MoSys Announces New, Low Price Point for Its LineSpeed(TM) Flex 100G PHY IC Product Family

Gearbox and Retimer Devices Now Available Below $50 Per Device in High-Volume Quantities

SAN JOSE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 23, 2021 / MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ:MOSY) is focused on Accelerating Data Intelligence and provides both semiconductor and IP solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for Cloud, networking, security and communications systems. Today, MoSys announced that its LineSpeed Flex 100G PHY IC devices are now available in high-volume, production-ready quantities at less than $50 per device. The LineSpeed Flex product family is a set of 100G PHY IC devices that support a wide variety of gearbox, retimer and other functions typically used on line cards or inside optical modules to support multiple data rates and standards.

“The accelerating adoption of 100Gb Ethernet switch and line card ports in the Cloud datacenter and large enterprise markets has driven the growth of 100G optical transceiver modules used to interconnect switching, routing, computing and other equipment,” stated MoSys’ President and CEO, Dan Lewis. “Our ability to support customers, whether large or small, coupled with our aggressive price points make our LineSpeed Flex products ideal solutions for 100G port designs.”

“We have worked hard to bring this new, highly competitive price point to customers,” said Scott Irwin, Vice President, LineSpeed Products. “Our industry standard 100G Gearbox (MSH320S) is production ready and now priced below $50 per device in high volume. With optional embedded 100Gb Ethernet RS-FEC (MSH320SF), these devices can support all QSFP optical module types, such as LR4, SR4, PSM4 and CWDM, when utilizing a low-cost FPGA with sub-25Gb/s serial interfaces.”

MoSys’ portfolio of LineSpeed Flex products includes:

  • 100G Gearbox (with or without 100GbE RS-FEC)
  • Multi-Link Gearbox (MLG)
  • Protocol Independent Retimer (with or without 100GbE RS-FEC)
  • Additional Multiplexing/Demultiplexing and Redundant Link functions

Key features of the LineSpeed devices include:

  • Support for IEEE and OIF 10, 25, 40 and 100G standards
  • Protocol independent retimers that support a PLL per lane for mixed port speeds
  • Self-adapting receive equalizers for ease of connection
  • Optional 100G 802.3bj Clause 91 RS-FEC for IEEE 100GbE and optical module MSA support (e.g., SR4, CWDM4, PSM4)
  • Package and power options for line card, daughter card and module applications
  • Evaluation and reference board schematics and layouts
  • Application support for customer integration
