GigPeak offers low power 32Gbps linear coherent TIA chip

Semiconductor IC developer GigPeak, formerly GigOptix, is now sampling the GX32222, a 32Gb/s dual-channel linear trans-impedance amplifier (TIA) for use in high-speed optical receiver modules operating at 100Gb/s, 200Gb/s and beyond.

Ovum projects that 100G port shipments will continue growing with accelerated compound annual growth rate of 25–30 per cent over the next four years till 2020, while being augmented with next generations of higher-speed coherent single wavelength ports, for both line cards and pluggable modules.
