We are focused on delivering our new 5G wireless radio and fiber-optic datacenter high-speed interconnect products as we expand into new large, high-growth infrastructure markets,” commented Kishore Seendripu, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO.

“We are excited to confirm our first 5G wireless radio-platform design-win at a tier-1 wireless OEM for our industry leading 14nm CMOS 4x4 Quad RF transceiver system-on-chip solution. Early customer evaluation feedback across major OEMs confirms that we are hitting the mark on the feature sets required by this demanding market. We are on track to see initial revenues in 2020 for the 5G market enabled by significant content increases per base station. In early 2020, we also expect production adoption of our 100 gigabit and 400 gigabit PAM4 DSP SoCs in the hyperscale data center market.” continued Dr. Seendripu.
