These products are based on Credo’s proven, first-generation Seagull platform, with the addition of integrated VCSEL and EML drivers. The new products include the single channel Seagull 51, dual channel Seagull 111, and quad channel Seagull 201 PAM4 DSPs.

Seagull 51 is a single channel DSP that supports bitmux (2 x 25Gbps NRZ to 1x 50Gbps PAM4) and retimer (1 x 50Gbps to 1x 50Gbps PAM4) modes. It operates over the full industrial temperature range and is designed for next-generation 5G wireless fronthaul and mid-haul, or datacenter, applications. The Seagull 111 and Seagull 201, respectively, are dual and quad channel retimers which are ideal for high-density, datacenter Active Optical Cables (AOCs) or optical transceivers. Seagull 111 and Seagull 201 include dedicated phase-locked loops (PLLs) per channel and can be seamlessly used in breakout applications.

“Credo’s first-generation Seagull products gained success across different markets thanks to excellent performance and power dissipation,” said Scott Feller, VP of Marketing in Credo. “The second-generation Seagull products extend those capabilities with integrated EML and VCSEL drivers while enabling customers to utilize designs and software based on the first-generation hardware and software for a fast, smooth migration to these new Seagull devices.”
