million of free cash flow in second quarter, which was up from the $8.8 million free cash flow in first quarter.
For the six months period, the company reported revenue of $119,832,000, loss from operations of $7,407,000, loss before income taxes of $7,334,000, net loss of $9,708,000 or $0.26 per basic and diluted share, non-GAAP revenue of $120,240,000, non-GAAP net income of $19,160,000 or $0.47 per diluted share compared to the revenue of $65,111,000, loss from operations of $2,327,000, loss before income taxes of $1,995,000, net income of $1,639,000 or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, non-GAAP revenue of $65,111,000, non-GAAP net income of $5,828,000 or $0.18 per diluted share for the same period a year ago.
For the third quarter ending September 30, 2015, the company expected revenues to be down 3% to up 5% sequentially or in a range of $59.0 million to $63.6 million. Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be approximately 67.9% to 68.5%. GAAP results are expected to be a net loss in a range between $0.83 million to $2.5 million, or $0.02 - $0.06 loss per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income, excluding stock-based compensation expense and expenses related to the Cortina acquisition, is expected to be in the range of $9.1 million to $10.7 million, or $0.22 - $0.26 per diluted share.
The company currently estimating that non-GAAP effective tax rate to be 18% for the year.
