Fujitsu Intros High-Speed, 28nm CMOS Converters

Fujitsu announced the first in a new family of 8-bit, power-efficient, 28nm CMOS analog-to-digital converters (ADC) addresses the need for large-scale global deployment of single-wavelength, 100Gbps optical transport systems, and provides a solution for future short-range optical and backplane interconnects.

Fujitsu's 28nm ADC supports sampling rates from 55 to 70 GSa/s (billions of samples per second) with scalable analog bandwidth.

Fujitsu cited a number of additional appliations, including inter- and intra-datacenter optical links for 100Gbps Ethernet, as well as high-speed electrical interconnects across PCB or backplane channels.
