GigOptix Samples its 3rd Gen 100Gbps Ethernet Chipset

GigOptix announced its 3rd generation chipset for 100Gbps Ethernet datacenter and cloud computing applications.

The HXT8204 28Gbps 4 channel VCSEL driver array and HXR8204 28Gbps trans-impedance amplifier (TIA) receiver array enable the next generation of lower power 100Gbps Ethernet SR4 module and Active Optical Cable (AOC) solutions.


The HXR8204 four channel receiver with integrated TIA provides 60uAPP input sensitivity at 28Gbps with 10-12 Bit Error Rate (BER), AGC and ATC, and a limiting post amplifier stage. The HXT8204 four channel VCSEL driver supports modulation and average VCSEL currents up to 10mA with a dedicated BURNIN capability up to 15mA average current. The 1MHz I2C interface enables full control of all driver functions including input equalization, output peaking and peaking duration, Signal Detect and Squelch, channel polarity inversion, diagnostics such as average current and temperature monitoring as wells as user maskable Interrupts and VCSEL voltage supervisory functions.

“GigOptix is proud to announce our latest 100Gbps Ethernet chipset for the Datacom Ethernet market, which is expected to show 60% CAGR over the next seven years,” said Tom Kapucija, Datacom Marketing Director. “Our third generation solution enables a 20% typical reduction in power dissipation over our earlier chipset solutions without sacrificing performance or robustness. In addition, in certain applications such as Active Optical Cables we see up to 30% power reduction.”
