Inphi Demos 2.4 Tbps Line Card Tech -- QSFP28

Inphi is demoing interoperability of its second generation Tri-Rate PHY/SerDes Gearbox (GB) ICs with Luxtera and TE Connectivity (TE) optical modules at this week's Interop in Las Vegas.

Inphi is showcasing its new Tri-Rate IN112510-LD 100G GB interoperating with a Silicon Photonics QSFP28 module from Luxtera, as well as VCSEL based QSFP28 from TE to highlight the availability of the QSFP28 form factor using different optics technologies. The new GB ICs with Inphi's Tri-Rate foundation enables seamless support of 10G, 40G and 100G Ethernet and OTN on a single line card.

"Our next-generation Tri-Rate PHY/SerDes GB ICs interoperating with industry leading QSFP28 technology from Luxtera and TE demonstrates that the technology of the future is now available for designers to successfully build ultra-high density line cards for hyper scale data center systems," said Siddharth Sheth, vice president of marketing for Inphi's high-speed connectivity products. "As an agnostic vendor to the type of technology used in QSFP28 modules, Inphi continues to work with a broad ecosystem of partners using Silicon Photonics, VCSEL or other optics and laser sources to further the deployment of 100G."

Luxtera is also showing its 100G Silicon Photonics chipset packaged in a QSFP28.
