Quake signal processing technology to reduce 10 Gig Ethernet cost

Quake Technologies today announced the availability of the QT2035S, an integrated physical layer IC for all 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) applications. To quote Mitch Kahn, Quake's vice president of marketing:

Today, the wholesale cost for a typical XFP module for short-reach 10G Ethernet is approximately $350. Using Quake's new QT2035S and SFP+ technology, the cost of a module for this same reach can be reduced to below $100. At this new price point, 10G Ethernet becomes very compelling for a range of high-volume applications
