Semtech 推出适用于数据中心应用的 PAM4 CDR 平台 Tri-Edge
Semtech 的新型 Tri-Edge CDR 平台可实现低功耗和低成本的 PAM4 连接
加利福尼亚州卡马里奥，2018 年 3 月 29 日 - Semtech Corporation（纳斯达克代码：SMTC）是行业领先的供应商，提供高性能模拟和混合信号半导体产品以及先进算法。公司今天宣布正在开发 Tri-Edge，这是一种 PAM4 时钟和数据恢复 (CDR) 平台，针对数据中心和有源光缆 (AOC) 应用的低功率和低成本 PAM4 光互连进行了优化。Tri-Edge 是为下一代数据中心的 PAM4 通信协议开发的新 CDR 平台技术，于 2018 年 3 月在 OFC 的 Semtech 展台上面向预约客户展出。
Tri-Edge 建立在 Semtech ClearEdge® NRZ CDR 平台技术的成功基础之上，并将其扩展到 PAM4 信令。Semtech 的 ClearEdge CDR 是世界上选用最广泛的光收发器 CDR，可用于 10G 应用和 100G 数据中心应用。
根据光学性能、CDR 补偿电路和 PAM4 技术的最新进展，我们可以得出结论：对于较短距离的高速应用，低功耗 PAM4 CDR 解决方案在技术上是可行的。Semtech 的 Tri-Edge CDR 平台预计将适用于 100G、200G 和 400G 要求。这个多方面的开发项目旨在满足全球快速发展的数据中心的需求，利用垂直腔表面发射激光器 (VCSEL) 和基于硅光子的光学器件以及优化的 Tri-Edge CDR，实现颠覆性的性能、成本和功率性能。
“The rapidly growing demand for bandwidth in the data center market requires a disruptive solution to meet the power, density and cost requirements. By combining leading-edge technologies with a focused application, we can enable a disruptive solution that we believe will meet the needs of the data centers in both the near-term and long-term,” said Imran Sherazi, Vice President of Marketing and Applications for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group.
