Telluride chipset accelerates the transition from 100Gbps to
400Gbps optical connectivity by enabling 100Gbps per wavelength
CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 12, 2018--
MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a leading provider of communication SoCs for
optical communications that integrate radio frequency (RF), broadband
analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits, digital signal processing
and modems, will showcase the industry’s first 400Gbps transceiver
chipset at the Optical Networking and Communication Conference &
Exhibition (OFC) in San Diego, CA, from March 13-15, 2018.
The Telluride chipset addresses the intensifying demands for efficient
processing of burgeoning internet traffic by enabling hyperscale data
centers to transition from 100Gbps to 400Gbps optical interconnects.
Confirmed guests to the company’s meeting room will witness the
best-in-class performance of this industry leading chipset that includes
products from the recently announced Telluride product family; the
MxL9354X PAM4 DSP SoC, and the MxL9154 56Gbaud PAM4 TIA.
The MxL9354X is a family of low-power high-performance PAM4 DSP SoCs
that enable 400Gbps optical modules using a 4x100Gbps optics interface.
These SoCs are suitable for use within QSFP-DD, OSFP and COBO module
form factors. Two options are currently available; the MxL93542 that
integrates an EA-EML driver with 1.8V PP SE swing, and the MxL93543 that
offers differential 800mV peak-to-peak swing for non EA-EML-based optics.
The MxL9154 is a quad linear TIA that supports 4x100Gbps receiver
optical sub assembly (ROSA) modules. This TIA offers very low input
referred noise of 11pA/√Hz and linearity better than 3 percent while
consuming only 200mW per channel.
The Telluride chipset enables optical module vendors to utilize the
latest PAM4-based 100Gbps wavelength technology and deliver solutions
with the best overall performance, power and cost.
“Rapid growth in cloud computing is driving the datacenter transition
from 100G optical interconnects to 400Gbps based on 4x100G technology,”
said Justin Abbott, Senior Product Line Manager at Lumentum. “We are
pleased to see the introduction of MaxLinear’s 400Gbps chipset as it
enables optical module vendors to accelerate the industry’s transition

long-haul fiber optic solutions and see a live demonstration of the
400Gbps data center transceiver chipset, please contact MaxLinear sales
MaxLinear would like to thank various ecosystem partners, such as
Keysight Technologies, who provided valuable high-speed optical
equipment and components to make this technology showcase possible.

Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
Forward-looking statements include, among others, statements concerning
the Telluride product family and statements concerning or implying the
performance of MaxLinear’s technologies, their potential use cases, and
the potential impact of these technologies on our business and future
operating results. These forward-looking statements involve known and
unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause actual
results to be materially different from any future results expressed or
implied by the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements
are based on management’s current, preliminary expectations. In
particular, our future operating results are substantially dependent on
our assumptions about market trends and conditions and our expectations
with respect to recently completed acquisitions, including our ability
to integrate our recently completed acquisition of Exar Corporation.
Additional risks and uncertainties arising from our operations generally
and our recently completed acquisitions include intense competition in
our industry; our dependence on a limited number of customers for a
substantial portion of our revenues; uncertainties concerning how end
user markets for our products will develop; potential uncertainties
arising from continued consolidation among cable television and
satellite operators in our target markets and continued consolidation
among competitors within the semiconductor industry generally; our
ability to develop and introduce new and enhanced products on a timely
basis and achieve market acceptance of those products, particularly as
we seek to expand outside of our historic markets; potential decreases
in average selling prices for our products; risks relating to
intellectual property protection and the prevalence of intellectual
property litigation in our industry; indemnification obligations of Exar
arising from a recent divestiture; the impact on our financial condition
of acquisition indebtedness and cash usage arising from the Exar
transaction; our reliance on a limited number of third party
manufacturers; and our lack of long-term supply contracts and dependence
on limited sources of supply. In addition to these risks and
uncertainties, investors should review the risks and uncertainties
contained in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission
(SEC), including the information under the caption “Risk Factors” in our
