MultiPhy, Ltd. Key Developments

Semtech Corporation and Multiphy, Ltd. Enter into Agreement on 100Gbps optical module solution

Semtech Corporation and MultiPhy Ltd., have entered into a strategic agreement aimed at accelerating the introduction of a 100Gbps single wavelength optical module solution. As part of the agreement, Semtech is now one of the largest shareholder of MultiPhy. With MultiPhy's advanced-node CMOS DSP and Semtech's PMD (laser driver and TIA), the companies plan to offer a complete PHY and PMD solution to enable 100G modules requiring only single lane optics setting a new benchmark for cost and performance of 100G links and emerging 400G applications. The Semtech/MultiPhy 100Gbps per wavelength technology is expected to drive significant cost reductions for datacenters by reducing the number of components inside 100G optical modules. The new 100Gbps per wavelength PAM4 technology should enable the elimination of parallel optical solutions and MUX and DEMUX components used in duplex fiber solutions, requiring just a single laser and optical receiver for each optical module. In addition to substantially reducing the BOM cost, this solution should reduce the manufacturing complexity and enable smaller module form factors, which are essential for enabling increased port density in datacenters. In contrast, current PAM4 solutions in the industry are based on 50Gbps per wavelength technology, which still requires two lasers and optical MUX and DEMUX components to build a 100G optical module.
