Spectra7's GC1122 GaugeChangerTM Chips now
CLARA, Calif., April 6,
2022 /PRNewswire/ -- (TSXV: SEV) (OTCQB: SPVNF)
Spectra7 Microsystems Inc. ("Spectra7" or the
"Company"), a leading provider of high-performance analog
semiconductor products for broadband connectivity markets, today
announced that it will partnering with Volex plc ("Volex") to
demonstrate Spectra7's new 112G PAM4 GaugeChangerTM chip
intended for next generation 800Gbps data center interconnects at
this year's annual DesignCon Conference and Exhibition being held
in Santa Clara, CA from
April 6-7, 2022. The demonstration
will highlight the performance of Spectra7's new GC1122 chip
compensating for 112Gbps PAM4 signal loss over 4m of Volex 28AWG
high-speed twin-ax cable.
"Customers continue to demand copper as they move to
next-generation 25.6 and 51.2 Tbps platforms and 800G switching
solutions," said Alan Weckel,
Founder and Technology Analyst with 650 Group. "We see the 800G and
above Ethernet switch market growing at over 150% CAGR over the
next 5 years to over $10 billion, and
Spectra7 and cable partners such as Volex are sure to benefit from
this CAPEX spending growth."
"We are excited to have Volex as a partner for this impressive
demonstration of what is achievable with our GaugeChanger™
technology and their cable technology," said Spectra7 CEO
Raouf Halim. "We look forward to
bringing 800G cables to market with them later this year."
The GC1122 is the latest addition to the GaugeChanger™ product
line and extends the data rate from 56 to 112Gbps per lane. Since
the GC1122 is analog and highly linear, dynamics such as line rate
adjustment, multi-level signaling, intermittent line silence,
transmit pre-emphasis or amplitude adjustment and receiver
adaptivity are fully preserved. GC1122 chips are now sampling to
leading cable partners and end customers.
GaugeChanger™ is an innovative technology that allows copper to
extend much longer lengths without the cost and power penalty of
optics or DSP based retimed copper solutions. It works equally well
at 25 Gbps NRZ, 50 Gbps PAM-4 and 100 Gbps PAM-4 enabling new
connector standards of 100, 200, 400 and 800 Gbps.
DesignCon is the premier high-speed interconnect and system
design conference attended by engineers from around the world.
Spectra7 will be exhibiting in booth #1158.
