High-Speed Networking Apps Get Higher Octane GaAs ICs

Offered as a complete solution for high-speed networking applications, these second generation gallium arsenide (GaAs) devices include a limiting amplifier and both a 16:1 multiplexer and 1:16 demultiplexer. The three new GaAs devices are designed for both receiver and transmitter applications at optical carrier rates of 10 Gb/s.
Said to be an industry first, the KGL4217 2V limiting amplifier reduces total power consumption by as much as one half compared to other solutions. Mounted in 48-pin packages, the KGL4221 16:1 multiplexer and KGL4222 1:16 demultiplexer are designed to transfer data to and from lower frequencies by synchronously merging 16-bit parallel data streams. The lower frequency data streams can then be reconstructed into their original data formats for distribution. Each of the three devices is priced under $2000.
