ClariPhy Communications develops state-of-the-art mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs) for 10, 40 and 100 Gb/s optical networking and communication applications, aiming to capitalize on this dynamic market growth. Initially funded in June 2004, the company is headquartered in Irvine, California, with an office in Silicon Valley and a design center in Cordoba, Argentina (under the subsidiary ClariPhy Argentina SA). ClariPhy has assembled a world-class international team with deep experience in digital signal processing (DSP) and mixed-signal IC design. Its ICs incorporate sophisticated signal processing algorithms that increase the performance, speed and reach of optical networks while simultaneously reducing their cost. ClariPhy’s customers are OEMs of networking equipment such as switches, servers, and optical modules. The Company addresses several major markets including:
• Enterprise local area networks (LANs), which use multi-mode fiber (MMF) to connect workgroup and backbone switches in floor-to-floor, building-to-building, and riser environments;
• Enterprise datacenters, which require minimal cost, power, and data latency for switch-to-switch, switch-to-server, and switch-to-storage connectivity; and
• Telecom wide area networks (WANs) utilizing single-mode fiber (SMF) for data transmission across distances up to several hundred kilometers in metro, regional and long haul environments.
