- The MxL9142’s frequency response, low noise, and low power dissipation deliver optimal 45Gbaud intradyne coherent receiver (ICR) performance
CARLSBAD, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 16, 2017 — MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home and wired and wireless infrastructure markets, today announced the MxL9142, a dual-channel 45Gbaud linear coherent transimpedance amplifier (TIA) for high-bandwidth dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) coherent applications.
The MxL9142 is a dual-channel coherent TIA supporting high data rate of 45Gbaud for 200Gbps / 400Gbps optical networking systems. Programmable channel bandwidth and an input equalizer allow receiver performance to be fine-tuned to work with different photo detectors (PD). The device offers industry leading linearity, low noise, and low power dissipation, which makes it the ideal TIA to use for next-generation ICR modules with high performance requirements.
The MxL9142 supports the low differential output swings required for next-generation low-power coherent DSPs. The high transimpedance gain is ideally suited for metro networks, which experience greater signal loss due to the prevalence of older fiber and multiple interconnects.
“100Gbps coherent system deployments are moving full-speed ahead, driven by the continued growth in bandwidth consumption in data centers and telecom networks. 45Gbaud technology, combined with higher modulation like DP-32QAM, can deliver up to 400Gbps data rates in a single wavelength,” said Bird Yuan, MaxLinear’s Director of Marketing for High Speed Interconnect Products. “MaxLinear now offers a complete coherent TIA product family to address the high-performance needs of next-generation high bandwidth coherent receivers.”
The MxL9142’s pin-out assignment and functionality are fully compatible with MaxLinear's MxL9105 32Gbaud coherent TIA, which allows one common package design for both 32Gbaud and 45Gbaud ICRs.
The MxL9142 began sampling in March 2017. For more information contact MaxLinear sales at email@example.com.

Cautionary Note About Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the
meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
Forward-looking statements include, among others, statements concerning
or implying future financial performance or trends and growth
opportunities affecting MaxLinear, including statements related to the
performance of MaxLinear’s MxL9142. 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 and are subject to various risks and
uncertainties. The closing of recent acquisitions of wireless
infrastructure assets from Microsemi and Broadcom present particular
risks associated with our ability to integrate the acquired businesses,
and maintain relationships with employees, customers, and vendors. In
addition, our current expectations with respect to the size of the
available market and growth opportunities in future years are subject to
substantial management assumptions that are themselves subject to
material risks and uncertainties. Additional risks and uncertainties
that could affect our assumptions and expectations with respect to the
completed acquisitions that also generally affect our business,
operating results, financial condition, and stock price, 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, including pending
litigation against us by a third parties in the United States District
Court in Delaware and Superior Court of California; 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 MaxLinear’s filings with the United
States Securities and Exchange Commission, including our most recent
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016
and our Current Reports on Form 8-K. All forward-looking statements are
qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. MaxLinear is
