About Us

At MaxLinear, we build products that accelerate network deployments for next-generation data centers, service providers and AI applications.


MaxLinear is a leading provider of High-Speed Interconnect ICs that enable next generation fiber-optic modules for data center, metro, and long-haul transport networks. We build highly integrated semiconductor SoCs that move big data around the world at ever increasing speeds.

MaxLinear provides a full range of PAM4 DSPs for applications ranging from 100G to 800G, supporting 53G/lane and 106G/lane options on both the host and line side interfaces for data center connectivity. Our transimpedance amplifiers (TIAs) and drivers enable coherent long-haul and metro fiber optic solutions that enable cloud and service providers to increase bandwidth over distances in excess of 1000km.


Industry’s 1st 5nm 800G DSP

In May 2021, MaxLinear announced the sampling of its 5nm Keystone family of 400G/800G PAM4 DSPs. They are the world’s first 5nm PAM4 DSPs and provide industry leading power consumption while supporting 106G/lane electrical and optical I/O.

In a compact footprint (12mm x 12mm) suitable for next generation QSFP-DD800 and OSFP optical modules, Keystone DSPs include integrated drivers with both differential and single-ended options that are capable of directly driving both SiPh and EML optical interfaces.


Virtual Experience

MaxLinear’s industry leading 5nm PAM4 DSP will be on display during OFC. Book a time for a virtual or face-to-face meeting to see Keystone demos and learn how our solutions can enable your designs both today and in the future.
