Semtech Unveils New Products for Next-Gen Data Centers, PON and 5G Wireless Networks to Address Increasing Data Demands
Semtech also joins Mobile Optical Pluggable Alliance (MOPA) in commitment to advance 5G requirements in optical solutions
CAMARILLO, Calif., March 7, 2023 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a high-performance semiconductor, IoT systems and Cloud connectivity service provider, today announced several new products in its Signal Integrity portfolio that extend the company’s leadership in optical fiber integrated circuit solutions for data center, wireless, and passive optical networks (PON). The new products provide customers with the low power, low cost and low-latency solutions needed for hyperscale data center applications, wireless infrastructure, and access and enterprise networking.
The digital revolution—spurred by the rapid adoption of IoT-based technology, Artificial Intelligence (AI), automotive, Cloud services, mobile subscriptions and more—is rapidly increasing worldwide data usage that drives the need for higher data rates in data center, PON and wireless networks. Semtech’s optical networking platform provides the backbone IC technology to support these higher rates and global data usage. By expanding its award-winning optical portfolio that includes Tri-Edge™, FiberEdge®, CopperEdge™ and PON-X™ products, Semtech continues to support the data center, PON and wireless networks, and is enabling customers to meet current and future optical networking needs with power, cost, and latency advantages.
“Optical solutions are vital to connect and enable high performance digital platforms. By improving networks at the chip level, Semtech is allowing our customers to prepare their networks for the exponential growth in data demands expected in the next few years. These new products, announced at OFC, underscore our leading position in the market and Semtech’s ability to address every level of the digital ecosystem including optical module customers, system providers and end users,” said Timothy Vang, vice president of marketing and applications in Semtech’s Signal Integrity Group.
At OFC 2023, Semtech announced several new products, including:
