@sranje: I have not seen this product from Broadcom but I guess at 300-pins, it is a BGA package with flipchip die/dice on it. The power dissipation data of 16W total (Linley group's guess) probably also includes the Mux/Demux which is 2.4W: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/broadcom-announces-industrys-first-cmos-40g-phy-for-long-haul-optical-transport-135915543.html MP Divakar

How are these chips packaged -- in a flip chip package?

Two chip sets Mux and Demux BCM84142 and BCM84141 will be able to provide 40Gb data rate, but for getting 100gb multiple chips will be required to be used with some kind of fast multiplexers.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
