LineSpeed™ 100G Low Power Retimer Supports IEEE and OIF Standards and
CFP2, CFP4 and QSFP28 Module Form Factors Used in Carrier, Enterprise,
and Data Center Applications

–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sep. 15, 2014–
(NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast,
intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today
announced its new LineSpeed™
100G Low Power Retimer
integrated circuit (IC) for next-generation
networking and communications systems. The full-duplex quad retimer
device supports CFP2, CFP4 and QSFP28 module CDR requirements with a
single chip and delivers a strong self-adapting receive equalization for
ease of connection and improved signal integrity for up to 20dB of
insertion loss. The device features the industry’s lowest power
dissipation at 700mW, small full-duplex footprint, reference-free
operation, integrated system and line side loopbacks, and on-chip PRBS
generation, error checking, eye monitor and diagnostic capabilities
using the MoSys IC Spotlight™ Analyzer.

The LineSpeed MSH110 IC is a single chip, CMOS device designed to
support IEEE 802.3ba and OIF CEI-3.0 electrical standards. Specifically
optimized for low-power 100G module and line card applications, the
MSH110 device optimizes performance, space and power for 100G modules
and line cards used in data center, enterprise or service provider
systems. The device supports Ethernet and OTN baud rates ranging from 24
– 28 Gbps and includes adaptive equalization to support applications
ranging from CEI-28G-VSR to CEI-28G-MR (up to 20dB insertion loss). The
device has eight independent channels, each consisting of a receiver
connected to a corresponding transmitter. Data can be input and output
on all eight channels simultaneously.

Key Features:

  • Supports 100G IEEE and OTN standards and module form factors (CFP2,
    CFP4, QSFP28)
  • Optimized for ultra low power and integration
    • Industry lowest power – 700mW
    • High integration – full duplex 100G (8 CDRs)
  • Ease of use for OEM and carriers
    • Self adapting Rx equalization simplifies connectivity
    • Equalization supports up to 20dB for improved signal integrity,
      margin and distance Tx equalization for flexibility
    • Extensive test features, including internal loopbacks, PRBS
      generation / checking, eye monitor
    • Lane swapping and lane duplication features
  • Design simplicity
    • Reference-free option (includes both reference and reference-free
    • Leverage common CDR platform across optical standards
    • Small form factor 8x8mm FCCSP

“In the productization of 100G module and line card solutions for
systems ranging from 100s of Gigabits to terabits per second, challenges
in power, ease of connectivity, signal integrity, testability, economics
and footprint must be met in order to enable mass deployment,” stated John
, VP of sales and marketing at
. “The LineSpeed 100G
Ultra Low Power
retimer leverages CMOS technology to address these
challenges with the industry’s lowest power consumption and highest
integration, self-adapting receive equalization for quick connection and
robust operation, and extensive self-test and loopback features for
system testability.”

MSH110 LineSpeed 100G Low Power Retimer product is offered in an
8mm x 8mm FCCSP package and sampling to early technology partners now.
