CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for broadband communications applications, today announced the new MxL9201, a 32Gbps quad-lane modulator driver for 100Gbps long-haul telecommunications network applications.
The company also announced that FiberHome Telecommunications Technologies Co., based in Wuhan, China, has selected the IC for use in its latest 100Gbps metro and long-haul networking systems.
The MxL9201 offers high-precision amplification of four 32Gbps input signals to output levels as high as 7V. The MxL9201 drives a lithium niobate modulator to deliver exceptional performance to long-haul transmission applications at industry leading power and price points.
The part is delivered in a single surface-mount package, which takes up much less board space and costs less than competitive solutions that are connectorized and bulky.
“Our telecom customers targeting long-haul transmission applications need a high-quality, high-performance, power efficient and cost effective device to amplify a 100Gbps signal for long distance transmission,” said Will Torgerson, Global Sales Vice President for MaxLinear. “The MxL9201 delivers on each of these metrics in a way that conserves board space.”
The new MxL9201 will be on display at OFC 2015 (March 24-26; booth 1968).
The MxL9201 is now sampling, with general availability planned for May 2015. For more product information, contact MaxLinear sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
