TeraSquare to Unveil a World First, Their Ground Breaking New Reverse Gearbox IC for Next-Generation 100GE Networks  

 

TeraSquare Inc. of Korea, one of the leading companies in fabless semiconductor development, will reveal the worlds’ first MLG2.0 single chip solution for 100GE networks, at this year’s ECOC exhibition. The new IC is the first for the market and will revolutionize the industry by enabling 10Gbps channels to be used with 100GE data rates, whilst dramatically improving signal quality and making massive power consumption savings.

The MLG2.0 is a reverse gearbox for CDR applications that converts up to ten 10Gbps channels or a combination of 10Gbps and 40Gbps channels up to 100GE.  It is designed for next-generation 100GE small form factor modules such as CFP2, CPF4 and QSFP28 and is fully compliant to OIF.  The IC only consumes 1.4W of power and has all of the features of the TeraSquare 100G parallel CDR launched last year.

Upgrading to 100Gbps data-rate is progressing rapidly within the market, as well as a big increase in the number of ports using legacy data-rate 10GE and 40GE. These rates are set to be widely used for the next 10 years, leaving the market with a huge demand in solutions that can support the legacy data-rate at 100Gbps data rate. MLG2.0 is the right solution for this demand that is set to hit the market. TeraSquare are already working on the future beyond MLG2.0, MLG3.0 is currently being standardized and will include a forward-error-correction (FEC) function.

“We are very excited to be exhibiting at ECOC again this year and once again bringing to the market our new product.  We expect samples to be ready for evaluation by the end of this year and in full production during 2015.  TeraSquare is a proven company providing low power and highly integrated 100G solutions using a low power CMOS design platform. We believe this platform is a few years ahead of other competitors’ technologies and reflects our position in the market and will build on the success we have currently been seeing with some of the tier 1 telecom players,” said TeraSquare CEO, Dr. Jinho Park.

Founded in December of 2010, TeraSquare strives to be one of the leading companies in the area of 100Gbps Ethernet IC design.  Undoubtedly a promising market in the near future, the 100 Gbps Ethernet IC design is a challenging field that demands a high level of competency and capability that only a select few aspiring providers possess. With an ever-increasing demand for high speed Ethernet solutions in the IT industry, TeraSquare is gearing up to meet its goal of becoming the unparalleled provider of high speed Ethernet IC as well as other high speed ICs.
