100/200G coherent DSP targets long haul, metro and data centre networking

September 13, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Inphi Corporation has started sampling its M200, an ultra-low power Coherent Digital Signal Processor (DSP), supporting 100G and 200G data rates for long haul, metro and data center interconnect applications. 

M200 is the first offering in Inphi’s 16nm LightSpeed-III family of SoC devices, from the company’s ClariPhy acquisition. The LightSpeed-III M200 features an innovative low power digital and analog design to enable next generation line card density while achieving best-in-class OSNR performance critical for OEMs and operators to efficiently expand network capacities. It supports two host SerDes with selectable 10G and 28G NRZ interfaces with 100G client FEC termination to eliminate the need for external gearboxes. The DSP also integrates FIPS compliant AES256 encryption, Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) monitoring and complete OTN overhead processing to enable high density and cost optimized Metro and DCI platforms
