NEW!! Emerging Market for PAM4 and Coherent DSPs


February 2019- $5,000




This report analyses the market for semiconductor IC chipsets used in optical transceivers and related products. The chipsets include laser drivers, CDRs, TIAs and in some cases FEC, PAM4 and coherent DSP ICs. Demand for 400GbE connectivity inside mega datacenters and 400G DWDM optics on the outside boost demand for PAM4 and coherent DSP chips, making it a very attractive business opportunity for 2020-2023.

The report analyses the global market for IC chipsets by application, breaking the market down into CWDM/DWDM, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, FTTx and Wireless Fronthaul and AOCs/EOMs segments. It also includes a database with historical data for 2015-2018 and a 2019-2023 forecast for shipments, average selling prices and sales of IC chips sets sorted by type of transceivers or other modules where these are used. It also includes profiles of the leading suppliers of high-speed optical interface ICs.
