Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 7 -- Scintera Networks, a start-up developer of high-speed signal processing technology for high-speed communications, announced today it has raised $9.5 million in a second round of private venture funding. Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers led the second round with participation from existing investors August Capital and Sevin Rosen Funds. The new round brings Scintera's funding to date to $17.7 million.

In September, Scintera introduced its advanced signal-processing platform (ASPP) that enables very high-speed signal processing at 10 Gb/s and beyond. Scintera is shipping the SCN3142 electronic dispersion compensation engine device for enterprise and storage applications and the SCN5028 electronic dispersion compensation engine device for metro applications based on ASPP.

Scintera said it will use the second round funding to expand the company as major enterprise, storage and telecom OEMs begin high-volume production to meet the demand for 10 Gb bandwidth.
