), a premier semiconductor solutions provider for wired and
wireless communications, recently introduced the BCM84128, the
world's fastest 100G CMOS transmitter PHY for long-haul, regional
and metropolitan data transport.
The BCM84128 transmitter features an aggregate data rate of 128
Gbps, supporting high-capacity optical modules while consuming
60% less power than other similar devices. With the growth in
demand for broadband applications, there is an intense need to
manage the exponential increase in traffic driven by video and
other high bandwidth multimedia applications.
Broadcom continues to drive innovation and technological
excellence across a broad range of communication end markets to
enhance device performance, cut down costs, and improve the
overall power efficiency.
According to analyst firm Dell'Oro, the market for 100 Gbps
transmitters is expected to grow approximately 140% in 2013. With
the current upgrade of networks to terabit-capacity equipment,
optical transport is expected to grow in long haul and metro
