Optical Interconnect ICs


IDT is a leading innovator of optical drivers, transimpedance amplifiers, and retimer semiconductor IC solutions for both the telecom (long-haul and metro) and datacom (short-reach and long-reach) markets.

For the telecom market, IDT features a broad family of wideband optical modulator driver amplifiers and transimpedance amplifiers to serve the exploding need for fiber optic data transmission. As the demand for bandwidth increases from service providers, data centers, and enterprise networks, these optical solutions – offering power- and cost-efficiency in a small form factor – are ideal for use in metro, regional, and long haul applications. IDT’s products include a wide range of modulator drivers and transimpedance amplifiers (TIA) for line side 100G to 400G and beyond fiber optic transmitters and receivers; as well as linear and limiting MZM drivers for long haul and metro transmission, linear TIAs for long haul coherent receivers, and limiting TIAs for shorter range receivers.

For the datacom market, IDT provides an industry-leading portfolio of innovative optical, analog, and mixed signal solutions for high-speed data transmission products. These solutions address the challenging demands of higher data rates with lower power dissipation required in data center, high-performance computing, and consumer applications. The comprehensive datacom products portfolio covers single, quad, and 12-channel solutions, and supports data throughput from 1Gbps up to 400Gbps, while supporting key industry standards such as Ethernet, Infiniband, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH, and consumer applications such as HDMI and USB3.
