ClariPhy Ships 200G Coherent Optical Chip

ClariPhy has begun commercial shipments of its LightSpeed-II CL20010 coherent system-on-a-chip (SoC) that features configurable data rates from 40G to 200G per wavelength.

The company said its CL20010 leverages a multi-rate and multi-modulation architecture for Software Defined Networking (SDN) at the physical layer. It supports 200G 16QAM modulation on a single wavelength, and that enables 400G dual-carrier super channels in 75GHz of DWDM spectrum.

The chip is implemented in 28nm.

“400G is a top priority for network operators as they look to deploy and scale their Internet infrastructure,” said Nariman Yousefi, CEO of ClariPhy. “Achieving production shipments of the CL20010 represents an important milestone and demonstrates ClariPhy’s unique ability to engineer advanced 200G and beyond coherent optical transport solutions that address stringent carrier requirements for increased performance, bandwidth, speed and reach, while interoperating with today’s transport infrastructure. We have generated a considerable amount of design momentum with OEMs and carrier networks worldwide.”

“We see strong market demand for 200G coherent solutions for applications in optical transport networks, new data centers and cloud-based networks, where advanced performance, network flexibility, and a rich feature set are required,” said Richard Craig, President of Oclaro's Integrated Photonics Business. “We are very excited that ClariPhy’s latest 200G coherent SoC exhibits excellent performance with Oclaro’s analog coherent CFP2 module. Several of our customers have expressed strong interest in solutions based on this combination since it provides them with the speed, efficiency, and scalability needed to meet their increasing bandwidth demands.”
