Semtech Announces Availability of Semtech’s Tri-Edge CDR for 200G and 400G Data Center Applications

Quad Tri-Edge CDR with integrated VCSEL laser driver and quad Tri-Edge CDR with integrated TIA is targeted for 850nm applications

CIOE Expo in Shenzhen, China, Sept. 4, 2018 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, today announced first samples of its quad Tri-Edge CDR (GN2558) with an integrated vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) driver and its quad Tri-Edge CDR (GN2559) with an integrated transimpedance amplifier (TIA).

This platform bundle is optimized for low power and low cost PAM4 short-reach optical interconnect for data center and active optical cable (AOC) applications.

“With this Tri-Edge PAM4 CDR bundle, Semtech further demonstrates its innovative and disruptive solutions to alternatives available in the market today. We expect this to enable the next-gen deployment for data centers to allow higher bandwidth growth while supporting an aggressive cost structure,” said Dr. Timothy Vang, Vice President of Marketing and Applications for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group.

Semtech will privately demonstrate the new solutions in its CIOE booth, 1B02, at the Shenzhen Convention Center.
